Make Your Own Ink Pad Storage!!

Handmade ink pad storage, positivelypapercraft


Hi Everyone,
Thank you for stopping by my Blog Today. I am rather excited about Today's project! Quite a bit of work went into it and i am pleased with the result. Its not perfect but then again its handmade. Its all made from paper pad backing covers/old cereal boxes & anything which resembles chipboard. I doubled up the cereal boxes and also the paper pad backing sheets as i wanted them to be quite thick.

Positivelypapercraft Ink pad storage


My storage unit holds 14 Ink pads. It will not hold Stampin Up pads though. The paper i used to cover it is so beautiful!! Its from Stamperia & its called Wonderland. Of course you can choose whatever you like to decorate yours. I also put some fancy Gold corners on that i have had in my stash for a while. They were glued on with my favourite Super Glue i get from Amazon!
 I love this glue & its the best i have ever used! Once that Glue is on, trust me! Its not coming off again. I will put any links i have for products at the end of this post. I normally just put them under my Youtube videos but i will also put them on here as well.

I am thrilled at how strong this storage unit has turned out. I hope you like it and will give it a go. Just take your time with it and make sure you have everything prepared & ready. As i said in the video, the only thing i was not happy with was the shelf's. Some of them slightly stick out. That is easily rectified if you just cut your slits a little longer. This will allow the shelf's to sit back further into the box.

Please find all the measurements listed below in metric & Imperial:

CHIPBOARD SPINE MEASURES 6 7/8" X 4"

  4. Another great storage idea Ann. I don't have the room for one of these, but if I did, I'd be making about 3 of them and stacking them! TYFS
