I am moving from my tiny craft corner to a little bit larger “craft wall.” The room is small, but I plan to use every inch along that one wall. The room still needs to be available as a guest room with the Murphy bed and a baby room with the Pack and Play and diaper changing for babysitting our granddaughter. All the craft stuff needs to tuck away out of sight for the guests and safely locked up for the baby. And it also needs to be clear and safe for our new Guide Dog Puppy in Training to play while I craft.

There was just no room for my Color Caddy. What to do? I didn’t want to spend lots of money after splurging on the granite counter. I am so happy with what I came up with! I have a great storage solution for the price of one sheet of foam core board, some card stock, and adhesive. It even gave me a place to tuck in my Stampin’ Scrub!

You can make it for just a few stamp pads or for the whole collection like I did. I usually include links for the supplies, but you probably really do have everything you need. I used Fast Fuse to make each stamp pad box, but you could use Tear and Tape. I used Glue Dots to adhere the boxes to the foam core board, but you could use any adhesive.

These treat bags are quick and easy to make. You can punch a hole and tie with the ribbon, but I used hidden thin magnets. The bag will hold four Hershey’s Kisses or a diamond ring.

Clear Case Ink Refill openThis has got to be the very best way in the world to store ink refills!  Ten bottles fit perfectly in their color coordinated boxes in a wide (wood-mount) case.  A bit of Window Sheet makes a little shelf.
