Storage for Distress Ink Foam Pads

I am sure that someone else has thought of this, but I have not seen it yet. It just occurred to me yesterday when I was wrestling with all the little foam applicators for my TH Distress Inks.

VELCRO!

Instead of having all the little foam pads get tossed around in my box of ink, I decided to put Velcro hook tape on the sides of the box and it organizes it perfectly.



It is the peel and stick Velcro so it was super easy and it keeps me from having to search for the right color pad or having to move them out of my way every time I get something out of the box.

I put them in a box, but this idea would be great for a wall or the inside of a drawer or cabinet door.

Just wanted to share the news with you.
Hope it helps someone else :)

Great idea - my only problem is that I must be colour impaired, I often cannot tell some of the colours apart when they are on the foam pads.
