MFT's 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash Day 5 - Ink Pads and Refills


Welcome to the last day of MFT's 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash. It's been a really fun week and I hope you have enjoyed all the organizing ideas. I know my room has never looked so good! 

Today we are sharing organizational ideas for ink pad storage and ink refills. You can stop by the MFT blog for the list of designers sharing ideas today. 


My ink pads sit on the table behind my main desk. The ink pads on the left are in an older storage unit. It so old I couldn't tell you where I got it. I plan to replaced with another unit like the one on the right. I have another one on order from Organize More. You have some color options to choose from for your storage. My is black with white inserts and hold 60 ink pads. 


I added the name of the ink to each pad and store the pad with the matching ink refill and a Mini Ink Blending Foam Pad. My inks are divided into categories by ink type, Premium Dye Inks, Hybrid Inks, and Pigment Inks. When I get my additional storage unit I plan to add a section for Distress Inks. 


There is room on the top of the unit to store my extra Mini Ink Blending Tools, glitter, and embossing powders. 


As with my other posts this week I used my Brother P-Touch that I purchased through Amazon. But for the ink pads I used a smaller label tape, 1/4" Black Print on White Tape. 


Storing the ink pad, refill, and a sponge together works so well! I love using the sponge with the ink for stencils and sponging around the edges of card stock. 


Stop by the MFT blog for all details about the great prize packages that will be given away each of the five days.

Have a good weekend! Maybe you will cleaning and organizing your space!

  2. I like the idea of keeping the sponges in the same place with the inks. I saw some where, that they used velcro on the bottom of the inks to store the sponges too..

  3. I Velcro my sponges to the bottom of each ink pad as well on the large pads. The 1"cubes will hold the round foam without Velcro. I wish I was able to store my markers with the inks/refills. That would be great!

  4. I love that you can store the ink, refill, and sponge all together. That makes it so much easier! I have mine attached to the bottom of the Distress inks with a bit of Velcro, but nothing for all my other inks.
