Ink Cube Storage

Recently a member on the Papertrey Ink forum asked about ink cube storage, so I thought I would share how I store my ink cubes.  I love ink cubes; I think it's a great way to get all the ink colors without buying all those large ink pads, especially since I don't use certain colors all that often.  I have all the Memento dew drop inks and most of the Papertrey ink cubes.

While I was in Joanne's one day, I found this:

StorNCarry Slim Scrapbook Case

It looked like it might work for my ink cubes, so I used a 50% off coupon and bought it.  It worked perfectly; it also holds the old Papertrey ink pads:

I like that the slim case holds the ink cubes and pads in place when it is closed.  No digging through a box or drawer to find the color I am looking for.  And I can easily grab the case and take it with me when I go to a crop. 

I store the case on a shelf in one of my Jet Max cubes within reach so I can easily grab it when I need it.  I can easily flip it to store the inks upside down or to find the color I need.

This has been a very handy way to store and use my Papertrey ink cubes/pads and Memento dew drops.

Now if I can find a practical way to store all my other inks: TH distress inks, Colorbox pigment inks, Jenni Bowlin dye inks, A Muse pigment inks, etc., I will be thrilled.  For now they are stored in drawers and not so easy to access since the drawers are stuffed full and I have to dig around to find the ones I need at the time.  I'll have to work on that in 2012.

Thanks for stopping by!
