Mini Distress Ink Pad Holder

I thought I would share with you a project that I've been working on, one I also thought that I had messed up too. Just before Christmas I found this wonderful storage box for Mini Distress Ink Pads, I found it on the Candy Box Crafts website. So when it arrived I looked through my 12x12 paper pads and decided to use one of my precious Graphic 45 pads. The one I chose was Artisan Style. I merrily started drawing around measuring and cutting out the papers and after sticking on the centre piece (the handle), I realised that the gap in the trays was quite tight in fact so tight that the tray would not slide down the handle. So at this stage I set it to one side hoping that once it was dry the tray would fit, but that did not happen. I was gutted needless to say, but hubby came to the rescue and found a thin file in his workshop and filed away some of the centre gap so I could now get the trays to fit.



I have now finished and am so pleased with the overall look now . The top three trays fit all 60 of the ink pads and the bottom tray which is slightly deeper has room to store blending tool in.


The knobs were some that I had bought for another project but went with this so well and it makes it easier to get the lid off.


Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
