      If you have or use distress inks a lot, you probably have an ink blending tool. And if you are anything like me (come on, I know you are) you have MULTIPLE ones. Do you have Original ones or home made ones? And how do you store them?

        I have the original and the new mini ones. I am loving the mini ones.

        I keep my tools in the same basket with my inks. I keep the square pads in the box keeper you did a tutorial on a few years ago for NSD. I love it and get so many comments on it when I got to a crop.

          That is awesome Kim! It was a fun tut, wasn't it?!
          I do have 2 of the mini's but haven't used them that much.
          I'm still in love with the rectangle ones. But if going to a crop, I think I rather would bring the mini's.

            I have all TH ink blending tools, the big and mini ones. Love them. I usually store the pads in a small ziplock baggie with the ink pad of the same color. I don't own all of the colors of ink, just the ones I usually use.

              It was a fun tut. i think you should bring it back for all the newbies.

                I just have the square ones and I keep them on my craft cart which I wheel out to my kitchen table to do layouts because my craft room is still to messy, I am trying to get organized (taking forever)

                  I want to see the box keeper tutorial! I copied Timmy and found a couple of vintage stamp holders in antique stores, but they're taking up a lot of space. Please show us your secret, Paulien.

                        Donna these are the blending tools that we use:

                          I use both of the blending tools but I am beginning to like the mini better

                            I don't have any minis! Oh I need a couple of those!

                            I use the originals and I have a stamp holder for them. I have 6 because that is how many slots I have on the little rack.

                                Like I said, I have a couple of the originals, but found them quit expensive. So I set my creative mind at work and came up with these:
                                IMG_3120m_zpsgavm4wom.jpg

                                I have 1 for every color Distress ink and have them hanging on my wall. Kees made this rack for me, which I'm very happy with. It is hanging above my work station:

                                As for storage my Distress inks: I have them in a ArtBin:

                                I made some deviders in it to keep them for shuffling around. Here's a pic on how easy it is to store them when the box is closed.

                                  To come back at the Blending Foam Storage Binder, which Kim mentioned… I've been spending 2 hours in the forum to search for the Original post, but for the life of me… I can't find the post. Soooooooooooo
                                  Here's a link to my blog post from then:
                                  http://paulienvandenbosch.blogspot.nl/2012/02/what-fun-day-we-had.html

                                  And here's a link to the Youtube video I made on it:
                                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glAXLdjdZYs

                                  Hope this is handy. Of course, because of the new releases of Distress inks, the measurements need to be adjusted.
