Clear Make Up Caddy Storage

Here's how I store my:

embossing ink pad, refill & embossing powders,
Martha Stewart glue pad, refill & 
pearl powder
glitter glue
and the like

I use a clear make up caddy that I purchased @
The Salvation Army Thrift Store
for $2.00. 

I love how everything is visible and I can see the item I need to grab before I even open the box.

It has plenty of room, as you can see I have a ton stored in it and there is still some wiggle room for more.

It would also be fab for containers of eyelets, grommets, loose rhinestones, small flower embellishments plus other bling & embellishments etc.

This make up caddy would make a fab ink holder too.  I will have to look for another one for my yet to buy Tim Holtz distress ink pads, inks, tools foam/cotton pads etc.  Funny I never thought of using it for ink pads untill I wrote this post.   LOL

I love how when you

'think outside the box'

(no pun intended), something intended for one purpose can come in so handy for a new use.   : )

How do you store your embossing powders, inks and the like?

How I store my MS scoreboard

I love my Martha Stewart scoreboard! 

I love that has integrals every 1/8 inch, has a handy envelope maker designed to be stored on the underside, has storage for her slim stylus, plus room for more tools and last but not least it's white.  LOL

I keep my MS scoreboard in a handy square serving tray that I purchased from a yard sale.  I know these are readily available most home decor places and this is the perfect time of year to be scouting for one for yourself if you want to use my storage idea too.

A handy trimmer can be stored in the tray too and removed when you need room to score paper.

I have room along the side to store several MS punches and also an often used corner punch.  It actualy squeezes in the end of the MS punches.  I also keep a circle punch here @ all times too as I use it often. 

In the compartment for storing the MS scoring tool aka bone folder I also store my double ended embossing stylus to use for some projects like thicker cardstock.  I also keep a hand dandy popsicle stick in this spot too for rub-ons.  You will find room here for other little tools too.  I'm sure I will pop some more in after writing this post too!  LOL

Under the scoreboard I keep sheets of scrap 81/2 x 11 paper to pull out for embossing or to protect a surface while stamping or spraying.  You could also store a craft mat providing it doesn't move the board around while in use (or take it out when using if it does).  I can the scrap paper or craft mat right on top of the score board if I like.

Hope this gives you an idea for storage.  : )

I love to hear from you when you like a post and would love to hear from you if you plan to store your scoreboard in the same fashion or similar.
