As we head in to the New Year I always like to do a bit of purging and organizing in my craft room. This past year I moved my ink pads into a small cabinet on my desk and I needed to be able to see the colors from the side.
Here's my solution, and I love it!
First I grabbed some small avery labels, these came 80 to a sheet which was great because I sacrificed one label around the color I was trying to make. Still I was able to make a label for all 24 colors of the TSOL color palette with one sheet. I didn't make a white Label, since the Powdered Sugar lid is clear.
I opened the lid to each ink pad and swiped it across the labels. Some colors only needed one swipe, others (the lighter ones) took a couple swipes.
So you don't have any labels on hand? No problem a sheet of copy paper and a sheet of Sizzix Adhesive will work great. Just swipe the ink, apply the adhesive and trim a rectangle with scissors.
Apply the labels to the edge of your ink pads with the perfect swatch of exactly what the ink looks like!
