Today I have a little Tool Time segment for you on sponge organization. I gave up along time ago trying to keep a sponge for each color of ink I have, until I seen this cute and quick idea. I am not sure who to give credit to since I have heard this idea from a few different sources. But it is such a good idea I thought I would try it and share it with you.
Stampin’ Up! Sponges, Item #101610 – cut into wedges
Stampin’ Up! Round Tab Punch, Item #108340
A scrap of each color of card stock that matches your ink colors. If you don’t have colored card stock to match your ink colors, smear ink on white card stock.
Stampin’ Up has card stock that matches all of their ink colors, so using the Stampin’ Up! tab punch, punched one tab out of each color card stock that I have in ink. Pardon me, but I have them all, lol. By the way, so should you. I know I am an enabler, I hear that often.
Next fold the tab over a wedge of sponge and staple it. The colored tab not only lets you quickly identify the ink color that the sponge is designated for, but also gives you something to hold onto when sponging.
I have this plastic container that has dividers in it. I found it to be perfect to store my sponges.
This little project only took me about 30 minutes to throw together and will hopefully save me a bit of time and money.
I hope you enjoyed this little Tool Time segment. Let me hear from you in the comments section if you have great craft organization tips to share.
May your day be filled with lots of belly laughs.
