I use those as well for storing my mini pigment pads.

I ordered this - which may or may not do the trick, or may temporarily. But if not, it can be used for something else or even for carting markers or other stuff to workshops. For less than $5.00 and free Prime shipping, made sense.

I think your link may be broken - it doesn't go to Amazon...

I just tapped the link and was taken right to the page. But it's the ADVANTUS Super Stacker Pencil Box, 8.25 x 1.5 x 4 Inches, Clear, 1 Box (40309).

That's really weird - no matter how many times I try it, I end up on something like "connexity.rd" or something, with a totally blank page. I have some of those boxes under the "Really Useful Box" banner, and they ended up not working for me. Most of my "cubes" are DIY, though, so they're not the standard size...

It's like it's getting stuck for you, since for a split second - almost can't catch it because it's so fast - I see a URL that has "connexity.rd" and "redirect" something-or-other before it gets to Amazon. I wonder why.

Here's a try through smile.amazon, but if it doesn't work and want to see it, you could copy and paste from post 44 in Amazon's search box since I copied the name from that page.

That's what I did (cut and paste), so I could comment on your box in my last post, lol. Thanks for giving me another option, though!

Okay now you can all jump on me. lol

I agree with you.

Sue, you make your own ink cubes? Inquiring minds...

Yes, I do... I've posted this before and people may be getting sick of seeing it, but here it is again, since you've asked: random.on purpose.: Because I need more...

I use the larger boxes referred to in the post, now, instead of the smaller ones. They are housed in a three-drawer desktop Sterilite unit. I made a set of the smaller ones for my daughter that fit perfectly in those embroidery thread storage boxes...

Great idea for using re-inkers!

Now that is cool aka hot! Bonus: it's not just organizing; it's a craft project in and of itself. If that makes sense.

Thanks for explaining.

Would the Tim Holtz tins work for AlteNew mini ink pads?

I keep my [SU] ink pads in an unfinished wooden crate I picked up at HobLob years ago...lightweight cardboard (think old cards or cereal boxes) create dividers between the stacks... Stand it on the long side,.it is the perfect depth! And easy to transport, plus the side/top edge gives me another 'layer' of storage (I usually have a 'critter' statue for a bit of "whimsy" up there). HTH!

I liked your idea and tried it since I had a wood box/crate type thing from Michaels. While it was great in concept, mine was tilted for some reason (even though the edges were flat) so the ink pads would spill out no matter how gently I pulled one out for use...and I was so proud of myself for saving money!! After trying many tweaks, nothing worked so I ordered the Slim Stamp N Storage 72 slot ink pad storage and I LOVE it! So nice to see all my inks...Memento, Hero Arts and Papertrey in slots and looking so pretty. I also have one Porta Ink dual ink pad holder on a swivel base for all my distress inks and a few random others...so now my inks are all within easy reach!!
