Default Distress Ink Pad Organizer-made for only $5!

I have created a Distress ink pad holder made out of foam board. This cost me approx $5. I struggled to find one that I liked for a decent price so I created my own. Here is a link to my youtube tutorial on how to make it.

I, too, have made (4) custom sized foam core ink holders that have lasted over 15 years each and are still used constantly. There are also YouTube videos illustrating many other different construction methods so pick what appeals to you.

The only tip that I'd like to offer is to white-glue 2 foam core sheets together for the outer "box"/frame for strength. Then, *make sure your frames' corners are squared up* when gluing the 4 pieces of the frame together.

Fiddely advice? Yes. But when fitting the inner pieces together, you'll be a happy camper. And the money you saved can go for Tim's brand new colors!
