Thought I would share a little tip for you today on how I organize and store my Distress Stains.
Now that I have "collected" them all, I wanted to organize them in a way that made them easy to find when I am creating. I started by filling in my handy downloadable chart from Ranger, and as I was doing this I made a swatch of stain on a blank piece of cardstock.
When I was done, I punched out all the swatches with a 5/8" circle punch and adhered it to the top of the bottle with some Glossy Accents. This makes each color super easy to find if you are storing them in a container.
Now where to put all these bottles? I like to have all of my supplies close to me when I am working, but already have enough stuff on top of my table. I use these little rolling carts and pull them out while I am working and just put them underneath the desk when I am done. I got the idea for this from Heather's blog a while ago. The contents of these carts change often, but they allow me to use whatever I am loving right now.
To store the stains I found these small galvanized metal containers at Michael's in the floral section. I like these because they are lined with a plastic liner (which gives me peace of mind in case of a leak).
Hope you enjoyed this storage tip. I am in the process of finishing up my organization and storage of my clear and cling stamps which I plan to share soon. Are there any other supplies that you have a hard time organizing and storing? Let me know!
