Last week I came across as awesome item using foam core. I have a small craft room in my house and try to use any space I can. I had been using a couple rubbermaid bins to store my inkpads which made it impossible to really see what I really had. I was bloghopping and saw this and couldn't wait to build it. So I ran to the Dollar Tree (my second favorite store next to Big Lots. That's another story in itself.) and bought 2 pieces of foam core for $1 a piece, downloaded the pdf file and proceeded to cut out my patterns. A small family joke - I am not allowed to use knives. Ha ha. My DH, who by the way is very handy with knives, offered to cut it out for me. I then took all my pieces and built my ink pad holder. It turned out awesome. I was a bit apprehensive of how strong it would be, but to my surprise it is absolutely sturdy. I had filled it and then had to move it. I was a bit scared, but it really is sturdy. You can visit Rebel Inker and download her pdf file. All she asks is to please not use this pdf file to make and resell. I don't know why my picture turned out so blurry, but here is is.

was not able to post on Thursday. Maybe I can get something uploaded
this weekend, but I will be back with something exciting next week.
While I was gone though I did win something over at
http://kandrewdesigns.blogspot.com. She had an awesome tutorial on
how to make utee/leaves and butterflies. They are so awesome. Check
out her blog. Infact, today she has a wonderful FREE svg/doodle file.
So much fun.
See you next week, if not sooner.
