I was at Michaels craft store the other day and they were having a great sale on small square ink pads, and well, I already had a few before that, so I decided I would stock up on some of the fall colors though because the available colors always change. Once I got home, I didn't really have a home for them, so I decided to make them a home.
I made this cute armoire which is such a great size for these stamp pads! It fits four perfectly on the bottom and can go 3 layers high. For the other drawer I had some Dew Drop ink pads and put those in there and again they fit great, 6 on the bottom and up to 3 layers high.
I used SVG Cuts Amelie's Accessories Kit. I would suggest watching the assembly video if you attempt to make it though, I totall would have messed up if I didn't.
So, I love purple, therefore the color scheme :)
I was so happy the fit perfectly! I did increase the size of the file, just to the largest I could on my mat.
This is really sturdy too, and I will probably put some foam on the bottom so that I don't have to hold it everytime I go to open it. I just love that I didn't have to buy another piece of furniture, and I pretty much felt like a carpenter.
There was also glitter glue on sale, so...I found a home for them too...using a Godiva chocolate box.
I liked the brown color of the box, but just added some paper to cover the original contents, and ta-dah!
Thanks for looking! Hope this inspires you to make your own storage out of, well anything!
I live in Florida and I am an artist/scrapbooker/cardmaker/crafter...basically I love making things, especially creative fun sparkly things. I come from a hefty family of 11, my mom and dad, 7 sisters and baby brother. All but 1 of us were born in Germany, and I spent a total of 11 years there growing up. I know what you're thinking...military family, but no, my dad worked as an electrical engineer for the Government and they had him stationed over there several different times. While I was in Germany I got the chance to tour some near by sites such as Paris, Amsterdam, The Czech Republic, London and The Neuschwanstein Castle as well as Bavaria and tons of German towns. I am blessed to have had such a cultural life and now that I have been in America for 14 years (We moved to Oklahoma when I was 15) I can really appreciate the convience that this country offers. I love discovering other blogsites, so if you stop by my blog drop me a comment with your blog link and I'll be sure to check out your page.
