Hello, G45ers!

  We are excited to share a DIY Ink Pad Storage Box Tutorial today.  Below you will find a video tutorial, so you too can create your own storage container using Chipboard Sheets and some decorative papers.  Maria Smeshkova handcrafting this project in celebration of our #G45Box - January Challenge using our new and fabulous Life’s a Journey paper collection.  We encourage you to grab some chipboard and play along.  



DIY Ink Pad Storage - #G45Box

By Maria Smeshkova


 “Hi everyone! I made an ink pad storage for the #G45Box challenge this month. It’s easy to keep my ink pads in such way.


Graphic 45 12x12 chipboard sheets are perfect for horizontal septums.

My storage box has some space on top for blending tools and other stuff.




To decorate the box I chose Life's a Journey 12x12 Patterns & Solids Pad and added some Life's a Journey Die-cuts.



It’s a perfect solution for keeping ink pads!” ~Maria
