Who Doesn't Love Tim?

Like most people I know from the art world, we love Tim Holtz products and I have been adding to my supplies on a regular basis.   I now have too many Distress ink pads to leave just laying on my work space and have recycled a Christmas themed gift box that a bottle of wine came in.  I think I bought the box at the Goodwill for less than a dollar some months back and it just happened to be the perfect size to hold the ink pads. 

I used lots of Tim's other papers, inks, and tissue tape when creating the box and I have a bunch of vintage rip-off tickets that I used on the inside edge of the front cover.  I think they fit in will with the overall theme.  There are two holes in the top that used to have a rope going through them to use as a handle, but I have asked my husband to put in a couple of long screws that will stick up through the top that I can use to hold my tissue tape rolls.  This should help to clean up part of my workbench.

Your Distress Pad storage box is really great looking and I like the verticle aspect, (smaller footprint)! Beautiful! If you are good with a computer, and you must be to have a blog, you can download the color names at Ranger.com. I just use white stickers cut the the size of the pad case edge, write or rubber stamp the color name, and then swipe the color over it and seal with a clear glue. Makes getting the color pad you want much easier, but you still have to lift the ones on top of it off to get it out. I'm trying to make something like you did, but with a shelf for each pad... not going so well : (
