How to Store Distress Inks
A place for everything & everything in it’s place 🎉

I’ve struggled for a while on how to store my Distress Inks. 🤔 I’m one of those that likes everything behind closed doors, but at the same time easily accessible, so that presented a wee bit of a challenge when it came to the inkpads.
I've had an IKEA Kallax/Expedit in my craft room for years. I’ve added doors or drawers to almost all of the cubes to help keep things looking neat & tidy.
When my friend Vicki Boutin talked about the Kvissle Letter Tray from IKEA in one of her videos, I thought it just might be the solution I was looking for to store my Distress Inks.
Because I had a door on the cube where I wanted to store the tray, the door had to come out to slide the tray in. Once it was placed in the cube, door back on :)
Inks are stored in ROYGBIV order on each of the pull out trays.
I downloaded & printed the Distress Color Palette Label Sheet from the Ranger website & continue to mark off the colors I have.
I used washi tape to adhere an 8.5x11 page protector to the inside of the door & inserted the sheet, that way I always have it where I need it, whether I'm trying to see what colors I have or to match a color for a project I'm working on.
Next step? Swatch each of my inks!
