How do you store your reinkers?

Mine are stuffed into two different plastic bags and stuffed onto a shelf.

Classy, eh?

I recently 'fixed' a box for my distress inks and I'm using the same for my re-inkers. I've been pretty satisfied with my solution, maybe it can work for you too.

Inks storage solution

If you come up with another solution I hope you'll share it with us. I'm always looking for a better mouse trap.

Marshia-curious if your picture is actually alcohol inks upside down? I have had a 2 AI bottles leak as they where loose in a similar container. I think it is a bottle issue so I have isolated those in a baggie but if yours are upside down that gives me more confidence it was an isolated incident.

I use the same containers for my doubled tip markers.

Did I miss what actual container that is? I do like your system, Marshia.

I think I might be better off with something I can stack, due to my small area where I can store stuff. But just about anything has to be better than what I am doing now, lol. I wonder if some of those Christmas storage boxoes for ornaments, might work but they are probably too big.

Jan, Those are alcohol inks (ais)upside down and if you squint you can see 3 or 4 re-inkers in the back of the box in picture two. The re-inkers are right side up just because they show the color so I didn't have to label as I did the ais.

Heidi, The containers are Snapware. I've seen them in Target and Walmart for sure and even some grocery stores carry them. I've updated my earlier project to show the other ways I've used these containers in my craft area. They do come in various depths, I'm just using what I have on hand. And notice that they snap together for traveling. Very handy!
Added 2 more pics here

And as a side note...These are stacked together in my fridge all summer long storing sandwich fixin's. Onion slices, tomatoes, lettuce, sandwich meats, etc. One grab + mayo and I'm more than half way to a "sammy". LOL

I mostly have Distress re-inkers with a handful of others. I found a old-looking wooden box at a garage sale and thought it was very much TH brand appropriate!

It's on a shelf.

I have all my reinkers in small boxes. I just recently punched out small white circles and glued them to the tops of the bottles to see the colors easier. Now that is having a little too much time or the OCD got the better of me.

Thanks for continuing to post your ideas. I didn't see a box that would work at target. But I will keep looking. That would be great to find a used box for a deal!

Yup, I too have searched and I can't find a stackable box that is tall enough to hold the distress paints and reinkers. I am now going to re-purpose a rectangle tin lunchbox. The box (7x8"will hold 30 bottles with the dividers in place if I calculated correctly. I also have a larger tin box (approx 8x9)which was filled with Christmas cookies when I purchased it. It can be also be upcycled if more space is needed.
