Creative Tuesday : Organizing Blending Foam

I've had a hard time trying to keep my blending foam organized so I'd be sure to use the same foam for the same ink color.  I've been tempted to buy a blending tool handle for each color, but have a hard time justifying the cost.  I'm using this idea that's working for me so far.

I cut a small piece of the male end of velcro and stuck it to the underside of my ink pads.  The "male end" velcro will hold the "female end" of the blending foam.  In this way, the foam stays with the ink pad it is used with.

When you want to use the foam piece, simply peel it off the ink pad and add it to your blending tool.

The only downside to this method is that the ink pads can't be stacked tight because of the foam sitting in the bottom.  I can still stack them, just not tightly, in a drawer.  This little disadvantage doesn't outweigh the convenience of having the correct foam piece handy however!

Have a very Creative Tuesday!  Don't forget to add your blog to the post below in the comments!
