Several of y’all asked me how I keep the pans for my Art Toolkit Palettes organized so I thought I’d share. True confession: I used to keep them in a drawer and they’d get all jumbled up and messy. Then one day I had the idea to use magnetic sheets with clear plastic pockets meant for storing craft dies and they work great! (See below for all the details + links).
I used to write on the pans with a Sharpie but it would rub off over time, darn! Then I had the idea to use labels and it works like a charm!
I like to switch up my colors with the seasons and depending on locations, so I’m thinking of setting up several of these.
- Avery 5414 Multi-Use Labels — Tip: cut the labels in half for the smaller pans.
- Magnetic sheets with clear pockets — I use some from Ellen Hutson die cuts packaging (move the dies into the matching stamp packaging). Similar on Amazon here and here. (I have not personally used these since I have plenty from Ellen Hutson).
- I use a Sharpie or Copic Mutiliner .1 to write on the labels — just make sure it’s waterproof. 🙂 I like the .1 size so I can keep my writing small.
See it all in action!
Hope this helps someone and let me know if you have any questions!
