Embossing Paste Organiser Tutorial

When I showed my Embossing Paste Organiser last Sunday several people asked for a tutorial.  If you missed last weeks post click here.

I didn’t think about a tutorial when I made this so I only scribbled down some of the measurements. It’s taken me a while to work out all of the measurements and I remade the tray, post-it-notes holder and mask holder because it’s better to see a photo than explain how to make it.

Craftroom Organisation – Embossing Paste Organiser

Thank you for joining me today for the 4th part of my Craftroom Organisation series.  You may have noticed by now that I’m really enjoying making my own storage solutions.

After making the holder for my 6″ DSP and Memories & More cards I needed something that would store everything I need when using my embossing paste.
