Father's Day and More Organization Tips

The "Man of the Hour" stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps is one of my favorites!

I actually used my glue gun for the button/ribbon embellishment! I'm scared to death of glue guns but I couldn't see any way around it. I have the cordless Imaginisce one and it wasn't too bad at all! ;)

I'm entering this into Simon Say's Stamp masculine challenge as well as CAS(E) This Sketch. I kind of flipped the sketch.

And the inside (a rare consideration for me):

I thought I'd share another couple of crafty org tips.

I used PTI's Desktop File Card dies to organize my ink blending foams:

I inked each color and used a tiny piece of Velcro to adhere each roam.

To organize my buttons, I use IKEA plastic organizers (discontinued?). I don't need a ton of spice jars taking up space!

Each divider is adhered to the bottom using dimensional adhesive--a tip suggested by my mom to keep the buttons from moving between sections.

And, of course, no organizing project is complete without labels!

Thanks for peeking!
