Sponge Organizing

You know those projects that you've seen and want to do yourself but when it comes to actually doing seems to fall through the cracks of life? Well, this is one of those projects.

I've seen this done and have wanted to do this for a while and finally got around to doing it.

Supplies (pictured above):
  • Round Tab Punch (Stampin' Up! #119864 $16.95)

  • Craft & Rubber Scissors (Stampin' Up! #103179 $19.95)

  • Stamping Sponges--2 packs (Stampin' Up! #101610 $3.50 each)

  • Stapler

  • Cardstock in every color (exept for Whisper White and Very Vanilla)

  • Instructions:
  • Cut each sponge in half, cut the halves in half, and then the quarters in half so you have 8 slices per full sponge.

  • Punch 1 round tab out of each color of cardstock.

  • Fold tabs in half.

  • Write color name on each tab.

  • Fold tab over the smaller, pointed end of the slice and staple it onto the sponge toward the bottom of the tab.

  • VOILA!!! All Organized for the next time you want to sponge your projects; you'll have just the right sponge. :)
    One last thing I wanted to share...

    This is Kazia's card she made to give to her Nana for watching her while I was at the Stampin' Up! Convention. I thought it turned out rather cute. I was using my butterfly wings embosslit and Kazia used the left over butterflies, some ribbon from my scrap bucket, and a couple pearls.
    She made this all by herself and even used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get the lettering straight. She made this momma proud! :) I'm so excited that I'll have someone in my immediate family to share my passion with seeing as my mom and sister could care less about paper crafting.
