Organization 101: Inkssentials Craft Spinner

July 12th, 2010

 
With all the fabulous new releases that will be available at CHA Summer (just a few short weeks away!), perhaps you are finding yourself a little bit stressed? "How can I possibly find room in my crafting space for even MORE amazing Ranger products?"

Never fear! We are here to help you organize your current stash of stuff to make room for all of the new goodies we'll be coming out with!

One way to organize your crafting products is to make use of vertical space. And to help you accomplish this, we strongly suggest using…

Spinner1
…the Inkssentials Craft Spinner!

With this handy-dandy organizer you can keep 8 of your Ink Blending Tools or Alcohol Ink Applicators close at hand, and nice and neat.  You can even use Adirondack Paint Dabbers to color-code the handles so that you always use your red Ink Blending Tool on a red ink pad, etc. Never have a contaminated ink pad again!

But did you know that you can stack multiple Craft Spinners to save even more space on your work surface??

Our customer service department frequently receives calls from customers who want to know: "Why is there an extra piece in my Craft Spinner box?"

Don't throw it away!  This piece is the key to stacking your Craft Spinners!

Check this out:

Spinner5
Unscrew the "Standard" topper on your Craft Spinner, and replace it with the extra rod:

Then take a second Craft Spinner and place it right on top!  (Don't forget to replace the topper!)

Spinner7
Voila!

But why stop there? Why not have THREE tiers of craft tools?

Spinner8
Ta-da! Yep, you can even use the Craft Spinner to hold your Adirondack Paint Dabbers. But that's not all: try using your Craft Spinner to organize your Stickles, re-inkers, Alcohol Inks and more. The sky's the limit!

Well, ok, there is one limit that you should consider: we recommend going no higher than 3 tiers of spinners for stability's sake. But this is pretty cool, right? Think of all the space you just saved on your work surface by building upward!

And as an added bonus, you can even use the leftover toppers as fun embellishments on your craft projects:
