Chipboard Distress Ink Storage Unit

I just got my distress inks and decided to make a fabulous storage unit.

I cut, sanded and distress inked the crap out of it. Attached a couple of hinges and BAM!
there you have it.
If you need some advice on how to cut it or assemble it jut ask.

I had to use a Deep cut blade and housing with a pressure of 330 points 7 times to cut through a 1.5 mm thick chipboard. It got the best of the blade but it was totally worth it.
I'm making a new piece though to contain all 48 colors (that I'm getting next week by the way)
You can Always download the color chart from Ranger.com.

  1. Very awesome work. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. i jsut found your site and became a follower. This box is awesome. I am going to try it. I have lots of Ranger Inks too. Love your colors.

  3. I soo want to try this! I only have a few distress inks but love them. Maybe if I make the holder I'll be able to fill one slot a month. Thanks again. You totally blow me away!

  4. This looks awesome Omar. I'm adding it to my list of projects I have to make!! Thanks for all the files you share freely! <3

  5. Omar, where did you get the chipboard?

  6. what size and how many sheets of chipboard does it take for one section (you have three)?

  7. I love the Distress Ink holder - do you have measurements?? I'm ruler-challenged1

  8. I wish I'd seen this post sooner! I cut the pieces for the distress ink bag on my maker with a double cut and it didn't go through, so I ended up cutting the rest of the way by hand (ouch). It was still totally worth it, but wish I'd known seven was the magic number :) Can't wait for the knife blade to come out!

  9. Wow! Beautiful !! I have been looking for MONTHS for cut files like these and FINALLY HERE YOU ARE! :) And free?!?! <3 <3!! LOVE!

  10. Are these files still available? I'd love to make it, but the download button doesn't work. Thanks!
