In my Stamper’s Dozen blog hop post on Sunday, I talked about how I label my sponges… so I decided to show y’all.

First of all, here are the labels that I use.

(I had a really inky Blackberry Bliss sponge so I tried to get rid of some of the ink on my extra labels!)

I’m not sure where the original file came from but I downloaded it a couple years ago and just change it as the new In Colors come out.

Here is how I use them on the sponges.

I use the now retired SU mini stapler to attach the labels to the sponges. I know you can find other mini staplers in office supply stores and craft stores. The labels are not sticky enough to stick to the sponges without it. Two staples keep it securely in place.

I always print several copies of the label sheets. I use them to label all sorts of things. I do write on the sheet of labels what it is for, then when I need to label something, I will have the label I need for that item.

I also use them on my daubers…

Trust me, you will want sheets of these around because the time to prepare for color tool labeling is before you actually need them. It’s always hard to go back and try to figure out what the color is supposed to be.

Other uses are…

  • Color Coach (I use clear labels for this)
  • Aquapainters
  • Containers of colored silicon for shaker cards
  • Containers of colored embossing paste
  • Cardstock organization
  • Spritzers
  • And many more…

I use AVERY 5167 Return Address labels. They will work on any brand label that is compatible with those.

And, here is the file so that you can print your own.

Well, that is how I label my sponges. Thanks for asking and I hope I have inspired you to go label all your color tools everywhere!

Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!

🙂 Joanne
