Made my own ink daubers

Pinterest, how I love thee! This idea is so simple, I literally smacked my forehead when I read it. I've had the stuff to make these forever and it just never clicked with me till I saw it done. Duh! 

I had bought this set of 3 mini daubers with the idea that I would get more of them if I couldn't figure out how to make my own after seeing them in person. Before I even had a chance to think about it, I find this pinterest idea. So, one pack of 32 Dollar Store make up sponges already in my stash....
...and a chunk of PVC pipe from the hub's scrap bin in the shop later and VOILA!!!!!
But I couldn't just leave them like that, oh my heck, no! Had the purtty 'em up and what better to do the job than PINK acrylic enamel paint {by FolkArt}, also from my stash. Psshhttt! Cutest daubers on the block.

  7. I just use the cosmetic wedges on their own. This would be an inexpensive solution for keeping my fingers clean(er)!

  9. What are the lids, they look like they make things stay cleaner in a drawer with them on.
