I am getting excited to attend my first IAMPETH convention. I normally just keep my nibs in the little bags and envelopes they arrive in from Paper and Ink Arts and John Neal Bookseller, but I thought I better get a little more organized for the convention.
I had read about using Altoids' tins for nib storage, and since I can never seem to throw away an Altoids' tin, I thought I should give it a try. As suggested at Cyberscribes, I lined the inside top and bottom of the tin with those thin, little business card magnets that people and businesses use for advertising. Then, using the metal embossing tools I bought from Magdalena at MercArt, I debossed and embossed the name of the nib manufacturer on metal tape from the hardware store. Then I trimmed the tape and stuck it to the top of the tin. Easy, peasy.
