How to Open Close to My Heart Exclusive Ink Pads

Happy Sunday, everyone!



I happened to come across some discussion this week about what the trick was to opening our Close to My Heart Exclusive Ink Pads.  Let me tell you, I had the SAME problem when I first opened one attempted to pry one open almost a year ago.  I ended up with ink all over myself!  All I wanted was for someone to pleeeease show me how.  Well, now that I have some experience under my belt, I don't feel quite as flustered anymore and can generally get them open without inking myself instead of the paper!  I decided to make a quick video tutorial to show you how I open them just in case you find yourself in the same boat I was in back then.  Hope this helps!  :)



Well, I can assure you that these ink pads are well worth the frustration of learning to open them at first.  I love how they swivel and nest inside the lid while you are using them saving some valuable workspace.  That swivel feature also allows the ink pad to be stored upside-down so that the ink sits right near the surface of the pad when you are ready to use it!  Genius!  Finally, I realized that because they close so snugly, they stay nice and juicy for a long time.  If you find yourself needing extra help to get them open, don't hesitate to contact me, or your own CTMH Independent consultant if you already have one.  :)

  1. Omg. Great idea. This video is def needed. I had a new downline ask me the same thing. She said she tried to open her ink pad and it flew across the room! Thanks,

    1. I just laughed out loud when I read that! I can totally understand though! I dropped one in my lap trying to open one once...glad I had some old jammies on! You are totally welcome--can't imagine why I haven't thought to make a video to demonstrate it sooner.

  2. Another great video Amie, a tip I received when I started was to take a nail file and rub it on the side that has the little lip. It just wears it down so it's easier to open. It has worked great on my ink pads.
