First, we want to cut our cardboard, and measure to see if it can fit in your paint caddy, or any other place you will be storing them.

Once you have them the right size, take your tinfoil and pull out a strip of it, long enough to cover the cardboard.

Fold up all the edges around your cardboard strip, and tape to secure. I found that the Washi take was perfect and really made it a tight seal.

Once you have your first layer on, repeat that process again with another layer. You can add two or three layers of tinfoil, this will create easy cleanup and make your cardboard paint pallet more sturdy, and if the tinfoil gets a tear in it, there are a few layers underneath.

We use the Kallax shelves from IKEA, and this year we are stacking three high, together with a bookshelf and our kid’s drawers in our school room to help with storage for our art time learning this year.
