Ummmm - chuck it out and buy a new one?

Hi Trish, I would try to carefully drill 4 holes at the 4 corners of the plastic recipient and the 4 corners of the inkpad and fix the pad with brads to the plastic recipient... or maybe you could make two cardstock pockets of 1/2", glue the down on the plastic recipient at each small edge and insert the inkpad on both sides... Hope you find a solution :-)

I hate it when this happens! I usually just toss it and buy another.

Excuse that last comment ... Joe has probably never used an ink pad, LOL ... I was still signed on to DH account from updating his blog the other day. Sorry 'bout that... anyway, I would just toss it and start over.

I have been using Zip Dry for my cat's eye so maybe you can try it fofr this too. It not perfect but you have to make sure you leave it to dry properly before you use it or it will just fall off again.

Have you tried hot glue? I haven't had this problem, but I know it fixes everything else I break LOL!!! another idea is to drill/ punch a little holes in the bottom of the base and secure the pad down with fine fishing line????
