Creative Storage for Your Copic Markers

Good morning everyone! Today’s post is courtesy of our Design Team Member Dionne Carter. Dionne is AMAZING, she teaches Cricut Classes at her local scrapbooking store and creates beautiful art work in almost every possible crafting venue. You can see more of her work at http://deezcreativedesigns.blogspot.com/ . Without further ado, here’s Dee’s creative way to keep your Copics clean and organized.

Hello Everyone,
I wanted to share with you my Copic marker storage system .  Granted it’s not rocket science, but how you store them can make your life easier or harder.  It seems like crafters are always looking for a new, better way to store all their prized possessions.  I have looked at several different ways to store my markers and I am convinced that this is the best way for me.  This ideal could also work for other markers like Promarkers or Prismas, depending on the height, and you may have to alter a bit. This method expands very well as your collection gets bigger.  Here is a pic of my markers and you’ll see why I needed a good way to store them.  I also told myself, if you spread them out people will see it’s really not that many markers.(Who was I trying to kid)

So here it is.  I use a makeup storage Caboodle(normally found in makup section of stores like Walmart, Target, Cosco) medium sized and I add plastic canvas inserts.  You don’t have to add the inserts but if you don’t, your markers fall all over the place.(not a good ideal)  I can transport my markers without any problem and I can lock it up so no little fingers can get to them.  This unit can also store ink refills with your markers.  Take a look.

So everyone let me know what you think.  Enjoy, and Craft On.

Thanks Dee! To see Dee’s template for the inserts, click the following link: deetemplate

    Where did you get the plastic inserts? This seems to be one of the best ways (and least expensive) way to store them.
