OOOOO... feelin the Feng Shui? I know I am while trying to REorganize all my stuff in the new place! You'd think expanding a craft space from a closet to an entire room would be easy... HAHAHAHAHAHA! But then again, I've always been a little horizontally challenged, so of course I went vertical.... AGAIN!!!
A while back I posted an amazing storage solution for my Copic markers in a carrying case that allowed them to be visible AND mobile. Since that post I've talked to a couple of fellow Copic lovers like myself who were also looking for storage that allowed them to see the tips of their markers at a glance, but would still be mobile, organized and not take up precious work space.
I'VE GOT IT!!! I found THE CUTEST little metal silverware/drink caddy (even monogrammed with my initial and just so happened to match my Cricut green... HELLLLOOOO!) with nifty carrying handles on the side. I used some large "S" hooks that I got from IKEA and hung it on my magnetic pegboard (also from IKEA) that I have attached to my wall. I currently have 120 markers and there's room in this caddy for about 30+/- more. I also have only Sketch Copics, so if there is someone out there looking to store the complete set of Ciao Copics, this should fit the bill nicely.
With this storage solution, the marker tips are visible, they are mobile (the caddy slips right off the "S" hooks easily), they are off your work surface, on the wall and finally they are organized since the metal caddy has a 6-compartment metal divider.... nice!!! You can click on the pic to enlarge and see the metal dividers more easily.
I hope this tip helps someone out. Now I have to put all my Copics BACK into their Creative cases. See what I do for you guys!?! LOL! To check out my original Copic storage idea (and the storage that I use), click HERE.
