Are you constantly on a budget? Well, I am. When I started collecting Copic Markers, I was tempted to buy a really nice storage for them. But instead of purchasing some sort of storage, I just bought markers. As my collection grew, I had no place to store them. The same with my Distress Ink Pads. Stacking the ink pads was fine and easy to organize. But when I needed an ink pad that was way down the bottom, I had get all the pads in the stack and then stack them up again. So I thought of making a storage for both the Copics and Distress Ink Pads.
I used photo boxes for the Copic markers and a 12x12 box for the ink pads. Some black foam boards and tacky glue. It may not look pretty but at least I have storage for my "inks" and I can keep them organized. The total cost: $15
Enjoy your day!
