Budget Storage

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!
