Copics, Copics, Copics!!!

At the recent Scrap Shotz crop, it was clear that the Copics craze was live and well. There were lots of croppers working on their Christmas cards and I had lots of croppers try their hand with copics at the Make and Take table.

One of the croppers had a wonderful storage solution for her copics. She purchased a padded box from Homesense and cut down a ceiling lighting tile to insert each copic into. I thought it was brilliant; don't you? Thank you Linda M for sharing :-)



At the make and take table, we coloured images like these -


It was lovely to share my love of copics with others :-)

Thanks for dropping by!

If I had copics, this would be a great way to store them!

This is by far the best storage I have seen for Copic markers. Thanks for posting it.

Great storage idea that's not crazy expensive nor limited. It can hold all markers in one spot. Quick question... What's the teal band around each marker for?

I have enjoyed your blog! The storage is an attractive idea and looks very clean with colors easy to find. I have to tell you though that markers should be stored horizontally for the best lifetime and performance. At the cost of Copic, I thought you would like to know. :) So maybe turn the box on its side?

Copic markers can be stored either horizontally or vertically, which is one of things you can read about on the Copic site, or it is mentioned at the first Copic certification class. Only the Copic glitter pens must be stored horizontally due to the fragments of glitter glass.

great idea except. I thought you where suppose to store horizontal and in air tight containers. So they don't dry out. I think I read that somewhere. Just wondering??
