Promarker Storage Update

As some of you know I tend to be a little bit of an OCD crafter - I like everything to have a place and when I have finished using it that is where it goes.

Now when I first started collecting Promarkers I used a travel CD case to transport them and it has worked really well you can see the original HERE. I then also started to collect some flexi markers and the promarkers brought out some limited edition promarkers so I decided I needed them!

       This meant my storage box was no longer large enough so I started to look at ways to improve it


I brought a slightly larger box from E-Bay then set to improving the insides I realised if I made some boxes for the pens I could store more in a row, than using the CD sleeves. So using an A4 piece of paper I scored out a box with two dividers so the pens do not fall over (I did warn you I was OCD) 

This is the A4 piece of card with the score lines dotted and the solid lines are the cut lines.
This way there is very little waste - just the small strip at the top

This way I can store over 200 pens in this case.

I also number my pens so I can put them back in the box where they belong.

Hopefully now my pens or more organised and
 I have had a tidy up of my craft bits I will get some more crafting done.
I contacted Letraset to ask they where going to update the colour chart with the new limited edition pens - they said no so I did my own and new inserts to go in the box. If anyone would like a copy of the pen chart so you can colour in your own collection please email me and I will send  it to you.

I have been crafting but doing lots of bits for my sisters wedding at the end of September so you will have to wait to see the photo until after the wedding.

In the meantime I will finish making the boxes for the pens

Thanks for looking

Love your idea on storing your markers. Was wondering if you had more details on how to make the box inserts. I don't know the measurements of an A4 paper. Also where do you put your score lines and cut lines. What are the measurements. Would love to do this for myself. Thank you for your ideas.

No Cards But A Promarker Storage Project!

Sorry not a card but I have been working on this, hopefully some cards soon. Anyone who know me knows I am a very organised crafter My promarkers have been driving me mad as they were in a number of different containers and I never seem to pick up the right container, so I decided I needed to sort it This is a CD storage box from Tescos it comes with 100 sleeves to put CD in
You can find it HERE but there are many others out there Being sad I had some Pro markers in my handbag so was able to try them in the shop for size! Each sleeve holds seven promakers and each section comfortable hold 10 sleeves or eleven with a little bit of a squeeze As I said I like things very organised or as my DH says OCD! I used some adhesive labels in my Craft Robo and cut out the little circles this way they were still attached to the backing sheet I could colour them and then peel them off with my poky tool and stick to the ends of the pens I also have put a coloured circle on the bar of each sleeve (which slides…

Friends Stick Together

This card uses a great image from Bugaboo I have coloured them using my spectrum noir pens All the papers are from my scraps boxes I did not have enough of the pink to layer behind the image so I cut a piece out of the layer behind the star paper!
