TIPsy Tuesday - Marker Storage

Yesterday, I was wondering what I would do for TIPsy Tuesday today.  About a half hour later I was frustrated that I couldn't find a new SU! marker amid my marker chaos drawer of loose markers and ones packaged with the old color families.  I've been wanting to get them out of that drawer and more at hand.  Seemed like the perfect time.

Here's my fast and very cheap solution for marker storage:

  • I bought plastic drink cups at Dollar Tree - 3 cups for a $1.
  • I lined part of the inside of the lip of each cup with several folded layers of felt.  This is to build up this edge so the markers will lay more level keeping both ends moist and keeping them from falling out.  I sewed the layers of felt together before gluing in place to reduce the amount of glue.  One row of Glue Dots Continous Line held each in place.
  • The cups are then screwed through the bottom to a board supporting a shelf over my work table. 

So far my arrangement is using the new color families with the old markers mixed in where appropriate - example:  Soft Subtles are with Subtles.  Earth Elements will go together with Regals since I never bought the  Rich Regals markers.  

Hopefully, I'll use my markers more now that they are at hand.

Happy day!  Thanks for visiting.
