    • Thanks, Russell! I have been using mine for a month now, and it really is handy! It works for Prismacolors and any other markers, too; I just think of it as a Copic wallet because I got Copics for my birthday back in September, and I needed some way to carry them with me.

      Thanks for commenting!

  1. I can't wait to make one. I've been chomping at the bit for at least two weeks now.. lol!!

    I want to win those bookends! Gar!

    • LOL! Thanks, Sarah! I couldn't sleep last night because I was thinking about making another one. I think the first one took only 25 minutes (that might have been worth mentioning – derp!), so I might make another one this morning!

  2. I hear you, Melissa! If you can't find a photo album, I think a hard cover book would also work. Or an old day planner. I might have to run back to Goodwill today for a day planner I've been eying.

    Thanks so much for commenting!

  3. Hokey smokes, Ann, this is terrific! I got to tell you, I bought a ton of copics after using yours, and I have no cool storage method for them…they are in a (semi -cool) altered paperdoll lunchbox thingy I made back when my markers were Prismacolors. (I also remember back when I had to go with out shoes and eat beans out of a can. Ah the Prismacolor days!)

    Anyway, I really need one of these, so I am so excited to make one! Thanks for the great project!

    • Yay! I am really excited that you are really excited! I made this over a month ago, and I have been squirming with anticipation waiting to post! I can't wait to see what you make!

    That is beautiful Ann! Unfortunately (but fortunately) I have so many markers the book would have to be 4 x 5 feet to hold them all (got a great deal on Ebay). If I find a nice photo album in a thrift store, I will try it though. Thanks for the idea!

  5. Hmmmm you just gave me an idea I wonder if it will work for tubes of seed beads, I don't see why not. gottta get to the thrift store to get an album!
    Thanks for the great idea and the instructions.

    • OMG, what a fabulous idea! Now you're going to make me dig out all my tubes of seed beads, Cara! Thanks so much for commenting – and if you make one, be sure to post a pic to be entered in our contest!

    Although I have the PERFECT storage space for my multitude of Copic Sketch markers, I am gonna make this for my refills, which DON'T have a nice place to live, and need one.

    SO excited to see what you come up with, lovely arteests! I have serious Copic envy, but hoping Santa will overlook the naughty-list this year and say Ho-Ho-How about some COPICS?!

    • Nanner, I hope Santa knows about all of the great deals you can get on the 'net and with Michaels coupons! (And if he doesn't, have him call me!) 😀

    I'm almost done with my copic marker storage unit. This was a great project. I had all of the supplies I needed except the staple gun, but it's good to have one anyway so I didn't mind buying one at the hardware store. I hope I can remember how to add photos.

    I had quite a few old photo albums laying around. I used mine to store my art supplies, tags, labels, die cuts, etc. Alll the things left over from projects that were too good to throw away but impossible to find thrown in a box. I got through my albums when I start a project and take what I think I'll use. They can always be returned. The albums look nice on a shelf, are convenient to use and there really is no assembly except slipping the art pieces in the folder.

    • Those are great ideas, Barb! And I agree with you: Photo albums look great on a shelf. I do love tidy, attractive storage!

      Hey, if you don't mind my asking, where did you learn about this tutorial? (That is, I know you found it through Craftsy, but how did you come across it over there?)
