Good Morning iCopic Lovers! It's Sheri here and today I wanted to share with you my new method of storing my ever growing Copic collection.
I had outgrown the Pampered Chef Roundabout I had been keeping my markers in. 
So, after searching and searching the internet for inspiration, I came up with this and it could not have been any easier to make! In my craft room, I have a large variety of Black and White boxes for storing all of my craft supplies.

All I needed was a trip to my local home improvement store to pick up a length of Vinyl Rain Gutter Downspout.  The nice man at the store cut in in half so that I could fit it into my car.

.


Vinyl Rain Gutter Down Spout
When I got it home, it was just a matter of finding the right size pieces to cut the vinyl downspout into...and what to cut it with. I ended up using a Dremel and cut them to a length of 5 inches each, although you could certainly use a Utility Saw or Hack Saw. Cutting the vinyl is very easy...but messy, but the entire process took less than 20 minutes and the thing that I love most about my new storage system is it's ability to grow. With each section comfortably holding 25 Copic Sketch Markers, the only thing that limits the amount of storage ability is the size of box that you choose.  
Thank you so much for letting me share my new Copic storage system with you today. Be sure to hope over to the iCopic Lovers Blog so that you can join the Red Hair challenge for the week!
