Container for my Copic markers

When I use my copic markers, I like to keep the ones I'm working with close to hand.  They get in the way if I just lie them on the table so I decided I would make a container for them.



I started off by recycling some empty double sided tape rolls.  I joined them together and then paper maché over the top including the insides before painting.  I used some heavy weight cardboard cut with a circle Spellbinders die to create the bottom for the container.  I should have photographed all the stages, but I have a bit of "behind the scenes" here:



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

I also used some acrylic paint from Kaisercraft, some glitter paste from Bo Bunny's applied through a stencil from Memory Box and an image from Morgan's Art World which I coloured with copic markers (most of which are in the container!).

As you can see I have started more than one container so I'll be making a few more as time permits.

  1. I love it when people come over all 'Blue Petery'. Great idea, I just usually lay the ones i'm using on top of all my others in their little bag! Not a great way to organise them I know!
