My Portable Copic Storage....

Hi Bloggers,

I've been looking around for a while for a container to hold my Copic Markers.  I wanted one I could pick up  and carry around with me.  Pinterest is full of ideas but none of them worked for me :( .

Lat week I was killing time waiting for Ian and walked into our local Howard Storage World and found just the thing!

This sturdy plastic basket measures approx. 8-3/4 x 13-1/4 inches. It has a good metal handle with plastic covering just where you place your hands to carry it. It's a good straight sided basket approx. 5" deep. 

These plastic separators (from the same store) can be snapped to the required size and slot into each other to form the dividers.  

This was such an inexpensive solution at under Aus$50......From memory the basket was $20 and the dividers $10.     PERFECT!

Love this shop! I have one within walking distance and I am frequently found there. It has great containers for paper too - although they are meant for the pantry. Next time I am there I will take a peek at these. I currently have my alcohol markers in a dvd box with card board slots I made - they aren't holding up to good. TFS.

Love this idea. It would certainly work for me.
Just a question, do you think it would hold the whole set of copics?
thanks for the inspiration
