Copic Storage



Hi gang! I don't have any cards to show you today, but I wanted to show you my new "Copic Cups" that I got at IKEA. I used to store my copics in two plastic containers, with rubber bands grouping the different color families. Well, I got tired of pulling them out of the cabinet when I needed them and putting them away, and wanted something so they'd be right in front of me. I totally got this idea from Julie's IKEA post here...thanks Julie!

*ETA*
A couple of you asked about my ink pad organizer. I got it at
Organize More and HERE'S the link to the actual organizer.

Oh, and my buddy Dawn told me about Sandra Bullock's new movie...The Proposal...so my oldest daughter and I went to see it yesterday. AWESOME movie!! Oh my gosh, I laughed so hard I cried! If you get a chance to see it, go! You'll love it!

Oh, I just bought some of these cups at IKEA but wasn't sure what I was going to use them for...now I know!! Thanks, Denise!

The ink pad organizer you have in the picture...where did you get that? I am really frustrated with the space my ink pad organizer from Stampin' Up takes up...

Cool idea! I have mine in a show box on the side right now. Trying to figure out what I should do! I heard the movie was funny. We saw Transformers on Sat. WOW.... AWESOME!!!!

I really like that way to store your copics. The ink pad storage one is great too, looks like your new space is getting totally organized.

I love everything -- I have used the rods for my punches but have never seen the cups -- looked on line and couldn't find them -- you did get them at IKEA right?

Silke said...

Ann Kranitz said...

What a wonderful idea. I am heading to IKEA this week. Thanks!

Hi Denise...don't want to burst your bubble with your new marker storage, but have heard that storing them on their sides is better because the ink stays even. Are the Copic markers two sided? What I mean, are they like the Stampin' Up ones with large nib & smaller one on other side? That would be the reason to store on sides.

Great storage! Thanks for the links, and I'm glad you liked that movie, I've been wanting to see it!

Vicki (basement stamper) said...

Now this is cool!! I need a set up like this...going to show my hubby! TFS! :)

Dawn Easton said...

LOL you KNOW I ran out to buy this same set up when you told me the other day...sadly mine is still sitting in the IKEA bag....rofl!

OMG I totally LOVED that movie and can't wait to see it again!

Ann said...

TFS--I always love to see how others store their stuff!

Stephanie Hargis said...

I LOVE this! What fabulous storage! I currently have ZERO Copics. It makes me quite sad. Haha! I want some, I just can't seem to afford them (or so my hubby says). :D Hehe. Thanks for sharing this though because I hope to have some SOON!

((hugs))
