Well, time marches on and so my Copic collection started to grow. More so, since I became a Paola groupie and had this desperate urge to colour just like Paola! Of course, the fact that she supplies me with the Copic's and at a really good price and exceptional service, sure 'grew' my range.
I found this box - without the handle and sturdy clasp, in a shop that specialises in decoupage blanks.
It was the right depth, with the lid closed and would accommodate my ever growing collection comfortably.
|Note the dividers DH made.|
Could have had more compartments, but did not push my luck!!.
Now, I need to ask the question - if you worked in a hardware store for more than 20 years would you not know that these hinges come in left and right plate faces? So, I was sold two left hand hinges and now have to go back to exchange it. Grrr...
Anyway, I digress.
DH kindly cut the inserts for me and I have packed the pens, together with Prisma pencils - some of the obvious go to colours - blending solution bottles, and other nic-nacs that I may well need whilst colouring in, all into the box. Is this not so grand??
|Still room to grow......he-he!|
Now, I need to find a way to persuade DH to do it for me. Wish me luck!
Maybe, this will work for you as well?
I'd be interested to know your favored storage system.
