marker storage



I recently posted my home made stamp pad storage, and said how I needed something for my markers. Well, this isn't exactly what I had in mind, but hey, it works! This is a CASE from the US catalogue - no idea what tins they used, but I used nesquik tins :) The kids in this house think Christmas has come early! I had to go out and buy 5 tins especially, because I have NO patience, and couldn't wait til we actually HAD 6 empty tins! The guy at the checkout thought I was nuts! :)


These are covered using the Ginger Blossom DSP from the Summer Mini. J turned round once it was made and said if I wanted here to drink 6 more cans of nesquik so I could make another one, then she supposed she could do that. And if the next oen I amde was in the Bali Breeze paper, and HAPPENED to find it's way up to her room, well she could probably live with that too :) A for effort darling!

hey, love this idea, i don't have anyone who drinks nesquick but im thinking the chicken powder tins i get from the asian markets will do just as good!!

How clever (and I love the paper)! I use a bright red wine rack for mine. We have to get creative, right? :)

What a fabulous idea. My markers fit in one tin right now must buy more so I need a pretty holder like yours.
