My new marker storage I can take wherever I go

I am so excited about my new stylish marker storage. 
I have room for all my Spectrum Noir Markers and my Copics.  I only have 30 right now but theres still room for more.  LOL  Once you close the latches you can carry this wherever you go and they do not spill.  
 A couple lovely ladies from the scrapbook store where I work shared this with me.  I have some white shelves I bought to keep my markers in at home but it wasn't working for when I wanted to take them to the scrapbook store or even downstairs to color when watching tv.  
This is the largest size suitcase from Michaels.  They have some gorgeous patterns.  
They are normally 24.99 and I got this for 40% and then an extra 20% off Sunday. 
So it was less than $13  
Then I went to Lowe's and bought a sheet of these plastic squares for 12.00.  
They are some kind of plastic for lighting so are where the large sheets of plastic are to put in ceilings.  It was easy to cut with pliers.  I double stacked mine.   
You actually get enough for two suitcases if you have a friend that wants to make one.  
So total $25.00
These are not my markers but I found this picture to show you what the plastic looks like.  
My next step is to put pretty tape on my markers for when I am cropping.

  1. Hi Suzanne,
    This is BRILLIANT!!! I hate my Copic Case because the markers are forever falling over. (I think it is a Copic Conspiracy in an attempt to force you to buy more to keep them standing up! LOL)

    Miss you! Hope all is well in your world!

  2. I am going to send you a picture of my copic marker box, I have the light fixture thingy inside, I wonder if I could fit it in a cute suitcase box?

    Hugs,

  4. Oh very nice Suzanne. But why did you not post this last week? I just purchased a new marker storage case and it is not nearly as cute as yours. Mine is plastic; your's has style. Of course you generally have more style that I do so there we go!! :)
