Happy WOYWW #157...hope everyone had a great time visiting all the linked blogs last week and swapping ATC's. I am working on another batch so if you would like to swap this week let me know and I will ship one your way! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! What's WOYWW...well Julia at Stamping Ground can fill you in on it...
What's on my work desk tonight you say? Well a lot of "stuffs" still but I am working on making a marker/copic/pen holder. I got this idea off another blog, Stamp, Paper, Scissors, and Donkey Smiles where Michele took a chipboard box and converted it to hold hers so I can't claim an original idea here but it is a lot cheaper adaptation of buying a ready made box to hold your Copics or markers!
|This is my 'treasure chest that I bought to make my holder with! Sorry about the picture!|
|The component that makes this such a workable idea is the dropped ceiling light grid tile that you can buy at just about any hardware store. It runs about $12 a 2' x 4' section but you can make multiple boxes with one tile so get together with friends and split the cost. I decided not to use a chipboard box but a wooden travel case I found on sale at Michael's for 50% off then I threw in a 20% off total purchase coupon and I walked away with it for $9 plus change.|
|This box is 11.25" x 6.25" and will hold 153 markers/Copic markers/pens. I think you could actually get by a little cheaper making one using a covered box or re purposing a box and covering with a nice paper!|
This latest addition to my color collection will make it easy to go to crops and take colors with me.
Okay that's what's on my desk today. I am off to check out other blogs around the world and have a snoop to see what else everyone is doing. Join us! It is addictive.
