Copic Marker Storage

Hello,
Today, I'm sharing how I store my Copic Markers.
I saw this idea online somewhere....am not sure who to give credit to.  This is PVC pipe that my husband cut for me in segments of about 5 inches.  I like having the marker sticking out a little so that it is easier to grasp. 
My husband glued the pipes together with PVC glue.



I found a cute little plastic container with a lid at Target.  It was just the right size with a little extra room on the sides for my Copic Marker Charts and Liners.

It fits nicely in the trunk or back seat when traveling.

The tubes are 2 inches in diameter (inside) and you can fit 11 Sketch Copics in one tube.

It is customizable as you can add tubes as you add markers to your collection.
Thanks for visiting!

Thanks for sharing your marker idea - I have used two different ways to store mine and still am not crazy about how they are...like your idea and may have to try it. At least like colors would be together, when I start coloring they end up ALL over the place....all fun though.

I have been looking at this storage system for my markers but wasn't sold on it. I have a desk that has a suspended shelf. I figured I could arrange the pipes to fit in the space between the desk and the shelf. But...this just didn't seem like a portable method to me...that is until I saw your post..duh...a big bin! Why didn't I think of that! Thanks for sharing!

I will make a correction to this post, I had forgotten that we changed our minds and used PVC glue to bind these together, not hot glue.
