PROMARKER STORAGE TOWER.

Post by Lorraine on Thu 1 Apr 2010 - 15:12

This is the project I've been working on for 3 days. I didn't want to tell you what it was in case it didn't work out, but it works a treat. Jumping for Joy

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date Laughing

Ooh well done - that's looks good. What have you used for the body
of the tower ? It's very impressive.

That's brilliant. I was only looking at the bags last night and letraset had them for something like 5 but they're sold out, funny that as they're 9+ on ebay. Was wondering about making one out of an old pair of jeans an elastic, what a mess that would look next to this work of wonders!

According to several sources, PMs should be stored on their
sides/flat rather than upright. I've heard it mentioned several times on
C&C though I haven't checked the Letraset site for any info.

Ooops Soz, girls. I'll be putting the tute on here soon but for now it's over at Make Something Nice. Click on link in my sig and it'll take you there. It's cheap as chips and all made out of cardstock.

All double ended pens should be stored on their sides or one end dries up. Mr Green

It took me 3 days, Kim. Don't know how many hours in those days, but yes, it is time consuming. I had fun making it though and although it looks big, the footprint is only 9 x 6 so should fit on any desk or table somewhere. I've found space for mine. Mr Green

It got filled a bit more today, Karelyn, lol. I get the odd pen now and then, but I want to fill it all now. affraid

I should think any pens would go in, Maria.
At least they'd be organised (and we all know how you like that Wink) and to hand.

I must admit, I sat down to colour an image earlier and it was super to have all my pens in front of me.

One thing I did find that I think is brill, if you want to match cardstock to a pen, you can just hold your card up to the colour strips and see what's what. Mr Green

In fact, I have so say, I'm quite pleased with myself. No trumpet smiley, lol.

and so you should be pleased.

yes i do like having things organised. I have only got about 20 pens though. I do have lots of ink pads that are a bit higgledy piggledy, am wondering about it for them, or just a general orgnaiser with the holes labelled up for each different thing.

Pads are a problem for me - trouble is I have them in lots of different
sizes so makes it difficult to keep them in order. They are now in two
of those A4 plastic boxes, and the TH ones have a box of their own.

Smashing idea Lou.
Unfortunately I don't have room for something like it, my promarkers are in a plastic bag in a drawer, so nothing as smart as yours!
