Stylish Copic/Colored Pencil Holders !

Pin It! OMG!!! I created the most stylish and useful way to not only have easy access to my colored pencils but to display them as well! I have been struggling with my Prisma Color pencils for a while now. I love them but they come in a metal tin and I have to constantly sift through the layers of pencils to find the color that I need. UGH! I have been brainstorming for a while and came up with this solution! LOVE IT!!! I loved it so much for my colored pencils that I decided to do the same for my Copic Markers. I have been doing some investigating as to whether it is best to store them on their side or up and down, etc. I haven't found any solid answers so after long hard thinking I have decided what is best for me is to store them my way. LOL I have been storing them up and down and haven't had a problem so why stop now, right? I love that they are portable within my home and since I don't take them with me anywhere I don't have to worry about that. When I add to my collection I will just add another vase.

To create this masterpiece of color I got a vase and fill it part way with Crystal Fill. You can find it in the floral department at JoAnn fabrics. I then just started adding my colored pencils or markers to the vase. It's just that easy.

Great idea Christie and it's really pretty!!! Mine are stashed in a drawer and though I would love to do something similar to yours, I have run out of surface... LOL... I do know where to find them each time though!!!

I love it!!!

I do love this idea, like Wwilloww said though I do not have any surface space. Though I am working on changing my spare bedroom into a craft room and moving the wardrobes in there into the smaller room I use as my craft room. I am sure I could organise it a lot better and have loads more storage. I could still keep my spare bed in the room. Now to persuade hubby it would be a good idea. Big G.
Or I could send him away for a weekend and get my grandson in to help me move it all. GGGG.
I wonder if those glass marbles would work as well. maybe not as they are too solid and you would maybe not get so many pens in it.
I would also be worried that knowing me I would knock it on the floor and spill it all, clumsy should be added to my scatty name

Oh how CUTE!!!!! They do indeed look very stylish!!!

LOVE the idea, as I am VERY OCD & love to organize. I have a soon to be 3 year old who loves to play in my craft area so this at this particular moment in time would be out of the question. BUT I will forward the idea to my other crafter friends in my new organization that I instruct the Cricut to....they love this kinda stuff. I have directed them to your blog so hopefully you will get a few more followers! YEAH! :0)

I love this idea! Now I only have to amass a copic collection!

You are so creative and I absolutely love your studio. I SOOOO want to come over to play!!

This is so beautiful Christine. TFS the idea!

Hi Christie -

Awesome idea! I still have my sets of Prismacolor pencils (48 and 120) in their original boxes. And it is a pain to dig them out. Now, can I ask where you purchased the vase?

You can store your Copics standing up. In fact, your holder is very similar to the one Copic sells -- although it's not as pretty as yours!

What a great idea. I love the sparkle. I can think of quite a few items that would look pretty displayed like this ( and useful too!) Thanks so much for sharing.

You are a GENIUS!

What a great idea! That's definitely going into my future craft room! I have to room now in my little corner. :)

How Fun! I have my pencils in tin cans that I decorated w handmade papers and put on a turntable. But this is much more stylish!

Pamela Levingston March 14, 2011 at 7:48 PM  

I just did this same thing with all my makeup brushes!

Kay March 15, 2011 at 11:11 AM  

Oooooo, I like this idea. Mine are just kept in a box that I haven't even decorated.

Jess May 24, 2011 at 11:11 PM
