When Paper is Useful

2 03 2017

Useful is great. Useful AND pretty is awesome πŸ˜‰

I’ve been using this craft storage bin by Art Bin to hold my markers. I added the marker holder inserts to help keep things organized. Unfortunately, I wasn’t really happy with it. There was too much wasted space and the holder kept coming out. I’ve had to resort my markers way too many times.

So then I went with the “whatever” system of sorting my markers which was really no sorting at all, which was great, until I needed to find certain colors.

This led me to adding in the dividers the box came with and dividing markers by color, but just letting the markers hang out. This created a lot more usable space, but still, I wasn’t as happy with it as I wanted to be.

Finally, I used my Silhouette Cameo and made these boxes, you can buy the fileΒ here if you’re interested. The boxes work so well, because they were designed just for this reason πŸ™‚Β  I used cardstock with double -sided designs so they looked pretty inside and out πŸ™‚

Each compartment holds 6 markers. Each box has 2 compartments. I’ve grouped my markers by color and now, I can reach in and pull out the box of colors I need at that moment to color. When I’m done, the box goes back in and I move on. So far, I REALLY like this set up. It’s organized, user friendly, and has created so much more usable space. The $0.99 I spent on the file was totally worth it πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚
