All About Marker Storage

Pens, pencils, markers are basic tools of the crafting trade, right?  Over at PaperCrafter’s Corner this week they are having an Alcohol Markers Week. We thought we would play along by providing a fun roundup of some pretty ingenious marker storage ideas.

      Lynn, it really depends on the marker. Copics and other alcohol ink markers can be stored any way and it doesn’t matter. I agree that water based markers do better laying flat and that is how I have always stored mine.

    Can’t find the wine rack for marker storage anywhere. So where did you get yours?? Also my steel rule die cuts are deteriorating cause of plastic fumes. Do you have a storage idea or system for them?? I have around 12. They are Tin Holtz brand.
    thanks for any help
