“On the Go!” Copics Storage

“On the Go!” Copics Storage

Hello Some Odd Girl Fans!  

Kimberly Wiener here!

I frequently get together with other crafters in my community, and we put kits together for each other to make.  I also attend card classes at least once a month.  Traveling to another location to craft is sometimes challenging.

I found a great use for up-cycling plastic drink containers.  They are the perfect size for a handful of Copics!  With a lid, and the fact that they can lie on their side and stack, even better!  Depending on the type of drink mix, there can be an oval shaped container or a rectangle shape.  Both fit 13 Copics easily, and you can pull them out easily as well.

If you decorate your container and fill it up, it can be a great starter gift for the new crafter, or someone new to Copics or other alcohol markers!


I “corral” the same color families together to better blend and stay organized.  When I arrive to craft at card classes, I can pop the top off and grab a full container of colors as I need them.  Keeping the lids on until I am using them will deter them from “walking away” on me. Since I keep 12-13 per container I can easily see if any are missing.


Here are some of my Copics.  The ones to the left are sealed with lids and the open ones are the ones that I am currently using for a project.  And my cute little red hedgehog, “Hedgie” – well he is a kitchen pan scrubber I found that helps me clean some of my hard-to-clean detailed rubber wood mounted stamps!


I hope this inspires you to look around your home for ideas to up-cycle unexpected items into your everyday crafting, and help you stay organized too!

Have an ODD day! -Kimberly. 


  1. Such a nice way to share kindness and recycle. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Terrific idea Kimberly and what a great fit!! Thanks for the tip 🙂

  3. love this idea, I have so got to find something like this. At the moment mine are all stored in a cube with elastic bands round the different colour sets. Yes not so great but better than spending ages looking for each colour which is what I use to do. Thanks for the share, now I need to see whats around the place.

  4. What a really neat idea! The container actually holds quite a few markers too! Thank you for sharing 🙂
