My new promarker storage

Hi all,well wish me luck as this is also my first scheduled post so hopefully it will be not shown til 13th april, anyway i have been looking for travel storage for my promarkers to take to craft meets and i have been exploring blogs and found loads of different ideas, my first choice was this fab bag over at Elaines blog but felt i wanted something with a lid and whilst googling came across this great blog with the answer to my prayers. Well in the meantime i had a go and made a temporary version
using  two cd holders that i used to hold my images in and was pleased with the result though took me 3 hrs to punch holes in double sided labels,colour,realise i had coloured the non sticky side.....lol,unpeel,swear and throw away,and then add to pens, what a marathon :)  But it kept me going til i was able to go and collect my new storage from tescos today. Have lovingly swopped them over and now in their new home, just got to shrink my promarker colour chart so it fits in the lid and i am ready for action.
You can find the case here and it was a bargain as i used my tesco vouchers but shush dont tell hubby.....lol now i have some metal storage drawers to fill up,x
