Craft Room Storage {Tutorial using BIC Mark-It}


Awhile back, I showed you my combined craft room/guest room and shared all the details of my crafty storage solutions. As with every room, it's ever evolving! So, today, I'm sharing my quick and easy tutorial for a hand-doodled craft container using markers from BIC Mark-It. I love these markers because they come in the dreamiest colors. Seriously, 36 gorgeous colors!


When I say this project is easy, I mean it! I picked a doodle that anyone can do. If you can draw a triangle (over and over again), you can doodle this design!

To start, grab a white metal, plastic or ceramic container that will meet your storage needs. I needed something cute for my washi tape collection, so picked up this metal container from my local craft store.  Then I began making upside-down triangles, connecting them at the corners. I didn't want them to be perfectly uniform, so I went fairly quickly. To get my spacing right, I did one side first and then began wrapping the triangle lines around the corners until they eventually connected back to the first triangles.

When I had my gray triangle banners (don't they look like banners) drawn, I randomly colored in some with pretty colors. Again, I wasn't going for uniformity, so random was key!

I finished my container with a sticky chalk label. Quick and easy!


The BIC Mark-It markers come in a great plastic case that makes it super easy to see each color, so, I decided to store them in their original packaging. And, as luck had it, they were the perfect size to slip into one of my magazine holders. Yes!


The key to a tidy(ish) home office or craft space is to have a place for everything. When supplies have designated homes, clean up is a breeze!


I've really enjoyed playing with these markers and I've rediscovered the art of doodling. Are you a doodler? If so, you'll love this pretty set of markers from BIC Mark-It!

***I received free products from BIC for this blog post, but all opinions are mine.
