I'm always on the look out for great storage ideas but today I wanted to share an idea with you. I needed a way to store my Prismacolor Pencils because finding one color in the pile was too time consuming. I came across these containers at the hobby store (Michaels) and thought they would be perfect.
I created a specialized chart because my pencils are very old so there are a lot of retired colors and names that have changed. To do this, I arranged them all out on the table and fiddled with the rainbow until I was happy. Then I transferred the number order into a spreadsheet, printed it and finally colored it in.
The containers come with one large one and two smaller trays in a bundle. I combined two bundles and used four smaller trays for the pencils which correspond to each column in the color chart. Then I tacked on one of the large trays to carry around the extra equipment and other small items.
This also makes it easy to color on the go... just store a couple extra stamped sheets in the bottom tub then grab and go! I hope this gives you some ideas too and good luck!
