My new Promarker storage + FREEBIE!!!


Hiya Everyone!

I have finally finished my promarker storage rack that I made with an IKEA DVD rack. This isn't my idea so I can't take the credit - I think it was originally devised by Camilla from Norway. Her cards are fabulous (she designs for Magnolia) so check out her blog here. The DVD rack cost £7.99 and was kindly sent to me by a fellow Docrafter called Karen before christmas as I was pregnant and wasn't able to get to IKEA myself. It takes 14 blank DVD cases (Poundland) and will house all your promarkers neatly and in order. I also bought some small round stickers from Rymans that I coloured in and stuck to the flat end of the pen. I used the official promarkers colourchart and spent hours on word making little boxes to fit along the spines of the DVDs so they listed the colour and had a small box to colour in underneath which I printed on the Rymans white coated card.




As a freebie if any of you want to make one of these for yourself I would gladly e-mail you the word document so you can just print it off to save you doing all the messing about that I did getting it to look right!

Thanks for looking!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing.

  15. Brilliant job Paula, the finished result is definitely worth the effort. Thanks for offering to send out the word document, it will certainly take the hassle out of setting one up for everyone else! Hugs, Denise x

  16. That's great Paula. I bought a DVD rack from Tesco's after I had seen a similar tutorial a long time ago but it hasn't got so many slots so I have all my greys in a little box but it is a pain to get the grid right. I managed it after a couple of attempts thank goodness.

    It's really nice of you to email it top people though. Crafter's who share are the best :)

    Take care xxx
