Poor Man's Copic Organizer



I call this my poor man's copic organizer because I created it using cans.  The bottom piece is a spinning spice organizer for your kitchen.  I spray painted it black.  Then I saved up some soup cans.  I used 2 large fruit cans, 3 regular vegtable cans, and 2 small soup cans.  This combo fits perfectly in the spice organizer.  Now of course this want hold all your copics, but I'm not planning on owning them all.  If you have more, you could set up 2 of these.  I own 162 and there is room to add a few more in this system.

How do you store your copics?

Great idea, Melisa! I tried Copics last night for the very first time. Sigh...I'm hooked! Guess I'll start saving empty cans! Hugs...

Hi Melissa! This is such a neat idea! I thought about doing this with the older crystal light cans I saved but I found something else that works for me. I got one white cube from M's that has drawer dividers in it, set it on end and use the dividers to hold my Copics. I have tons of room to expand but I don't have as many as you do! Anyway.... this is so pretty too! I love it!!! Thanks for the inspiration!
