Markers storage

Hello! I took some time on the weekend to finish the project I started several months ago. Then I bought my first ProMarkers, I needed a place to store them. So I made a little shelves for them. The top shelf held my glitter pens, graft knife and other pens at first but I had to take them away after I bought more markers. Now the shelves are full so I have to make another one :o)

I made the shelves from recycled cardboard and covered everything with white papers. I didn't decorated at first but now then I saw a challenge at Kaia's Scrapbooking Fairy Tale I had to decorate it. I knew if I let the challenge go I won't too it any time soon :)

I used pattern papers which I bought from Tiimari. I don't know why I didn't bought more of them. Pack of 32 8"x8" cost only 1,60€. Seriously. And they are so pretty. 
After covering the shelves with pattern papers and lace I thought I need something where I can put my pens. So I recycled small Christmas light box I saved from last Christmas (I knew it will be useful someday) and covered it with nice paper too. 

After finishing the shelves and pencil box I wasn't pleased. It needed something more. Something they can stand on. Yesterday I received small parcel with grafting goodies and the box they ware in was exactly the same width as my shelves and pencil box together. It was perfect. I just had to make it shorter, clue the loose sides and make a drawer to inside. Now I have nice place to keep my pearls and rhinestones. And also the tiny candy box there I hold my markers fine nibs and caps. 
Some markers reach out from the shelf longer then other because they have fine nib on. I should took them off to have a little nicer photo but it's hard for me to take them off, so it will have to too :)

So this is it, my little storage place :) It was fun to make it.
