Craft Tip: How to Make the Perfect Marker Storage Unit for Art Pens

Making this marker storage unit for your art pens and markers will extend their life by storing them horizontally. Storing markers and pens horizontally helps to evenly distributed ink in the cartridge. It helps prevent dried-out markers by keeping the nib/tip of the pen moist. Additionally, for alcohol markers—such as Sharpie, Copic, and Prismacolor pens—horizontally storage helps prevent the ink from evaporating. Art Pen and Marker Storage Unit

  • Toilet paper rolls
