This is the first attempt at making a storage unit for my copics just using cardstock. I didn’t finish it because I knew I wanted something better and sturdier. I have seen on the internet a copic storage unit made out of wood that I really like. But being made out of wood I figured it would be too heavy to carry around. So I tried using foamboard with the cardstock.
At each end score at ½ intervals. ½, 1, 1 ½, 2, and 2 ½. Within the last section make a mark. Flip it around and score the other end.
Then fold the section with the mark over that and tape.
Pick it up and play with it to make it square.
To make the layers I find using a cardboard box helps to align everything up. Lay down however many square tubes you want in the layer. Then measurement and cut your foamboard accordingly. With wanting 8 layers I will need 9 pieces that are 4 ½ by 5 ½.
Pick up the foamboard and put glue on top of squares. I use whatever old glue that I have on hand that I want used up.
Flip one over to where foamboard is on bottom and the squares are up. Add glue, then place next layer on top with formboard on bottom.
Repeat with all layers ending with the last piece of formboard on top.
After that has dried measure and cut foamboard for back piece then glue.
Decorate how you want or leave plain. This one I covered with a paper napkin from the # 18 Miscellaneous Set.
