Are you tired of not having the numbers on the ends of your Ciao markers? Do you wish they could look like this?
Inquiring minds want to know how I labeled my Ciao markers, so I thought I would do a quick tutorial. I'm too lazy (and cheap LOL!) to go out looking for specialty labels when I can create my own in the comfort of my own home, using supplies I already had on hand.
How to label your markers:
- copic markers LOL!
- scrap pieces of your favorite white card stock
- 1/4" circle punch (mine is the one sold by SU, but I'm sure there are others ones out there)
- fine tipped black pen/marker of your choice (I used a 0.3 copic multi liner)
- mini glue dots, 3/16" size works best
Step One: Scribble a circle onto your cardstock (I recommend using the brand you generally color on so you will have accurate colors).
Step Two: Using your fine tipped black pen/marker, write the marker number in the circle.
Step Three: Line up the opening on your circle punch over the number and punch it out.
Step Four: Attach your punched out label to the end of the cap of your marker with a glue dot. *note* I always attach mine to the super brush tip end so that I know at a glance which cap to take off.
I rather like being able to see the actual marker color at a glance, so I've started to go back to do this to all of my Sketch and Original copics too.
I admit to being rather anal about being able to locate a specific color quickly, so I've applied the same system to my collection of stickles. Just switch out the 1/4" circle punch for a 1".
