Prismacolor Colored Pencils Pencil Case

I've been using Prismacolor Colored Pencils since I was introduced to them by a beloved art teacher in high school. I LOVE them!! A bit about them: they are pricey--but worth saving up for. Our teacher advised us to ask for them for Christmas that year and that's what I did. And SEVERAL(!) years later, I bet I've still got a few from that set in my collection. I've since bought several more sets over the years, but they do last a good long time. Prismacolor Colored Pencils are very soft and waxy and they blend like a dream! The colors are vibrant and gorgeous.

I've stored my pencils in the boxes/tins they come in. I've stored them in tin cans. I've stored them in pouches. But nothing really worked for me. Until...

Someone on Instagram posted a picture of a 124 capacity pencil case. 124! I found them on AMAZON and ordered two thinking I'd use one for my Prismas and one for other pencils. Uh, wrong. I needed them both for my Prismas. Had a few more than I thought.
I arranged them by color and tied ribbons to the zipper pulls that tell me which colors are housed in each section. (Each zipper opens to reveal a section that holds 44 pencils, with one of the sections holding a few less to make room for a sharpener if desired).
I find that I use my Prismas more and am able to better see the colors all laid out and in order like this!
