Copic Color Wheel Tags!

Okay, so I've become obsessed with Copic markers! I have my hand color chart, but I needed a way to hold a color up to my paper to match them up! So I started with a Marvy Uchida tag punch (the Large Blue one). Punched out a ton of tags (plus extra for future copics!!) On the tag I used the chisel tip and drew 3 lines and a colored in spot. The first line is 1 layer of color, 2nd line is 2 layers of color, and the 3rd is 3 layers of color. Then below that I just colored in a blotch to see full saturation. I wrote in the color # and the name, punched a hole and started filling up my large book binder ring! PS. I saw an example of this fantastic idea over at Purple Onion!

That is a fabulous idea! I love to hold my papers up together to get an idea of what they'll look like. I hope you don't mind but I'm going to copy this idea of yours!

Hi Tiffany. I am addicted to my Copics also. I really really love this idea. I have made myself a book with my colors in it, but there are times that I want to match a color that is in the middle of a pattern paper and I just can't see them close enough. I hope you don't mind, but I am pulling out my Cricut and cutting up some tags toninght. lol...Thanks for the great idea. Hugs, Lisa G
