Displaying your Zentangles
First I found a photo cube. This one happens to be one I had sitting in my closet. The pictures that were in it were pictures from the 60's. (I was a youngster then - really!) It has one big piece of foam in the middle that holds the photos in place. I was happy to see that it fit my Zentangles nicely. There are now similar photo cubes that are sold at Michaels stores. Sometimes they are on a shelf way up high so get an employee if you can't find them yourself.
At Christmas I received a set of glass drink coasters and a wooden holder for the coasters. I really that it too was the right size for my Zentangles. Actually it is a little wide but that gives me room to put a pen alongside my tiles. The coaster holder has space for LOTS of tiles. I actually didn't have enough to fill it so I keep extra tiles in the back so I can create whenever the mood strikes. A friend reminded me that it is better to store your pens flat. I had forgotten. I will store my pens to the side ONLY if they are flat as pictured.
I went on a search on the internet to find similar items and found quite a selection. I would first suggest that you do a search around your own home for similar items! Maybe you will find them in a discount or secondhand store too.
I would love to hear any other display ideas you have come up with. Please add your ideas to the comments.
