DIY Make-up Organizer

My version of DIY Make-up Organizer


Happy Tuesday Everyone! How was your week doing so far? I was extremely busy in last 3 days trying to make up some behind house chores due to unexpected back pain.  Anyway, I feel a lot better now, seems like everything is back to normal and I would like to say " Thank You" for all your heart warming concerns and advice.:)
Talking about house chores, luckily for me I got 2 cutie little helper in the house whose willing to help me, Yay! Lately, I'm having problem make everything look nice and organize especially my make-up accessories and taking more time get everything into place. So, I always just put everything in a box and put it underneath the sink but yesterday, I accidentally spell my mascara all over the place and I ended up spending time cleaning.. ( NAY!). Since then, I been thinking about buying Make-up Organizer at the store for some reason I back off at very last minute and decided to make one my own instead. So here it is, My version of DIY Make-Up organizer. I got all this cute make-up accessories last Christmas during our gift exchange, that's the only reason why I have all this stuff. ( hehehe)  It also helped me to used some of my unused boxes laying around the house.
The idea behind this DIY Organizer is very simple. Cut the boxes into desired size, glued them together and covered it with your favorite wrapping paper,, embellish it cut off from wrapping paper but if you have fancy ribbons and sticker you can also used that one.  Remember the Shoe Boxes I made for my kids? The concept is the same but in different form and style. I also recycled my wrapping paper on my last project and used it on this one.
My kids are having fun making their own creation as well. Join me with my crafty fun moments and hopefully you'll be inspired.wink:)

Things you'll need:
Unused Boxes- used whatever you have on hand.
Scissors
Glue gun, glue and tape- hold them together
Unused wrapping paper
Pens
Embellishment- optional



 Directions:
1.) Cut the top of the first box to create the base line of the organizer.
2.) Cut the second box into half. Make sure its small enough to fit on the base.
3.) I also added some cut small boxes ( bar soap boxes) to fit on the front.
4.) Try to position all the cut boxes. Make sure that they all fit before putting them all together.
5.) Using Glue Gun glued them together. Push little bit more if you need to.:)
6.) Wrap it with your favorite wrapping paper. I cut cute flowers from wrapping paper for embellishment.

No more missing lipsticks or nail polish everywhere. I got everything I need all in one place and its organize according to colors and sizes. Yay! The finish product is better than I expected.
It's not only I save money from buying one, It also gives me some bonding moment with my kiddies. Share me your crafty moments with you kids, friends or family. Have you ever make your own make-up organizer? Share me your ideas..:)
Till next time... Enjoy the rest of the week.. See you in few days for more fun moments..
