I clean things. You know I do. I love to organize — and I’m pretty darn good at it if I may say so myself!
Anyhow, with all the other beauty junkies making lipstick organizers, I figured I’d give it a go. It turned into a night-long project with lipstick and lip balm organizers, boxes, pencil and brush organizers…
I’ll let the results speak for themselves. Scroll to the bottom if you need a hand making them!!
Measure. Cut. Fold. Not much to it :P
Cut two identical strips, use a drafting stencil to make the little notches (SO important, it takes them from “crappy five year old’s DIY” to “awesome”) on the tops. The bottoms, too, if you’d like — but it’s not like anyone’ll see them anyways!
Slice halfway up from the bottom to the centre on one strip, then from the top to the centre on the other. Take another small slice to reduce “crowdedness” in the slots so that they’ll stand up without collapsing/folding into themselves!
