Welcome back! Ok, I should really be saying that to myself – it’s been a busy few months and several other things had to take a priority over the blog. But, today I’m back!
I really enjoy the challenge of trying to figure out how to reuse things, especially when it’s a nice container (I’m a sucker for a nice container!). Benefit cosmetics’ box o’powder fits right into this; it’s cute, good quality, and there just has to be another way to use it! Well, I think I’ve discovered a pretty neat reuse, that also solves a problem I have.
Now, one problem I always have when I travel is that my hair accessories, typically a hair tie or two, bobby pins, and spin pins, always get lost in my toiletry bag. This little box will be a perfect solution. Just some quick decoration with washi tape and I’m ready for my next trip. Now, full disclosure, I did get this idea from Pinterest (one of the reasons I love Pinterest) but it was just a picture with no link.
- Powder box or compact (empty and cleaned)
- Washi tape
- Craft knife or scissors
- Permanent Marker
Since I’ve used all the blush in this box/compact it’s a little beat up. Plus, I wanted to cover up the logo, so I could add my own label.
After cleaning out the box, choose a tape for covering the top of the box. I chose a dark blue pattern to provide the best coverage.
