this is a diy that sprang to mind on a particularly slow day at work (i am always desperate to be making things or working on other projects when i'm at work-typical!). so, after digging around every bag and craft box i own, i collected together seven plastic film cannisters and put together this nifty little lipstick (/make up) holder.
i hope i wasn't the only one who viewed the lovely paper from the first crafty creatives box as a material in itself?! it's so pretty and works perfectly for this project and you know how much i love to re-use and upcycle :)
this probably took less than half an hour to make from start to finish and i think it's turned out really well. obviously i'm not the biggest make up fanatic (i love the idea of lipstick, i'm just not great at keeping up with it!) so seven cannisters was plenty, but you could just keep adding around the initial flower shape to create an even bigger version.
and here's a little pixel snap to end with- diy'ing has become much more time consuming now that i have to wrestle my materials from her!
