Well, after finding my newest make up brush ruined in the bathtub (apparantly it was part of a barbie makeup salon that took place in this morning bath) I decided that it was high time to make myself a new make up bag instead of just throwing everything loose into a drawer in the bathroom.
Well, after searching around for some makeup bag tutorials, I was really disappointed. They are basically glorified pencil cases and offer little actual organization - I wish I still had my old caboodle!
Then, I found a very simple concept - the make up roll. It's really similar to the knitting needle roll, but for your make up and brushes.
tutorial here at LBG Studios. I liked the basic idea of this and with this really simple design you could seriously just fold a really nice single placemat and create this same concept without measuring or really much work at all.
Then, I didn't really care fo the plain exterior so I jazzed it up with some ribbon roses. I actually picked these scraps up off of the floor next to the cutting table to turn them into these roses.
I'm sure that we previously posted a tutorial for these roses on the blog, but if not, here is another great tutorial that shows you how to make srap fabric roses from SippyCupMom.
Finally, I am not into the ribbon tie closure. In my experience, they just come untied or turn into an impossible to untie knot. So, I loved this idea for a closure that I saw in this great coffee sleeve tutorial from Liberate Creativity.
Now you see why I call it CRAFT FUSION. I used the pieces from three totally unrelated tutorials to make one great project. .
