Hey guys, I've a quick DIY tutorial for you today, Lord knows why I never thought to do this before, as I have saved pots of all kinds for years for my 'crafters obligatory' bits & pieces. However doing this simple DIY makes them soooooooo much easier to keep track of, especially as you can categorize them nicely.
What you will first need is pots to recycle, of the same size and shape & with lids that will fit happily onto/into the base of another. I'm using pots my natural cosmetics come in as it's very strong plastic, however if you do not have pots like this here are some alternatives I quickly found in my bathroom & kitchen:
|Condements pot from my local takeaway & facewash/moisturiser pot from Lush (if you can stand not getting you're free facemask that is!)|
Take a look at what you or your friends/family members have; they'll definitely be something, somewhere you can use!
First wash & dry your pots:
|remember to pull off any stickers|
Next apply strong glue (if you have a glue gun I'd recommend using that) to the top of one pot, then the bottom of another:
...obviously try to make them as evenly straight as possible.
While you're waiting for it to completely dry take a piece of scrap and cut a label for the top:
Luckily my circle punch is the *exact* fit for these pots, if yours isn't a hand-cut circle/shape just adds more of your own special touch to it =)
I then label what's in there, and I also like add a little inventory of my bits to the top too, so I can see at a glance exactly what I have in there:
and that's it! Super simple, eco-friendly craft storage.
Happy weekend and ta-ta for now,
love Jennibellie =)
