Tip of the Week (#9) Got Makeup?...or a case that is

I discovered that cosmetic cases or makeup compartment trays work wonders for organizing your crafting tools and/or supplies.
I found a clear acrylic cosmetic tray with compartments for lots of items. This one had a slot wide enough for a 12x12 paper trimmer, a smaller paper trimmer, slots for adhesives, paint, glitter bottles, scissors, rulers, pokey pix, and more.

This thing had about 7 storage slots! The look was sleek and it could sit flat on a hard surface and provide quite a few storage options giving you the ability to have those most used crafting tools right at your finger tips. The best thing about this storage solution was the price. I found it at Big Lots for just $5.99. There aren’t many products out at the moment for desktop craft supply/tool storage that can boast that price point. You could either purchase a cosmetic case with the lid and hide everything away when you’re done with it, or you could purchase a cosmetic tray providing you the open concept, quick access option. Either way, practical and efficient storage will be readily available if you dare purchase a cosmetic case.

So next time you are out and about, keep your eyes open! Just because a product is marketed for one use doesn’t mean we can’t give it another. Always remember to check your local discount and warehouse stores. They may very well surprise you.

Happy Crafting!
