DIY : Make your own customized magnetic makeup palette

A few months ago, I recieved a box of ONE PIECE chocolates. [They were bought in Taiwan]

FYI ONE PIECE is a super popular anime/manga here in Japan.

The tin container it came in was super pretty so i decided to repurpose it by making it into a magnetic makeup palette.

What you will need:
1. A container. Something flat would be the best. [Tip: an old CD case would work well!]
2. Magnetic Sheet [i got mine from Daiso]
3. Depotted Eyeshadows/Blush/Makeup

Optional Step
Get rid of the chocolates.
If you dont eat chocolates [like me] you can give them to your loved ones. [Thanks hubs for eating them XD]

Step 1: Trace around the container onto your magnetic sheet

Step 2: Cut the magnetic sheet to size and fit it into your container. I did not use any adhesive for this step as it was a tight fit. If its not a tight fit in your container, try using some double sided tape.

That’s it, you are done XD

Ok i admit, its not the most complex tutorial ever and you probably didnt need one.
However i hope this inspires you to do something similar or keep a look out for containers you can recycle!

Have a fabulous weekend! [hey maybe this can be your weekend project!]
If you try this out, let me know how you go!!
XOXO Yumeko

    Hehe I’d definitely reuse all pretty containers. But is this sturdy enough for travelling?

      i own many of the commercially made customized palettes and they are made in a similar way.
      so as long as you think those are sturdy enough, these will be too. :D
      hope tat helps!

    Hi Yumeko!
    I actually did something very similar a couple years back with a metallic pencil case that I bought at the 100yen store! I still use it :)

    great idea! I’ve been thinking of buying a z palette but this is a much more eco-friendly (and most importantly, cheaper!!!) option! Thanks Yumeko :)
