An upcycled compact mirror case...



Compact-mirror-altered-project 

I admit. I'm lazy. I may have a ton of things in my handbag but they don't include makeup. I do have a lipstick in there somewhere...I'm sure. *winks* I always marvel at ladies who bring an arsenal of makeup out and do touch-ups in the ladies' room. That takes dedication. *LOL* 


Since I only apply my makeup once in the morning, it takes me a really really long time to finish a standard size compact before it expires. I thought I could put one to good use with a little patterned paper, washi tape, button and stickles....


Then I added some beads and photo of my nephews....and now it is grandma's little brag book. She whips it out when she reapplies her lipstick...:)

Supplies: American Crafts patterned papers, Ranger stickles and glossy accents, Fancy Pants star felt, washi tape, corrugated cardstock, button, plastic embellishment, compact mirror case.

These compacts are super cute, and I love yours much better than the average compact. These little peeps are much more fun than make-up, lol. Love how you used your compact!

I LOVE this. The only way I would love it more is if you changed the title from Team to Gangster Gang. Then it would be the coolest thing ever.
