Cute DIY Makeup Palette Tins

Hey guys!

Since I have just started depotting my eyeshadow pans and have been buying pan-only eyeshadows, I decided to put them in these little gift card tins that I bought from Michaels. While the Z Palette costs about $20, the UNII Palette costs $29, and the cheapo palettes from Coastal Scents cost about $6, (NOT including the shipping!) I thought it would be a better cheaper alternative until I have enough to fit in a bigger expensive one. :) These tins are very sturdy, the only problem is that the lids pop off so easily. Luckily, I already had some ribbon, hot glue, and Velcro laying around in my craft stuff for a quick fix. I only ended up spending around $5 to make two palettes because I already had most of the materials. Not bad, eh?

I love the different styles/prints they come in!

Materials used:
Hot glue gun (mini guns are sold in craft stores for under $5) OR Superglue
Ribbon (got mine at walmart for about $2)
Gift card tin (about $1 each at Michaels, I haven't been able to find them anywhere else)
Scissors ($0, assuming you already have a pair)
Magnets cut in circles with adhesive on the back ($2-$4?)
A little Velcro ($2-$4)

 Step 1: Cut out two small squares of either the rough part of the Velcro, or the soft part of the Velcro and glue them to the side of your tin. You want them as far down on the tin as possible so the lid can fit on evenly. Be sure that your Velcro cut outs are around the same size/width as your ribbon! (Optional: Your glue will most likely leak out from under the Velcro once you press them down onto the tin. Before the glue dries, you can use a small wooden skewer or a tool of your choice to clean up the edges once it is glued for a neater appearance.)

Step 2: Cut out 2 more squares and stick/align them over the glued Velcro squares. You'll want to make these squares slightly longer and larger than the ones that were previously glued, but still try to keep them around the size of your ribbon width. :)

Step 3: Cut off two pieces of ribbon, about 6in in length each. Put some glue on your larger Velcro pieces, place the end of your ribbon on top it and press and hold for a few seconds. Give it some time to dry while you work on the other ribbon.

Step 4: So at this point, it should look something like this.
As you can see above, the ribbons are loose on the lid, so we'll need to secure them down. So, you'll need to flip the ribbon upside down and put a line of glue starting from the Velco, (but don't let it touch the Velcro) all the way to the end of the ribbon.

 Step 5: Firmly press each ribbon down, and bring down each piece of ribbon to the bottom of the tin. It is important that these ribbons are glued securely, so make sure you have applied a lot of glue, pressed firmly, and allowed them to dry for 30 seconds before you use it again

Step 6: By now it should be dry and look something like this:

Step 7: Finally, the outside of our tin is finished, so now we can start putting our magnets in!

The tins I have found fit about 8 eyeshadows. Luckily, I found magnets that were already cut out and had glue on the back. To save some money, you can take old fridge magnets, (the thin sheet ones, they normally look like business cards or they are ads to pizza places and such) cut them in squares and hot glue them (paper-side down) to your tin.

And they should look something like this!

My original idea was to glue them in this plastic container with all my drugstore eyeshadows. To me, it looks really tacky, but it gets the job done. This is the only other type of flat, square container I could find before I discovered the gift card tins. It was around $2 at Michaels. The lid is really loose and doesn't seal well. :P

Anyways, hope this gave some of you a few ideas if you're interested in customizing your own makeup palette. If there is something I missed in this tutorial, or if you have any other questions, shoot me a comment or a message!
