I have been looking forward to making this magnetic makeup board since I found the original picture on tumblr. It’s not perfect and I didn’t take pictures of the step by step, but I think I’ll be able to explain it okay. Here is a picture of the original:
- 3 12″ by 12″ pieces of card stock, what ever colors or patterns you want, I used green pink and a pattern paisley piece
- 4 paper clips
- Magnetic white board
- Scrapbook Mounting Squares (REQUIRED, tape will not work as well)
- Your makeup
First, measure your card stock to your magnetic white board. Next when you have cut the cardstock to the appropriate size, place mounting squares around the edges of the cardstock, sticking it to the board.
Next, take your second piece of card stock and make a frame around the white board. This is only necessary if your white board has a frame. I couldn’t find a wooden frame like the picture above that fit my white board, but if you can find one go for it! Stick your paper frame on with the mounting squares and smooth.
Now you are going to make your brush and other makeup cups. Take your card stock and cut a piece that is large enough to fold over to create a sturdy cup. Place the ends together and put the paper clips about 1 1/2″ down from the ends. Now fold the ends away from each other to make a flat side. Now tape the loose pieces of paper together and tape the flat side to the cylindrical container. Now cut an overside circle for the bottom taping the extra pieces on the inside of the cylinder. Place magnets on the back of the cylinders with mounting tape.
Finally place magnets on the back of your makeup with the mounting tape and put your brushes and other makeup in the cylinders and viola! you have yourself a makeup board!
