Repurposed Tea Tin (organization madness #2)

Welcome to Tuesday.  Feeling a little less BLAH today, but our weather over here sure isn't looking any less glum AND I come to work today to see an email stating that they are calling for 1-4 inches of snow... news to me!! So this could make for an interesting day tomorrow, if in fact those silly forecasters get it right (1 in 10 chance?). Either way, I have another installment of organization madness for you!

Shortly after new year's I posted about repurposing a candle jar as an organization technique (here).  Well around that same time I also made a little organizer out of this fun tin which my loose mint tea comes in. *On a side note- not usually a loose tea kind of gal or organic for that matter.. but this tea is AMAZING! I buy it at Wegmans and it lasts forever.
Anyway- on to the project.

So here is the tin before and after I removed the label and scraped off all the ooey gooey mess left behind.

I cut my scrapbook paper to exactly fit around that tin and- you guessed it. ModPodged it right on there.

 Now just let it dry...

I decided to go back and use some of my glitter modge because- lets face it- every lady loves a little glitter!!
In this picture you can see I have my MK face wash and lotion in the tin.  They actually weren't a practical use for the tin and I now use it to hold my eye liners, mascaras, etc (tall skinny items) so that they do not get lost in my regular old makeup and I don't have to DIG for them. Definitely makes for an easy makeup morning routine.

What tricks do you use to organize your make up?

So cute! I've had the same jar of Mod Podge for about 2 or 3 years now and have never used it! I just might have to make some of these! :)
