Here at the offices, we’re always looking for fun DIY projects to try post office hours or on lazy Sunday afternoons. While we admit that we have a guilty pleasure for Lauren’s Crafty Creations and all things Pinterest, some of our favorite craft inspirations come from our very own members. Enter: Tessa J., our latest Chic of the Week! Tessa’s DIY makeup palette is a pretty project that’s simple too…

Chic of the Week: Tessa's DIY Makeup Palette

We love how Tessa took a regular object–a CD case–and recycled it into something lovely and entirely different. To create this makeup palette, she removed the contents of an old CD case, glued scrapbook paper to the inside, then attached an old compact mirror and drugstore eye shadows to the inside of the case. Tessa’s innovative thinking inspires us to see things in a whole new (crafty) way.

Congrats Tessa!

Would you try recreating this pretty palette? Do you have a creative DIY a la Tessa?
