BB cushions have been my current obsession, but I now have the problem of “What can I do to store these nicely without having them look like a mess?” I went to Daiso yesterday and picked up some stuff to create the prefect solution.
Total $$ spent: $6
Total time used to make: 5-10 minutes
You can find the plastic grids on ebay, but I got my in Daiso for $2. The ones on ebay seems to be really flimsy, so I would suggest you guys try and go to Daiso to find these. You could also cut these out of cardboard or plastic yourself but ain’t no body got patience for that. At least not this girl.
Here is a closer look to what these grid makers look like. There are different types at Daiso to choose from. I just picked the most plain and clean looking one but there were ones with flower cutouts and such.
Pick a container or tray you would like to store your compact with. I bought mine from Daiso for $2. Also make sure to bring a BB cushion so you can measure the tray out and see how many cushions it can store. I didn’t bring one when I went, silly me, so I just eye balled it and prayed that it will work HAHA.
Now do the same, but this time put as many cushions you can fit to see how many rows you need. I thought I could make it into 8 rows, but in the end it was too tight so I could only make it into 7 rows.
And a birds eye view. I now store this in my vanity drawer and don’t have to worry about them sliding around. I even place the refills on this tray so I don’t forget I got a refill as well, which I actually did for a long time until I did some winter cleaning and found them laying around haha.
I didn’t end up using all three of packs of the partitions. I only used up two of them but you can always make a DIY lipstick holder for your drawers, so nothing goes to waste. Plus, I bought an extra one just in case since I didn’t want to waste time and go back again.
Anyways, that is it for this DIY post. Let me know if you guys made this for yourself and tag me on Instagram if you did or even comment down below and tell me how it was for you.
