I really wanted to build something to hold my Ultra Pearl Mania jars from NYX. So, I did! I'm supes new so be gentle Cheesy

See, I saved the cool little shipping box that I had received my latest shipment in.


I took it apart, and cut off the extra portion, so I'd only keep the boxy shape.


Now, with that extra piece that I cut off, I took the edge that looked like a triangle and cut about three and a half inches above it to create a shelf.


See how it folds naturally? Well, the triangle part is the support for the shelf. So, I took my hot glue gun and attached it to the the boxy shape I already hot glued some corners together of:


I messed up here: I realized too late that I wanted to have a second shelf, and I had already glued the first one, so I couldn't make an exact "copy" of the first shelf. So I took the extra piece that I was left with and tried to best guess and cut myself another triangle 3 1/2" shelf. But, since it was a straight piece of cardboard, I had to score it with a pen before I could fold it:


Then, it was off to paint!


I love the beach and all kinds of underwater stuff, so I went outside, collected some random twigs and rocks, took some of my plastic jewels, and hot glued together a little ocean action:


I also took a darker color and used a sponge to make it look textured. Finally, I sealed it all with Mod Podge Sparkle because I KNOW myself and don't want it getting wet and ruined. Here's the finished product:

Shame you can't tell it's all sparkly Sad
Yay for creativity! Hope you enjoyed it, and I apologize if I didn't explain it all too well. Thanks!

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
