I couldn't figure out where to post this, but I wanted to get it on the boards because I just love it so much!

I've fallen into this rut lately where I have to justify things I want to make and I'm not having as much fun crafting because of it. However, I saw a picture on Instagram for a bobby pin case out of a Tic-Tac container and new I needed to make something for my large bobby pins right away!

This project is so easy that you don't even need instructions. If you really want them, or you want to read about what I used, you can visit my blog here: http://fanofstuff.com/5-minute-bobby-pin-case

But I think you can figure it out with these pictures.

You can use any kind of inexpensive, decorative tape so this is great for washi tape fiends. Plus, depending on what you want to store, you can use any size or shape container you have on hand. I used an empty bay leaf spice container.

I almost exclusively use the large sized bobby pins so this was the perfect size and now I don't have the pins all over my vanity. Plus, I got to use my fancy tape and finally made a craft without a huge internal conversation. Yay crafting!

Sometimes the simplest things are the best!  Love that you recycled something and made something not only useful, but pretty!

Craftsters are just so lucky to be able to see things with artistic eyes! Grin

It's simplistic yet cute and probably pretty quick to finish. Next time I get Tic-Tacs I'll have to remember to save the container.

Love this!  It would be so much easier than trying to stick them back on the cardboard while pulling another several out of my hair  Smiley
