I came across this project on cremedelacraft.com and I had to try it out for myself. I thought it was a great way to organize all my makeup brushes because they normally find their way to the bottom of my handbag where they eventually stick to a piece of gum.

This project is very easy and took me about 20-30 minutes to finish. I got all my supplies at Michaels, except for the sushi mat which I ordered on Amazon. All in all, I spent around $6 on this project.

Enjoy making this super handy makeup holder!

Step 1: What You'll Need

1 sushi mat
1 elastic fabric band (I used less than a yard)
1 glue gun
1 pair of scissors
1 button
1 foot of string or yarn
<p>Love this! Does it roll up for storage? </p>
great :-) the first thing i will try next weekend ;-)
Cool idea! I don't really make up but is also perfect for brooches or like pencils holder!
What a great idea! I just got a ton of new brushes so this would be a great project to get them all organized. Thanks for sharing.
This looks like an easy fun project I can do with my 7 year old who actually asked me this morning on the way to 1st grade for make up, maybe we'll do colored pencils instead!
Such an awesome idea, and just in time for the holidays! I know what &quot;crafty gift&quot; I'll be making for my sisters! Thanks for sharing! &lt;3
This is so cool and cute and as previously mentioned a very approachable project for a child. Thanks for sharing. I am definitely going to make one of these.
This is cool! Good thinking!
Thanks tawnydog!
Clever. It should work for pens too.
Cool! Where can I buy this? Seems like a great stocking stuffer. Well done!
It would be a great stocking stuffer, better than the toothbrushes I always get in my stocking!
My wife is going to love this! Great project!
I showed this to my daughter to make for her mom for Christmas.
I hope your wife likes it. It is a great travel companion and I'm sure your daughter will enjoy making it. :-)
This is genius! I love the way sushi mats look and this is a super clever approach to organizing your make up brushes. I think I am going to store my knitting needles and crochet hooks this way. <br/><br/>Great job! And thank you for sharing your project :D
Thanks so much and I hope it works well for your knitting needles and crochet hooks. I didn't realize how many uses this could have!
