Step 1:

First I drew out the outline of the shape I wanted for the organizer. I then cut it out with some scissors.

Step 2:

I painted the cartoon a light blue shade with a makeup applicator sponge.

Step 3:

Then, I cut out cardboard to fit inside the jug as compartments. I painted the cardboard the same shade of blue as the carton of milk.

Step 4:

I used the hot glue gun to glue the cardboard to the inside of the carton of milk. I cut apart hair ties to put around the top of the carton.

Step 5:

I hot glued the pink hair tie around the carton. I added glitter to the outer edge of the hair tie. I also cut out a piece of paper and glued it to the carton.

Step 6:

I organized my supplies inside the jug.
