Today I have a little DIY project for you. This project was born out of looking at the Z Palettes. I realized that I had entirely too many single shadows, but I didn't want to pay $20 for the Z Palette. So I went to YouTube to see what people were doing for a DIY Z Palette, most were using a DVD case for theirs; however, I felt that it would be too flimsy to keep my shadows in good condition.
So with that in mind, I went to Hobby Lobby and saw these jewelry boxes in the cardboard craft supplies for $3.99 each. They came with a ring holder in them, and I just pulled it out. I already had black paint, and I used chalkboard paper that was on sale for 99 cents each for the top, so I would be able to identify each palette. From Wal-Mart I picked up these kids craft magnetic sheets and cut them to fit in the bottom of the box.
The next thing I did was paint the rest of the box black, inside and outside. While the paint was drying, I used my straightener and wax paper to depot my shadows. If you guys want a video on how to depot shadows, leave me a comment below and I will be more than happy to make one for you. Once the shadows were out and cooled, I took small pieces of magnets and stuck those to the bottom, then labeled each shadow.
Overall, I am really happy with how these turned out. All of my single shadows are easy to find now, and it cost me about the same that it would for one Z Palette!
Again if y'all want a video on how to depot shadows, let me know!
