Organizing Makeup with Style: A Monogrammed Makeup Case

Hey, y'all!  Do you jump on the whole "I want to be more organized for the new year" bandwagon?  I have a front seat on the wagon every year, but somewhere along the way I always fall off.  This year, I decided that I wanted to stay on the wagon for a while.  I'm pretty unorganized in general, but one important part of my life REALLY lacking in the organization area was my makeup.  I just love makeup, but my makeup organization?  Less than stellar.  So I recently used my Silhouette to personalize myself a makeup case worthy of my sparkly eye shadow and red lipstick!  Check out my monogrammed makeup case, and stick around until the end of the post to see thirty-two other organization projects using the Silhouette!
Personalize a plain makeup case with a Silhouette-cut monogram and quote.
I began the makeup organization process by purchasing a clear makeup case from Walmart.
A plain makeup case just waiting on a makeover.
It was cute as is, but I knew it needed some of my personality infused in it, so I turned to my trusty Silhouette.
A monogram and quote designed in the Silhouette program.
I created a monogram for the top of the case using a free monogram app on my phone.  I emailed me monogram to myself and traced it with the my Silhouette software.  I sized it to fit the middle of my makeup case.  I created the fun little quote using the fonts Catalina Avalon Slab and Dality Alternative.  I sized it to fit the space on the back of the makeup case.
Use Silhouette-cut vinyl to personalize a plain makeup case.
I cut the monogram and quote from pink Oracle 651 vinyl.
Adhere vinyl to a plain makeup case to personalize it.
I used transfer paper to apply the quote to the back.  (Tip: You can use an old plastic card to smooth your transfer tape on your vinyl.)
Adhere a vinyl monogram to a plain makeup case to personalize it.
And I did the same with the monogram on the top.
Organize your makeup with style in this monogrammed makeup case.
I just LOVE how the makeup case turned out.  It's the perfect size to hold the makeup I use daily.

If you know me, you know the quote on the back is perfect for me because I just LOVE lipstick, especially bright lipstick.

I smile every morning when I get this cute little case out, and my makeup is much easier to use now that I can see it all. And just as promised, I have lots of other organization inspiration for you today in the form of this clickable collage filled with projects from my Silhouette Challenge buddies.  Check out thirty-two other organization ideas below.
