Your breath is fresh, now recycle that Tic Tac box into a bobby pin keeper!

This project is made from a simple Tic Tac box, but its usefulness is exceptional when it comes to organizing your beauty supplies. Bobby pins fit perfectly in a Tic Tac box (who knew?), and this project uses that fact to its advantage. With just a few adornments, the box is transformed from a completely utilitarian mini-mint holder to a stylish, bling-accented organizational tool.
The bobby pin is a beauty staple for taming the frizzies and creating the perfect updo. This project ensures that you’ll never be at a loss for them again. The Tic Tac box bobby pin keeper will look equally pretty on the bathroom shelf or serve a solid purpose inside your purse. Wherever it’s placed, it will be easily identifiable and smartly glam.

Instructions
1. Assemble your supplies on the work surface.
2. After removing all labeling, coat the entire exterior of the Tic Tac box with the chalk paint using the paintbrush, except for the top and bottom sections. Allow the paint to dry.
3. Take the sheet of mini-rhinestones and extract one with the tweezers. Affix it to the top of the box front.
4. Continue sticking the rhinestones on this section of the box and place them in a triangle pattern: The top line should have about 8 rhinestones, the next row down should have 6, then 4, then 3, then 1 at the bottom.
