I was doing a bit of playing around with my homemade magnetic palettes late last week, and got chatting on FaceBook with a friend on how I made them, so the next logical step was to to a how to blog on them :) Now the idea of handmade magnetic palettes is not new, and you can probably google it and get tons of results on how to make them, but this is my take on them anyway.
Firstly let me show you my homemade ones. The palettes themselves are those tin collectible DVD cases that you sometimes get when buying a special edition DVD, these 2 are ones I just had lying around at home. The individual pans inside them are all colours of my own creation that I pressed simply so that they didn't take up stacks of room in my makeup drawers and to tell the truth, I kinda like being able to flip open a palette and see all my choices in one go. Makes it easier to choose what to use.
So to start off you need something to use as a palette, I picked up this kids pencil case for $5 from the reject shop. It has 3 tiers inside so its perfect.
Let me know if you give it a try and how you went with it :)
