I made this make-up bag for a sweet girl who just turned 15. She’s not all that into make-up, but I filled it with girly products to get her started, just in case she changes her mind (which of course she will). It’s made out of paper, clear vinyl, and the inside is lined with oil cloth. I wasn’t sure about how the paper would work out. I’ve used it with wallets, but they stay flat and uncrinkled. This project couldn’t be done without turning it inside-out, so I was worried. But the crinkles look pretty cool. I’m glad this worked, because I’m always jealous of the scrapbookers’ options compared to fabric options. The papers available are gorgeous–pretty patterns, nice materials, lovely color schemes; it’s just not the same at the fabric stores.
