How to Make

  1. Use a 3D glitter pen to write ‘Mum’s Make-up’ across the middle of the pencil case.
  2. Using scissors, cut out some make-up container shapes from self-adhesive felt and stick a large jewel to the middle of each with glue dots to secure.
  3. Add markings to the containers using strips of different coloured felt or glitter pens.
  4. Cut out lipstick, eye-shadow and brush shapes from sticky felt. Make a mascara wand by clipping little triangles out of an oval shape.
  5. Stick the completed make-up shapes around the words on the pencil case.
  6. Add extra decoration with glitter and extra large jewels.
