nail polish case and its many updates, I've decided to do a tutorial! Some people asked me where to buy it, but that's the thing, I made it myself. I had an old aluminum suitcase laying around that used to be my grandpa's. He used it to transport CD's but he passed away a couple of years ago, so it felt like a tribute to my grandpa to re-purpose it. I also made this nail art supply case.
What you'll need:
- A suitcase
- Soft foam
- Any kind of fabric
- Elastic bands
- Head pins
You'll also need a craft knife, something to protect your work space, a pair of scissors, glue and a set of crafty hands.
Okay, let's get to work!
Take the measurements of your suitcase and write them down. The foam you're going to cut in the next step will be flexible so it doesn't have to be exact, but the fabric will also take up space and the more precise the size is, the better it'll fit.
There's a good chance that both sides of the suitcase don't have the exact same measurements, like mine, so take note of that.
When you have your foam ready, cut two pieces to the measurements of your suitcase. Note for the dummies: make sure you put something underneath so you don't cut into your table/flooring/anything else that you're working on. Unless that's already ruined ofcourse, then go right ahead!
When you've wrapped it, secure it with pins. Now you can just glue these two foam panels into your suitcase!
Let's continue to the next and final step!
Use your head pins to fasten your elastic band to the lining of the case you just made. Stick them in the foam like in the picture on the right. I do it like this, because the polish bottles need to be held snugly and that will put strain on this construction. The pins slip out too easily if you just use one.
Do this for the whole suitcase, or at least for all the bottles you want to carry in it, and you're done!
If anything is unclear or you have any questions, just leave a comment below and I'll answer it! Thanks for watching!
