Craft Time! Recycle your Lilly Pulitzer Agenda

Hi friends!! I am so excited to share this post.  I’m not sure how many times I have thought “wow I really love all the fun pages and patterns that come in my agenda but what can I do with them”.  I go through and use my agenda throughout the year and then have nothing to do with all the super cute pages that are left over.  I’ve sat down to brainstorm and thought of a couple solutions to this.  Today I’m going to share with you how I used some pages for my agenda to spice up some plain white containers that I bought to organize my makeup.

First I went through my agendas that I no longer use.  I literally have three that I do not use anymore but was just waiting for the right time to use them honestly (not my best habit since they just sit on my shelf).  I went to Marshall’s and found two plain white containers that were only $5 so definitely in my budget.  I decided to use my Cricut Cutter to print out some letters and shapes from the Lilly pages.  You could definitely trace out letters or shapes from online so there’s no need for a Cricut Cutter, but if you have one then why not use it!

To secure them to the containers, I used Mod Podge.  Mod Podge is always my go to source for crafts and scrapbooking.  It dries clear so you don’t have to worry if you get it everywhere like me.  I decided to cut out my monogram and the word ‘LIVE’ to put on the larger container.  I also added a couple of little stars on the sides where there are not any words.

I decided to use the smaller container for bobby pins and hair ties and the larger one for my makeup brushes.  I love the way that it turned out!! I’m still trying to think of more DIY Lilly ideas so stay tuned for next time!

DIY Face Masks

Hey friends!  This past weekend my sisters and I decided to try out some DIY face masks and see how we liked them.  We all have different skin types so we tried out ones that are supposed to be better for one skin type over another.

Oatmeal Face Mask – This one was supposed to be best for oily skin.

We made this face mask for my sister who really struggles with oily skin so she gave this one a try.

Ingredients:

1 tsp of honey

1 egg yolk

Oatmeal (add as much as needed for desired thickness)

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

How we liked it:  This was not the best face mask.  The oatmeal didn’t really stick to your face no matter how much honey you added.  It also looked a little weird because the egg yolk made it extremely yellow.

Coffee Face Mask – This one was supposed to be best for having youthful skin

Ingredients:

2 tsp. coffee grounds

2 tsp. of honey

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

Coffee and Honey Face Mask

How we liked it: I loved this one! The coffee grounds really exfoliated my face and the smell isn’t bad at all if you’re a coffee lover.  It also stuck to my face really well so it didn’t make a huge mess while I was just relaxing with it on after.  My face was super smooth after using this!

 

Yogurt Face Mask – This one is supposed to give glowing skin

Ingredients:

2 tsp. lemon juice

2 tbsp. of yogurt

Yogurt and Lemon Face Mask

Face Mask

How we liked it:  My sister rated this one as ‘okay’.  It was extremely cold when she first put it on since we did take some yogurt directly out of the fridge for this.  It stayed in place though and didn’t make a huge mess which was nice though.

DIY Face Masks

We had so much fun trying out all of these different face masks.  I’m thinking about doing a post on DIY lip scrubs since who doesn’t love a little bit of inexpensive relaxing time?! Let me know if you have ever made any DIY face masks in the comments below!
