DIY: MARK CD eyeshadow palette ^_^

When boredom hits, anything is possible ^_^ I made an eyeshadow palette out of a CD case. I had a bunch of I-Mark eye shadows that needed a home and at the same time, my mom had so many empty CD cases laying around the house. A light bulb went on my head!!

What I used:
-an empty CD case
-a cut-out of a photo from an old Mark catalog.
-scissors
-soft cardboard or poster board (optional)
-magnet sheets (I used those thin magnets on our refrigirator)

Photobucket
-I used my mom's empty Alabama #1 Hits cd ..YEAHH!!

Photobucket
-I removed the front and back cover and the middle part

Photobucket
-It  looked something like this ^_^

Photobucket
-I looked for cool photo that I will use for the front and back cover. Since I'm going to put my I-Mark eyeshadows, I went ahead and chose a photo of Mark eyeshadows from an old Mark catalog.

Photobucket
-I placed the empty CD on top of the photo and, I trace around it and cut it. 
-the cut-out photo will be bigger than the CD case so I had to cut it once again to fit the CD.

Photobucket
-I pasted the photo underneath a poster board so the photo will be firm enough to be used as a cover.
-I did the same thing for the back cover.

Photobucket
-I got some magnet sheets. I guess that's what you call these. But i got these on our fridge lol They're very thin magnets with ads in the front. The car shaped is from a carpet cleaning company. It's funny right?

Photobucket
- I taped the magnets inside. The I-Mark eyeshadows are magnetized so this will work.

Photobucket
- I placed my I-Mark eyeshadows in their new home ^_^

Photobucket
- 12 eye shadows fit inside. I left spaces in between so I can easily remove them.

Photobucket
-I turned it over and whew...im sure glad the eyeshadows didn't fall lol

Photobucket
-next to my medium size Mark palette. I could have gotten a bigger palette but eh?

Photobucket
-See, I can remove it easily.

Its so pretty and I love it.

I hope this gives you an idea on how to make your own eye shadow palette using what you already have at home. Ofcourse you can do whatever you want. You can place other brand of eyeshadows and use a photo you like. You dont have to necessarily do it the way I did it. Let your creative juices flow!!

Have a great one readers!

I-Mark eyeshows are available at my e-botique

I did it this the past year; 'cause I have different un-expensive palettes that I use sometimes, and I depot and use a CD case, 'cause i see on youtube this version but with DVD ones.. and really I got more Cd's empties LOL.. I don't use magnetic sheets I put some crazy loka glue :D and works forever but works.
