The clear tops to these COVERGIRL make-up containers can be created into whimsical paper weights.
You can create one in any style and use almost any scrap supplies you have on hand.
For the above paper weight, I washed and dried the clear part of the make-up container. I removed the sticker and used an adhesive remover to remove any leftover residue.
The backside of this particular one, is a used canning lid. I have sprinkled the white side with glue and glitter and allowed it to dry.
The back of the canning lid is covered with scrap material, attached with a thin layer of glue.
Using a strong, clear drying glue, attach items onto the canning lid and allow to dry.
Place a layer of glue around bottom edge of clear lid, and place down on top of canning lid. Allow to dry.
There will be a small edge of lid remaining. Use scrap cording or twine to cover the edge using glue. Allow to dry.
I used a scrap piece of twine that comes around our bales of straw. You could use anything that you prefer to jazz up our new piece of art.

There are so many ideas to make these.
Tip: Keep the bottom portion of the container, and use it in place of the canning lid. Place a few photos inside the opposite side, where the make-up applicator is stored. Remove the applicator sponge, wash and dry it, and glue in your photos. Or use that section of it to hide a key.
