Why spend the money on generic pen cups or a make up brush cup when you can take an empty paint container, clean it up and add a bit of fun to it.
If you don't paint; any empty jar would work, of course.

(Except I had an empty white paint container.)
Step 2: After your jar is completely clean, choose how you want to decorate it. I chose the simple route and just tied a ribbon around it and put a dab of glue behind the bow to secure it even more. You can glitter-ize it (surprisingly I did not do this! ...yet), add little jewels around it, you can even paint it! I liked how this jar was kind of a 'foggy' see-through and I wanted to show this.

The flower pen in the cup is found here.
|Now my make up brushes are shorter than normal ones, so that it why it looks ..well, short. |
I might add some glitter to this cup because of that reason. I'll keep you updated!!
Goes well with the Cinderella water globe in background, huh? ;)
