DIY Bobby Pin Case | Hungry Heart

I don’t know about you, but my bobby pins are constantly all over the place. They seem to be everywhere, but are still nowhere to be found when I need them.

The classic solution is well known but clever enough to be repeated: Tic Tac boxes! I’ve never been a fan of the Tic Tac candy, but the box it comes in is the perfect size for keeping bobby pins (and ribbons too by all means).

I put some fabric tape on my Tic Tac box to make it look a bit prettier and this could be the easiest DIY I’ve ever done. But I made a step by step tutorial for you anyway:

DIY Bobby Pin Case Tutorial |



A Tic Tac box, scissors and washi tape / fabric tape.

How to:

  1. Eat the candy! =)
  2. Remove the label from the Tic Tac box.
  3. Put washi/fabric tape along the upper edge of the box…
  4. …and along the lower edge.
  5. Fill the box with bobby pins. Simple as that!
