Get Organized with Burlap!

Here’s a little project I made when I did my closet redo. I made a few more the other day. This is a stylish way to keep your jewelry or other small items organized. It would also be great in an office to keep small things like — paper clips, staples, push pins or rubber bands organized.
I used the same technique that I did when I made my burlap magnet boards, but I cut the boards narrower and then attached magnetic containers I found at IKEA. 
I added a little bling with sparkly buttons. I also cut out circles of scrapbook paper and attached it to the back of the tins to coordinate with my closet and office. I used glue dots so if I ever want to change out the paper — it will be easy to do.
If you want to make some, just follow my tutorial HERE.
