Cosmetics Station / Craft Desk Tidy using the new Xyron Creative Station and DCWV

My daughter has is crazy about make-up and is constantly showing me those fancy acrylic make-up stations that the pro make-up artist use, not to mention a few celebs.  Have you seen how much they cost, they are so expensive.  I told her I would make something for her but have been putting it off for a while but this week the new Xyron Creative Station arrived and I though that it was the perfect time to get started on the project.

The new Xyron Creative Station is AMAZING, can you believe that this machine takes BOTH the 9" and the 5" refills, its super sleek, looks so chic and is an essential piece of kit for your craft stash.  The machine will be available from June in the USA, UK and Europe release dates to be confirmed.

I made a short YouTube video introducing the new Xyron Creative Station, you can view it here.

Right onto the project and here is the Cosmetic Station / Craft Tidy.  Choosing the paper was left to my daughter and she wanted to use the jelly bean print from the DCWV 'The Sweet Stack'.  I'll be making another one of these very soon for my craft room but can't decide between the 'Tres Chic' or the 'Ciao Bella' DCWV Stacks.

So here it is, the Cosmetic Station / Craft Tidy.  Below are the instructions for making your very own. I have used 5mm Foam Board.
