BENGALURU: The biggest challenge in organising cosmetics is where to tuck eye pencils and lip pencils. It is similar to what one faces with toothbrushes and tongue-cleaners. Sadly products related to organising are too focused on plastic boxes and cylindrical containers. I recently found how a foot long ribbon and sometimes a small bangle or bracelet can do a lot to help with organising the pencil-stick kind of paraphernalia.
Materials: needle, thread, scissors, ribbon, glue gun

Insert the ribbon into the ring and bring it over. Spare an inch of the inserted or protruding bit and pin it up against the longer part of the ribbon. Now grab a spool of matching thread, a large sized needle, and hem the piece up. I used four strands of thread to give it the necessary strength.

Once the hemming is done, leave a five-inch gap from the point of hemming downwards on the ribbon. Gently use your fingers to create a fold, such that you can insert your index finger into the fold’s hole. Pin it up and stitch. If you want to insert and store wider objects such as combs, fold accordingly.
Create three such folds or more and stitch up. Once this bit is done, you may trim the length of the ribbon holder, by cutting it. Fold the end inwards and hem-sew.

You have the option of sticking the finished piece on a cardboard or hard surface and hanging it. Or simply find a hook on the wall and hang it up.
I tucked in my toothbrush and tongue cleaner, and a make up brush.  This hanger is useful for storing your child’s head or hairbands, colour pencils, marker pens and the likes.
