Here is what You will need to get started:
empty makeup compact
pretty scrapbook paper
printed vintage valentine
adhesive pearls and mini flowers
little chocolates – I used M&M’s
First clean up an old makeup compact, If it’s not the color you want, you can paint your compact first.
Now, cut pretty scrapbook paper to cover the top of your compact. You can layer several decorative strips of paper to add more dimension.
Take a small paper doily or another piece of scrapbook paper and cut a small square. Adhere the valentine to the square and adhere to the scrapbook paper.
Adhere to the top of the compact.
On the inside of the compact, cut more scrapbook paper to cover mirror. Add a cute vintage label or the type of candy you are giving. Add adhesive pearls along the top and a small flower in the corner.
Cut scrapbook paper to fit into the compact’s makeup sections.
Fill sections with small candies or chocolates.

A clean house BUT not one single Mary Kay compact in sight to be able to recreate this awesome little craft.. ::sniffles::
