Bobby Pin Magnetic Strip

I have a bobby pin addiction.  Around my house, you can likely find a bobby pin in every room, but I can never seem to find one when I need it.  I have less of an addiction to ponytail holders, since my hair is shorter now, but I still have an abundance of those as well.  So when I saw this idea on pinterest, I knew I had to implement it immediately.  And, since we're already doing some master bathroom renovations, I thought this was the perfect opportunity!

I wanted to "pretty it up" - you know, make it something where I would smile each morning when I opened the medicine cabinet.  So, I pulled some supplies from my sewing room and made this with ZERO out of pocket cost!  :)

Here's the detailed instructions:

I used a piece of cardboard from an animal cracker box.  It measures 11" x 3" (approximate).

I stuck magnetic strips to the cardboard.

Then, I wrapped the entire piece in pretty scrapbook paper and taped it down with clear packing tape.

I had these two red knobs from an old piece of furniture.  They had been sitting in the garage for years. I removed the screws from the back and used E-6000 to glue them to the paper.

I stuck it to the medicine cabinet with sticky back velcro.

So, any ideas what comes across my face when I open my medicine cabinet?

Photos of the finished master bath coming soon.  Here's a sneak preview....
