Are you tired of constantly losing your impossible-to-find bobby pins? Not to worry – you can tackle this problem by making a quick and easy DIY bobby pin holder! Today’s inspiration came from a handy item you might have in your own kitchen: a magnetic knife strip. To get started on making your own bobby pin holder, here is what you’ll need:

  • mirror medicine cabinet
  • ruler
  • adhesive-backed magnetic strip – use a strip that is at least 1 inch wide
  • scissors
  • foam mounting squares
  • scrapbook paper in a pattern or print of your choice

What to do:

  1. Open your medicine cabinet and use a ruler to measure the door’s width.
  2. Grab your scissors and cut a length of magnetic strip that is at least one inch shorter than the width of the cabinet door.
  3. Cut a strip of scrapbook paper that is about a half-inch longer and wider than the magnetic strip. Cover the front of the magnetic strip with the piece of scrapbook paper. Fold over any excess paper and press it into the adhesive backing of the magnetic strip to keep it in place.
  4. Use the foam mounting squares to mount your magnetic strip to the back of the cabinet door.
  5. Add your bobby pins and enjoy never losing another one again!
