Staying organized just got a lot more fun with this cute DIY stenciled pouch we crafted – we’re using ours as a make-up bag, but the humble pouch can be used in countless ways. If the bottom of your handbag looks anything like some of ours around here (read: floating bobby pins, receipts and gum), corral all those goods in a pouch for stress-free organizing. If you’re a mom, this is a cute way to get all your little one’s supplies together – pick a color that contrasts with your baby bag to make it easy to find!
