Organize your hair accessories!

Do you waste money buying duplicate
hair accessories simply because they
are scattered all over the place?  

If you find yourself having a difficult time finding
a hair accessory when you need it, this simple
solution may be just what you need!

paper to decorate them . . . or paint them.

Do you have any tips on 
organizing hair accessories?
