Imagine this scene:  You’re running late, trying to get your hair done and makeup on, and you were supposed to be out the door five minutes ago.  In your half-panicked rush, you completely forget that your flat iron is still hot and you toss it in the cupboard.  Later that day, you make the horrifying discovery that the hot iron made contact with a bottle of mouthwash, the melted plastic resulting in a catastrophic mess.  Sounds like something that might happen to you?  Here’s an easy solution that will prevent such an incident from happening!  Jami from Creative Juices transformed a pot holder into a cute, practical sleeve for holding her flat iron.  It would also work for holding a curling iron!  [how to make a flat iron or curling iron holder]
