Baby Wipes Container Altered

Thought I'd show you my latest altered project...

One item that I use each time I'm working on my scrapping projects is baby wipes..
they help to clean up glue, paint & glitter messes. 
But the container was not pretty to look at so I fixed it up.


I hot glued some fabric that I got at Wal-Mart around the container...
(this project took maybe 15 minutes at the most)


I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Blossom Four die cuts 
to make this flower...


Added a coordinating brad and it turned out very pretty!


To hide any imperfections around the rim, I hot glued on some ribbon around the the top and the bottom...


and now that it's all pretty and very handy for using...

How fun would this be to get one as a baby gift?!?

I'm linking to these parties....

My goodness what you can do with just anything. It would be so cute to hold a gift card or something small.

What a great idea! I'm going to have tons of those lying around pretty soon!

Who would ever guess what this beauty holds?! I use baby wipes too and now need to step up my game on their storage!

This is such a great idea! I use baby wipes to, and usually end up with random packets all over the house! I'll 'borrow' the container from the boys room and pretty it up for my craft desk, thanks for sharing.

What a clever idea...I never would have thought of it! I no longer have to use baby wipes (thank goodness), but I do use pet wipes to clean my dog's paws. I think I'll make something similar for him only in dog paw prints. I know he'll appreciate it! ;)

Cute cute cute! I am making a gift for a momma to be and this will HAVE to be included! Thanks for sharing through the Goodies link party!

Cindy said...

Such a cute idea. I use baby wipes constantly in my crafting, but never thought to reuse the container like this.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I will be going through your older posts to see what else you've done.

Ooo la la! That definitely beats that plain old containers we had around. Great transformation!
