Who knew wipes could look so good....

Another project done! I have seen wipe containers redone in many different ways...and decided to try my hand at one. I am hoping it's not too feminine for his nursery. So I tried to keep it as simple as possible.


Supplies needed:
1 Container of Wipes
2-3 Pieces of Coordinating scrapbook paper
Hot glue
Mod Podge
Ribbon
Button
Step 1: Make a pattern for the the top and sides of your wipes case. The sides are the easiest. I just freehanded the sides...but the top is a whole other problem.
To do this I put a piece of paper on top of the wipes case and used a crayon to get the outline of the wipes. I then cut out my pattern. It worked like a charm.
Step 2: Mod podge your pieces of paper onto the tops and sides of your container.
Step 3: Hot glue ribbon around your edges.
Step 5: Embellish. I just cut out a piece of paper and then layered it with ribbon and a paper flower.

Who knew wipes could look so cute? :)

I am willing to risk my husband's ridicule that I have too much time on my hands because it's MUCH cuter than the Toy Story Special Edition wipes box that is currently on display in our family room (I have a changing station downstairs so I am not running up to our son's room all day)

What a great idea. Who knew that a box of wipes could actually be a great addition to the nursery decor! :)
