Hi,

Story:
I wear makeup - don't we all Roll Eyes - and at the end of the day when I take my makeup off I use remover wipes...but they are always sold in plastic packets...that make a lot of noise, which for me is really bad because I live with my parents and when I go to bed late - 3/4 in the morning - I don't want to wake them up, and when the rest of the house is silent and I go to open the little packet it makes a huge noise. So I needed to find a solution, a silent solution... Wink

This is what I came up with,
Front open

Front Closed

Back


Here in Belgium (I don't know where else they do this) but they sell these wet wipes for kids, that they can use when they learn how to use the big peoples toilet.
And this was originally the holder - thats why the bright red and green - on the top it originally had this weird crocodile dude...he could have been a tortoise, I wasn't sure....and I didn't want that on the top because well, next to the dude it said "toilet wipes" and he was trying to wipe his own butt! Grin Wink I didn't think it was a good idea to keep that on the top so I covered all the labels with one of my favorite things...tattoo flash!
I still need to cover it in something to protect the images, but for the rest it does the trick, its silent and so far keeps the wipes from drying out.


Let me know what you think...

What a great idea!  They sell a similar product in the states, so I know what you're talking about (and they come in a similar box).  Very creative!

i really like that idea they have that stuff like that here too but in barney colors (purple and green)

I found the Tattoo Flash on Deviantart.com

The one on top is " Flash sheet nr 1 by BettieBoner"
The bomb on the back is "Tattoo Flash Sheet No. 3 by ArtworkByGeo"
And last but not least, the planes are " Tattoo Flash by ugly guy"

As far as I can remember those are the names...
