Hello fellow craftsters!

So I LOVE baby wipes! The are the best for taking off your makeup! Even if you don't wear makeup they are still great to go to sleep with a clean face. I use them every night and buy by the case, but I hated the baby label. I was totally bored last weekend  and decided to do something cool on it so I could actually display it....
I painted it and hot glued some rhinestones

I think it came out cute...what do you think?

That's so great. I use them for....er...other things for that clean fresh feeling. (They're way cheaper than feminine wipes.)  I really love this. Such a great idea and so pretty.

loving this! and yep, the wipes (and even the empty reusable boxes) are great for lots of things! I may have to doll up a few boxes myself now! Cheesy

Ohhh! That looks really cool. I like the paisley/mendhi-ish design. (I also use baby wipes for makeup removal and "feminine" wipes, and I never thought to deco the box. Smart! Smiley

What kind of paint did you use to stick to that slick plastic?

i use baby wipes for everything .. i nearly clean my entire house with the things.  i have a baby so i clean him with them too lol. but really they are great for wiping up spills in the kitchen, i clean my stove top after i cook with them, i swipe the dust off of shelves with them, i clean my kitchen table with them daily. theres nothing a baby wipe cant tackle.

i love the box, its so pretty.  way prettier than the boring wite.

Thanks guys! I used a sharpie marker to outline the whole thing and then filled them in with craft star craft (paint) markers. they are the same ones I used with my hanging baskets (check my profile pics of those). You can practically paint on anything with them! :-)

Thanks again for the compliments!  Grin

I saw the thumbnail and soooo had to click and see if it really was a baby wipes container! Awesome!

I really like the pattern/design you used for this, did you have any inspiration? Or was it straight out of your head?

That looks *great*! Very creative indeed.
