Upcycle Baby Wipes Box


I (Steph) keep extra work gloves in an old baby wipes box. Because I use gloves for a lot of projects, I wanted to keep the box out in the open which meant the box needed to look a lot better! Mom likes a challenge so I thought I would let her work her magic and make the box cool enough to keep on my office shelf.
I headed to Mom’s house to give her the assignment and she was ready to go! She decided to

    I have used baby wipes boxes as well as dog food boxes (they are longer). I make my own greeting cards, so I needed a place to put all my ribbon. The boxes being long gave me a place to line the ribbon up so I could see them clearly and I covered them with scraps of paper left over from making cards. Sorry I don't have pictures to share but you get the idea I'm sure. Can't afford to buy all that I need, so this was convenient. Gotta be frugal you know.

    I love this idea, and it is a fantastic project. I would just include some organic baby wipes in it https://wotnot.com.au/collections/baby just to make it 100% eco friendly
