When you see a cool container, are you like me and have a hard time throwing it out, knowing it MUST be good for something! Certainly there is a way to up-cycle the container to keep it out of the trash!
Well this is how I feel about the containers the Cascade dish washing tablets come in.
I have used it for my homemade dry laundry detergent until I found a bigger and better container.
Then one day after my daughter and her friends had been in my car, I noticed they left so many tissues and wrappers on the floor. (Pretty girls but slobs!) So I decided I needed some sort of garbage container. I was just going to put it in there as is but since I seem to have a surplus of scrapbook paper, a light bulb went off.
This little project took me literally 10 minutes!
I didn’t even remove the labels.
I cut the paper to size. Added Mod Podge to both the container and the back of the paper. I lined it up and pressed out the bubbles then added a top layer of Mod Podge.
Now it is a matter of getting them to USE it!
What containers have you re-purposed?
I LOVE comments! So drop me a line!
