Patterned Paper (as many as you like, I used one 12x12 and a few scraps)
Solid Colored Cardstock (again, as many as you like, I used scraps of 5 colors)
QK Dies (I used convertible KS-0995, double star RS-0617, Blossom Classic Alphabet BLOSSOM-G, and nesting circles CC-CIRCLES-01)
Any other embellishments you want to add (I used buttons and thread)
Make your pattern. Simply lay a thin sheet of office paper over the sides and top of your box, then carefully trace the edges of the box. Cut out and retrace until you have exactly the right dimensions. This step is the hardest part of the project—it took me three tries to get it right
Cut your patterned paper. I wanted to keep my box fairly simple, so I cut the front, back and sides from the same pattern. I used a different pattern for the top.
Modge Podge the paper to each side and top. Allow a few minutes to dry (I waited about 15 minutes)
NOTE: If you want to distress the edges with ink do it before you Modge Podge your paper. If you want to outline the papers like I did, wait until step seven.
While you are waiting for the Modge Podge to dry, cut out your QK shapes. I cut the word "Wipes" from Blossom Classic (I am using this font throughout my little one's room, so I wanted everything to be the same font.) I cut the convertible to match the patterned paper. The wheels were a little bigger on the paper, so I used nesting circles to create larger wheels. I then cut stars to mimic the paper as well. For the top I used the nesting circles again to create a little monogram spot. I added the outside of the double star and another star to decorate the "J".
Now here comes the fun part! Use Modge Podge to adhere all of your QK shapes.
Wait until it dries completely. This part is crucial! If you rush to the next step you will ruin your project!
Put on the finishing touches. I outlined some of my patterned paper with a black Sharpie (you must do this after the Modge Podge dries. If you do it before the Modge Podge dries, it will smudge your marker lines). I also hot-glued some buttons onto the stars.
NOTE: I pre-threaded my buttons before gluing them onto the stars.
People thought I was crazy for doing this, but it really makes the diaper box a part of the room décor instead of an eye sore! I also decorated one for a little friend of ours who was starting kindergarten. I filled it with school supplies for her homework (crayons, pencils, erasers, etc.) She loved having a personalized box to keep her homework supplies away from her younger siblings. The best part was that she didn't know I repurposed a diaper wipe box!
Thanks to our designer Maegen Jenne. She did such a great job with a perfect idea for any woman with wipes! That means mostly all of us. Watch for more ideas from our design team to come!
