Miniature trash can from a pill bottle
Ginny brings us this ingenious miniature trash can out of a aspirin bottle with Mod smorgasbord. No more tangled shreds in the bottom of the bag!
for This funny little idea that wrangles up all garbage and makes it easy to create, if you can a larger. Plus – it’s free if you Mod smorgasbord and a napkin on the hand. I'll tell Ginny you all.
Hello fans of the Mod-rock smorgasbord! I’m Ginny from organizing Homelife. I was so excited when Amy invited me to guest post on your awesome blog! You’s all about the creative ideas, and I’m so excited to have my purse trash can idea with you. To make it’s easy and a great way to re-purpose a bottle of old medicine.
I don't know about you, but to keep my handbag clean and organized is a challenge. Receipts, gum wrappers, tissues, notes, etc. damage in a very short period of time.can take, and devastating br>Obviously, if I'm near a trash can I will use it, but there are many times, if I put a piece of garbage and nowhere to be. So, what can I do to throw unless it's in my bag? Ugh.
all on the bottom of my handbag. At one point I added "clean out purse" to my weekly cleaning list in my home management binder.
Good idea? You Bet. I always do it? Uh, not really.
One day it dawned on me – I need a "trash can" for my purse! So, I embarked on the task of figuring out something. Here's my very own do – it-yourself handbag trash is what I came up with -. Here is how I did it!
miniature trash can
Start with a pretty napkin, Mod hodgepodge gloss, and a plastic container. I used a wide mouth bottle for my miniature trash can, ibuprofen. You want the mouth wide enough to throw so that it easily from the recycle bin. This bottle has worked great for me – to get tissue out of it.
Cover your work surface with newspaper. Measure the bottle area that you want to cover. I wrapped the napkin to put it, the design, as I wanted to. You can reduce the napkin on the size. I have both layers of the napkin at the same time.
you Cover the bottle with Mod-hodgepodge with a foam brush. To wrap the napkin and secure the end with more Mod-smorgasbord.
VERY CAREFULLY, they cover the napkin with Mod smorgasbord and dry. The napkin I used was pretty thin, so after it dried, I cut another layer of the napkin, to match the design and Mod Podged it over the first layer.
you could probably paper even a simple piece, for your first layer, if you do not have enough napkin. Otherwise, you may be able to see to the bottle to write on the napkin.
Amy’s note: another possibility is the color of the lettering with white acrylic paint if you happen to have some on hand!
let it dry for 20-30 minutes. I place it upright and moved it a couple of times, so it does not stick to the newspaper.
follow the same process you can cover the lid.
happened to The design on my napkin only to the size of the lid perfectly! I had not intended, but was really pleased with the result.
And here is the finished miniature trash can is! Light, easy to empty, and effective in keeping my bag clean and organized.
