It seems like we blow through a million diapers a week, let alone the baby wipes that are thrown away and forgotten. Instead of tossing the box the wipes come in, save them for these cool crafts!
Card Game Storage
You're all sitting around the table, ready to play a board game and you find out that some of the pieces are missing!

Never Lose Pieces Again
Now you can enjoy a family game night without improvising because of the missing game pieces, cards and fake money!
