I found this cute little box on clearance at Michaels (I believe...) several years ago. I loved that it was a little blank slate, so I bought it with no project in mind.
It wasn't until I discovered that I had nowhere to stash my medicine and bandaids that I decided what this little box's purpose would be. My medicine and first aid has always lived in the kitchen, so I decided to decorate my box to match my bumblebee decor.
If you're wondering why my medicines live in the kitchen and not the bathroom medicine cabinet, I've heard many times that the humidity in bathrooms is very bad for most medications and that they should be stored somewhere with a more stable temperature. I haven't found a home for them in my new place yet, but I think that they will move to the second floor closet as opposed to the kitchen, as it has the least amount of temperature fluctuation.
I always have a nice collection of colorful paper, so finding some cute yellow ones to glue on my little box. I also have a nice collection of buttons, which got glued to the top:
And the final result was this:
Pretty cute right? These days it's more of a first aid kit, since my medicine collection has expanded from just a bottle of ibuprofen and anti-allergy pills and no longer fits in here. But it's perfect for bandaids, gauze, tape, and antiseptic creams. And it's adorable.
