AND now..i’m going to finally get around to posting my last two ikea ten challenge projects!

first up:

night light

this one is a random one.. i really wanted to show the versatility of these boxes. i thought the lids would be cute frames..

and you could totally poke holes with a drill and make a night light.. glow in the dark

last but not least…

a travel first aid kit…
first aid kit

is it just my kids that think that a bandaid is a cure all.

“my arm just fell off…i need a bandaid!”

when i run out i’m in trouble! so i love this portable version.
travel first aid kid

and don’t just think medicine..i’ve got safety pins..rubber bands (hair and regular) paperclips..flashlight..nail clippers, tweezers, mini scissors! eye drops ( i ALWAYs need them! i’ve always got something in my eye, um…extra binky if you are in that phase of your life thankgoodnessiamnot….

travel aid kit i even saw an idea to put suckers in there..so the kids gets a treat after you bandage them up!!!!

so here you go..if we haven’t given you some inspiration and you DON’t feel the need to run out and buy these dragan boxes..

maybe you need some medicine. i just happen to have some right here in my first aid kit!!!
