Grocery Bag or Wipes Dispenser

I saw this idea for a handy "to go" container for plastic bags, on Pinterest a while ago from tatertotsandjello.com. I thought it would be a good idea for summer, especially for car trips, or wet suits and towels at the beach.  

What you need:
  • empty wipes container
  • about 12 plastic store bags
  • contact paper to decorate the outside 
Start by folding the bags in half and getting all the air out. Lay them out, overlapping each bag with the handles from the next bag. (You will have a long line of bags) Fold the handle of the first bag up(this will be the middle and the first bag you pull out) then roll them all together and put them in your container.  I wrapped mine with the adhesive contact paper I had left from my other projects, the original idea was to use fabric and mod podge to cover the outside, but I thought this was easier.

Now you have a handy, beautiful portable bag dispenser!  This container would also work for our Homemade Baby Wipes!
