When Andrew and I visited Palm Springs over the weekend as a post-birthday vacation, my suitcase was packed FULL, so I made these fun DIY fruit slice vitamin cases to carry my Nature Made® Gummies with me so I’d remember to take my daily vitamins without having to carry the full bottle on-the-go. I’ll gush about the mid-century modern beauty of Palm Springs another day. For now, let’s talk about the wonders of gummy vitamins.
You may remember me talking before about how hilariously terrible I am at swallowing pills. Seriously, I buy liquid versions of medicine whenever possible, so these Nature Made® Adult Gummies are a life savor for me, specifically the Multi for Her plus Omega-3s Adult Gummies, which provide an excellent source of vitamins A, C, D3, and E, plus key B vitamins and other important minerals like chromium and zinc. Two a day is all I need to make sure I get the necessary vitamins, so these vitamin cases I made using empty mint containers help me remember to take my vitamins, no matter what I’m up to or where I am for the day.
When I realized Nature Made® Adult Gummies were the perfect size for old mint containers, I drew inspiration from their fruity flavors to give the mint containers a citrus slice makeover with a little paint. Just like that, the empty containers were transformed into cute carrying cases that fit perfectly into my purse or overnight bag. This way, my scatter-brained self will be sure to take my vitamins every day! Not only are they great-tasting but they’re a convenient way for women to receive the daily nutritional support of a multivitamin, plus 60 mg of heart-healthy EPA and DHA omega-3s from fish oil, per serving.†
I also started taking Nature Made® Melatonin Adult Gummies to help me get a good night’s sleep, which helps a lot when the heat keeps me up during the summer months. Andrew and I both take melatonin gummies before bed. Nature Made® is “a gummy you can trust” and I appreciate knowing what’s in the vitamins I’m taking.
I popped by Walmart for a few of my usual supplies, including bottles of Nature Made® Multi for Her plus Omega-3s Adult Gummies and Melatonin Adult Gummies to pack in my new carrying cases so that I could easily take my daily multivitamins and melatonin gummies with me on-the-go and on weekend trips.
Now, here’s how to make your own fruit slice vitamin carrying case using an old mint container! You can see I made cases in yellow, orange and green to represent a lemon, orange and lime.
Time: 30 minutes
- Mint container, empty and washed
- Spray paint (yellow, orange, green)
- White paint
- Paint brush
- Multi for Her plus Omega-3s Adult Gummies or choice of Nature Made® Adult Gummies
Step 1: Remove the labels of mint containers and wash thoroughly.
Step 3: Once the spray painted has completely dried and is not longer tacky, use a pencil to outline six equal-sized triangles with the points facing the middle. If it helps, you can cut one out as a template to trace.
Step 4: Paint over the pencil lines with white paint. Once it begins to dry, paint a second coat. Then dip the other end of a paint brush in white paint and paint a dot in the middle of the container.
They came out really cute and fit enough gummies to last me through several days, which made them perfect for a long weekend trip or simply storing in my purse so I can eat them even after I’ve already left the house because, let’s face it, I am a pretty forgetful person. Check them out for yourself!
