Now how many of us could use these! They are so expensive at the stores. Jill gives us all the details at her page One Good Thing. By Jillee. It was so good of her to share. I can think of several places these would be good at. From the trash can to a diaper pail if you have a baby in the house, or I am gonna put one under the seat of my car and in the trunk.They seem to be simple to make and you could make any shape you wanted. To go directly to the recipe go here. Be sure while you are there to like Jill on Facebook and follow her on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or subscribe by e-mail. All links are on her homepage at the top right of the page.
Thanks Jill.

There is another version made in a muffin pan you will find here.
