Mother and artist Elizabeth Burchiel runs a Facebook page known as Painted Dragon where she regularly shares pictures of her murals for children as well as her amazing face painting skills. However, it was a simple nappy trick she shared that has mums across the world in awe.

In a recent post, she explained how she managed to save herself a LOT of hassle when it comes to changing nappies.

“So I have to share this really cool diaper bag hack I accidentally discovered,” she starts.

“I know it’s not face painting related, but I’m pretty sure I have a few moms following that could use this. I also dropped a roll of doggie bags in the bottom for dirty diaper and clothes.”
