New packaging for baby soap

This is my new packaging for baby soaps,I wanted to have a soap dish for the flannel to sit on but I couldn't find any that were in the price range that I wanted so I managed to find some plastic containers that looked a bit like a bath and the flannel  sits
on top I think they are ok,and they may sell,
I seem to spend most of my time thinking up new ideas,and never quite getting it right,I have dozens of  
Crafts that I have started and never got round to finishing before another pops into my head
