Anyone do anything interesting with these?   Other than using them as storage what else can be done?   TIA!

These make great storage for seed beads because you can see all your colors at a glance.  (leevalley.com sells them cheap in multiples in neat little aluminum boxes), but they also make sweet little teeny shadowboxes.  The clear glass lids make them very versatile.  I have glued tiny things or quotes inside them, and then mounted them on canvas.  They are incredibly tiny windows that are really interesting to look at.

Assuming they're reasonably clean you could line them with a square of pink tissue paper, fill them with sugared almonds or jellybeans, add a bow and give them as cute Xmas gifts Smiley

There's a huge thread about making spice containers out of these by attaching magnets to the back.

You can put tiny bits & bobbles in them and make little assemblage shrines.
