Yeah, midget, I know what you mean about the insides blue things. I already used them and made them into bracelets, but I was wondering what to with the actual lids?
oh, well... I can always throw them away.

Throw away!  The horror!

They would be perfect for abstract art, whether you put small photographs or pictures inside or just paint them entirely with acrylics and a good coat of poly.  You could super glue the flat part and put them in a design on canvas or cardboard.  Like a crazy mosaic or something.

They could also be used in making wee potted arrangements maybe?  A tiny bit of soil and a little bit of wheat grass?  I'm not positive that would work, but arranged in a larger square tray it could be very interesting.

Or you could paint them and make tapered candle holders with them.  Or put magnets on the flat part, stick it on to a square of sheet metal, and have a secure but moveable way to separate beads, buttons, etc.

Robyn, THANK YOU! I really love your ideas!!!
I think maybe I will make a bead holder because I love beading, and I travel a lot, and the beads always spill onto the bottom of the car!! It's a great idea, thanx so much!

I love Robyn's pot plant idea! I used mine to make tiny scenes inside them... It was really fiddly. But i stuck in atiddly picture as a background, then arranged stuff inside to make a scene. Then covered them with clingfilm. They are very cute but VERY fiddly. I snap most of the stuff before I get it in there! Sorry, no pics  Sad
