I have a lot of black plastic jars with a grey cover. I don't know what to do with them when I have developed the films. I use to have beads and other small thing in them but they are quite boring. Please give me some ideas! Thanx!

This is a bit of a childish idea but when I was little, I used to put a bandage and a few other small first aid things in them. Then I'd keep it with me. I think this might be a good idea for a girl on the run who wants to be ready for anything. The little containers can fit anywhere so you'd always have a mini first aid kit in your purse for when you find that man-in-distress! hahaha! Hope this helped!

A sewing machine and a lab coat. The best of both worlds.

O thats a really cute idea!
heh. in other ideas..you could always decorate the bottles in the beads inside.
 or my friend uses them as molds to make popsicles and candies.
maybe even a candle holder.
or maybe put candies in them and decorate with beads and give to friends!
lol honestly i have no idea. but if you do come up with a good idea or two. let me know i have a bunch also  Wink

If you have some left over chapsticks you can melt them down in one of those and then use up the bottoms of your chapsticks/lipsticks...you canmix them together and make new colours.

how about a mini pinhole camera? That would be really cool, although you'd have to have access to a darkroom so you can load/unload the film and divelope it! You'd only be able to get one 35mm film frame per canister at a time! So if you made a bunch of them, you could experiment with various time exopsers etc. I love pinhole photography! (can you tell?)  Wink

I used to do a lot of beadwork, so I used tons of those and Kinder Surprise containers for my beads.  They're all labeled with size and colour.
Also, camera film containers seem to be the perfect size to store bobby pins.

Thanks for the suggestions. I liked the one with the film canister stamps! I'll try that!

You shouldn't store any food or cosmetic items in there (like the idea of making lipglosses and putting them in there) There are lots of residual chemicals left over from the film and it's not very safe. Sorry it's not an idea, but just a tip.
