i have been asking this question for quite some time, and noone seems to be able to provide a satisfactory answer...

what to do with old birthcontrol containers...?
they are flat and rectangular with twenty-eight tiny circular holes in the backside...

some are green and some are peach...

any ideas?

a teeny tiny candle holder?
stick it to a wall or cupboard and use some of the holes to hang earrings in?

You know, I work in a pharmacy, and we have t hese coming out of our ears.... NO ONE has ever come up with an actually USEFUL thing to do with them. 

About the only thing I can think of is some kind of protector for cards, like ATC's SS cards, whatever...decopauge the vinyl to personalize?

How about using them as a cover for a tiny handmade book?   I LIKE that idea... a little notepad or perhaps a mini scrapbook or brag book?  I am talking about the soft vinyl wallet style that most of them come in now. 

As for the hard plastic containers that a few of them still come in....  how about a little shrine?  Something like what people do with the altoids tins? Perhaps turn them into a compact of some kind?  Put a mirror on the inside?    A cute little holder for important phone numbers?

Let me know if any of these ideas are helpful...

Can you post a pic?  I'm having a difficult time picturing them in my head.  Are they hard plastic?  Do they open? are they hollow?   Huh?

Why not just use it as a money holder?  Attach a money clip to the inside... I would crack up seeing a woman paying for her groceries with her birth control!!!

so i hope that im replying right. how about hot gluing them together in a shape? a tube for a tall votive candle holder, a cone shape for a lamp shade, a square for a box....
