I've altered those before...I painted them with a layer of gesso and then acrylic paint, then I decoupaged scrapbook paper onto them. They wind up being cute little trinket boxes, but the cardboard around the rim of the lid is so thin that it warps a bit.

My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

I had a dream about these last night...I am thinking a kind of tower where they could swing out...having most of the top cut away for each one...how to make it work?

JOY - who should be quilting a quilt with a deadline

Thanks For The Pic!
I saw a commercial on TV for the first time today - now I know what "laughing cow" is.

I'd spray paint - it doesn't soak into the cardboard like water-based paints would.

I have a collection of viewmaster reels - It would be perfect for these - they never came with a protective case.....now to eat some cheese!

I like your tower idea. It would take a piece of dowel and a circular piece of 1" pine or plywood. Drill a hole in the centre of the piece of wood - stick the dowel into the hole. (it should look kinda like a paper towel holder thingy) remove the lids from the laughing cow containers. use your same drill bit that you used for the dowel, drill a hole 1" in from the edge. Stack your containers on the dowel & fill them up! When you want something, just slide them aside...Or you can have them look like a "spiral staircase" - so you can see everything at a glance.

whatever you choose to do - have fun!
