How about this container?

I have a whole bunch of those containers from the hospital from when my daughter had my grandson. you know, the ones that they store the milk in? It has a flip top lid on it.

I know there has to be a great craft for it but it just hasn't hit me yet.

Ideas anyone?

If at all possible, I like to repurpose things. I think it's the best way to go.

I'm not sure what they look like but I've been wanting to try this:

Basically any transparent jar can be painted whatever color on the inside to make a pretty vase or an interesting holder for pencils and tools.

I love how the white ones look like faux vintage milk glass:)
