I needed a new container for my decoupage glue and a few other through away brushes. soooo:

But you could easily make a gift box or a cute pen and pencil holder for in the office. I like saving soda can tabs for future projects, so I have one for those. I live in Florida, so I have always wanted to make one covered in shells. They are nice to have around and decoration when you fancy them up a bit! Cheesy

Hey! I can do that! :3

You could make a pinhole camera. There's lots of tutorials around to make one, you just need to make sure the container is light tight.

They make an excellent foundation for a paper mache piggy bank.

If you attach all the bottoms to some lightweight board and hang them on the wall, they'd make a great mail sorter, or a place for your socks.  Cheesy

I decoupaged one and put a few extra rolls of toilet paper in it for our bathroom.

if you have some cooper wire and some nails i believe there is a pattern online to make an old school radio
Quaker oats did this a long time ago before everyone had a radio. It was the reason people were able to hear the war of the worlds.
ANd its a great educational tool for children

If you are baking holiday cookies to give away, these canisters are great for packaging them.  You can remove the paper label and use it as a pattern to cut a piece of gift wrap or other paper to cover the container, or you can draw, paint or stamp directly onto the cardboard.  You can remove the circular label from the plastic lid and replace it with a circle of card stock on which you could write a greeting, or your recipe.
