I have about 8-10 of these empty containers begging for a project. They are perfect for storing something, except I have nothing that needs to be stored. Any ideas I may have overlooked? Or another fabulous crafty idea??

Do you knit? With a little hole they'd make a good yarn ball holder.

One idea could be to turn them into compost catchers and miniature worm farms for indoor use! Something like these but on a smaller scale for those without all the extra space.

I would love to make these but don't have to space for those big sized totes, so those containers would be perfect in my opinion.  Wink HTH

They look like they would be a good size for a little girl's purse---kind of along the lines of the "quiet" doll purses that were popular a while back- made from the bottom of a dish liquid bottle.  Could you clean off the stickers and add some kind of handle? Then a little dolly and a blanket would copmplete the set.

Portable game parts storage? I am thinking they would hold a good number of legos for a road trip. Or a few matchbox cars.  Or a craft kit for a kid--throw in misc. art supplies/recyclables and some glue--just add creativity for a fun crafty gift.

Store puzzles?

Organization tool--like cotton balls, q-tips, small soaps in the bathroom.  Pompoms, ribbons etc. in craft area. 

A good catchall size for fabric scraps or threads in sewing area.  How about a dresser-top bin for pocket stuff at the end of the day?

Paper mache over them (inverted) to make toadstool tops.  Fairy houses?

Would be great for swapping....
WOW! Cool resource!
