Is the whole thing plastic like the lid or is that some kind of foil covered cardboard on the bottom?...hard to tell and I am not familiar with those.  I have many, many empty yellow Nestle's Quik Sugar Free chocolate milk mix containers.  My daughter has been insulin dependant since age 6 and she is almost 15!  It is the only way she will drink milk so I have probably purchased 2 or 3 boxes per month for the past nine years and they are everywhere holding craft supplies, paint brushes, used needles, etc!  I had been looking for something to do with them forever and one day on HGTV's web site I came upon my very same yellow container decorated as a cute little novelty purse!  Right away I made one gluing on many bright colored fabrics and foam of different textures and it is adorable, if I may say so myself!  Then I sprayed a couple in different colors of Fusion (lightly sand first, and let it dry for 7 days unless you are gluing stuff on it) and on one I wrapped red, white and blue plastic leis around it, on another I left yellow and wrapped a cut-off jeans leg around it, the possibilities are endless!  You can push a nail or auger through the lid and bottom to attach them and put a bigger hole in each side, longways, to put any kind of strap on it that you might want!  As soon as I can I will post a picture of a few of them!  I can look up exacly where to find it on HGTV's site if anyone is interested!  TishaLee

just came upon one of those and I see that they are just cardboard on the bottom, covered with aluminum.  I would just save the purple tops to do something with, like link them together to make a bag of some sort maybe?  That is if you have a whole bunch of them accumulated.  TishaLee
