I've got a whole bunch of these bottles, from Impress press-on nails. they open to reveal a small amount of space (which the nails are packaged in) and I can't think of anything to do with them.
 

Ideas??

these might make cute pendants - fill them with little bits & bobs and glitter, glue them shut with E-6000 or something, drill a small hole thru the lid and run a large jump ring thru it, then hang on a chain or cord.  could make great party favors for younger girls.

Depending on your interests, how much time you might want to spend on it, etc., these could be turned into little specimen jars.  Maybe age them up a bit, so they look a bit more 'antique', and get/make miniature creepy things. 

Or the complete opposite of teensy fetal pigs could also be some sort of super fabulous girl-style Christmas tree ornament... Tongue

Ooh how fun! I love empty jars and bottles.

-I think it would be fun to store/share all sorts of glitter or specialty glues/paints/ink.

-For a more practical purpose, you could save a sample of all the wall paint in your house and have mini "touch up" bottles.

-You could paint the inside and make them into teeny tiny vases!

-Or! You could paint the outside of them and stick them on a string of christmas lights! I think it would be cute to paint them like little jack-o-laterns and string them on lights for a neat glow effect.

-I saw an idea on pinterest the other day where you mix colored chalk with salt (just stir a chalk stick in a small bowl of salt) and it looks like colored sand. You could do mini sand-art with kiddos!

- Are they glass? You could do some simple glass-cutting and cut off the neck of the bottle. Then maybe make small candle votive out of them - even with the leftover stuff stuck to the bottoms of nice/expensive candles that never burns!

-They could be neat spice jars.

Hmm... now I want a bunch of tiny jars. Wink

Too many possibilities...

Store spare buttons
Nails/screws
Paint outside store money
Fill with mini candy as stocking suffers
Store jewelry and display on a spice rack in your room/bathroom.

These pose a challenge because they are NOT actual bottles. They hinge at the bottom and open down the sides.

If they are deep enough, I am thinking lip gloss or solid perfume.
