I used up the last of my dental floss this morning Grin and was left with the empty container that I just didn't want to throw away.  I was wondering what uses you crafty people might come up with for them.  I was thinking that because they have the little cutter, you could wind thread around the bobbin and restring the container that way with sewing thread.  Not particularly genius, but it works and is pretty convenient, no?  Thread and cutter all in one?  Anyone have any more creative ideas??

I use them for basically the same thing. but i use it for my beading thread that comes on a bobbin like spool.  it 's perfect because i do a lot of beading on the go and i hate hauling scissors.  sorry i couldn't be more original.

My friend uses them as "scissors" to cut yarn when she knits on airplanes.

Sorry I guess that's kinda the same thing though......


I'm back after a long time away and trying to find time to craft as I adjust to life as a mom!

  I'm guessing that you could take the blade out (set it aside for when the new others get dull?  Hmm..) and use it to store small items like seed beads.
