They would make excellent bead containers. You could stick a rolled-up letter in them, like a message-in-a-bottle, only it's a message-in-a-prescription-bottle. Smiley

Fearlessly willing to try new crafts ... and usually botching them horribly.

I've been lurking for awhile now and finally registered just to reply to this thread! LOL

Yesterday while cleaning out my kitchen cupboards I came across a prescription bottle I didn't recognize. The name on it was my DH's grandmother. She had used it to give DH some fresh rosemary she grew! So it's not crafty but definately a good use Smiley

I have been using mine for mixed acrylic paint. I usually just buy the basic colors - red, yellow, blue, black & white, and mix other colors from those. Then I paint a swath of the label and the lid so I know what color is inside.

I also plan to make Iocane powder labels for some, fill with powdered sugar and give as gifts.

There is one size of these bottles that is perfect for AA and AAA batteries.  I like to use them for carrying loose batteries or storing unused re-chargables.

Back in the day I used to buy a lot of film for my camera, and I used to save the black containers they came in to put in my shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc whenever I would stay over at my boyfriend's house.  I would also use it for change too, and also the plastic container the m&m mini's come in!  Hope I helped!


oo0o. thats a good idea, and im not sure if youve read this on here. but someone said that theres flakes from the film that are in the film canisters, i hope you wash them thouroughly!!! ( sorry, my moms on a extreme health kick now, and influenced me...)
and is there mercury in film too? its in everything else.. sigh.
i use my bottles for change too. but i do love the cond./shamp.lotion idea, its very handy for travel.
