   Right now I have at least 4 of those containers from The Body Shop's Body Butter.  I know that the store will recycle them, but I was wondering if there might be anything I could do with them instead.  Does anyone have any ideas?

  Here is a link in case you don't know what the containers look like:


  Sorry to use an ebay link, but the I wanted to find one that showed the side of the container a bit.

What about using them for storing things like sewing needles, thumb tacks and other sort of dangerous things....the cool thing about body butter containers is the the cap screws on, so if it falls on the floor it won't open and things won't spill out.  
Oh!!!    You could make a traveling sewing kits out of them too, to keep at your desk or in your bag for button emergencies and such.  Or a little first aid kit to keep in the car.  I know these are not really that "fun" ideas.  I must be wearing my pratical pants today.

   Well then, I think your practical pants are great.  I love the idea of keeping pins in them.  I think I am going to try to start decorating one of them tonight!

i recently used one to package a necklace i sent my sis to her birthday.  i just cut out cute flowers from wrapping paper and magazines and decoupaged them to the top and the insides--that way, you can just tie a ribbon around it and don't have to separately wrap them.

the problem for me is that you have to wash them out thoroughly, and run a toothpick along the inside of the top to get the old Body Butter out of there--but they smell really good!

You could also use them to store pictures and magazine clippings you are going to use for decoupage or marble magnets. (Krebstar5 and I are sisters in real life and I know we have way too many magazines lying around waiting for us to harvest the good pictures)

I'm not sure if this would work but you could wash them out really well, paint the front or decorate it then put cookies in them. You could give them away as gifts or something too.

Damn it feels good to be a gangster
