When I went to Greece two summers ago, I brought back this cardboard can. It contained a Greek alcoholic beverage called "Ouzo." Believe it or not, I didn't consume the alcohol myself. I don't drink - AT ALL - and have never seen one of these before... so I don't know if they're a common item at liquor stores or if I have something unique.

Anyway, it's basically a glorified Pringles can. It's cardboard, but it's much stronger and more durable than the cardboard of an actual Pringles can.

Any ideas of what I could do with this thing?

I like using mine to store paintbrushes in it

how about covering it with fabric/wallpaper/map and fill it with
fireplace matches or bread sticks or licorice?

put a ball of string or two in there and maybe drill a hole in the cap & feed it thru
you'll have a string dispenser...that made me think of something else

how about the spools of curling ribbon, would they fit in it?

if you're knitting with 2 colours, maybe you can put both balls of yarn in there together and feed the yarn thru a hole in the cap.

You might use it to store knitting or crocheting needles too. Or you might use it in your pantry to store spaghetti, Ive got a bought tin container to store spaghetti which has about the same measures and holds at least one package of that stuff.
In case you have scraps of paper you want to keep, this could be where to store them or you might decorate the container to use it as an extravagant gift wrapping.
