they're the fancy feast cans.  here's a pic Cheesy

I bet those are great!  My first thought is to use one as a little pot for some cat grass for you kitty to nibble on.  But it would be cool if you glued them together on their sides and made a wall hanging organizer or trinket shelf thing.
good luck!

Hey, fill them with sand and they make great patio/deck ashtrays. Or they are also good for round shadow boxes, to hang hot glue a soda tab to the bottom. I've also covered them with leather to make cute little drums. D

What about candle holders or windchimes? I'm sure they would make nice bead organizers.

i had thought about starting seedlings in them, but i think now that it's gotten so hot outside that the gardening bug has left me ;P
right now they're just being used to throw stuff in (beads, needles, whatever's small) into.

im still open to ideas though ^_^

You can poke holes in them and string a handle through. Decorate and you have a little basket for gifts. I'm thinking more Easter decorations for some reason, mmm Peeps.

An idea might be to make a clock out of them....glue 12 of them just like a clock and buy one of the clock hands from your local craft store. You could put a picture of your kittys as the background of the clock.

I would like to see that tin and magnet organizer if anyone knows where it is...I don't have a cat but I have tuna and salmon cans....I will look for it myself eventually but if anyone knows where it is it might be faster!  TishaLee
