Welcome to another Tool Time...it started out over 2 1/2 years ago using items from the hardware turned into cute useful items for you and your home. However, TTT has branched out to recycled item, things from the automotive store, office supplies, etc. The basis of Tool Time now is pretty much...look at anything and think outside the box!!
Well, here is a recycled box to think outside the box with. The box is from a package of Crisco which is a solid vegetable shortening used in baking. I don't use Crisco very often, but I do use the butter flavored for a pound cake recipe that is a family favorite. When I do use it though, I spend the little extra for the pre-measured sticks. Just cut off the amount you need....like the way sticks of butter are pre-measure.
The bonus for the pre-measured sticks is that they come in little plastic boxes!
3 sticks each come in a plastic box sealed in foil. The box are about 6 inches by 2 1/2 inches. You also get 1 cover to protect the one stick that you've opened.
Great to store so many things with the cover.
All sealed in and spill prove.
After you've collected them for a while, they're great for just about anything...
Perfect for office supplies in your desk...
Sewing items that would normally be lost in the drawer...
Or how about items in your bathroom drawer...(and yes, I did search the house for red items so the pictures would match and look pretty. I think I need to seek help LOL!!!)
Other uses for these little boxes would be...
- organize your button collection by color
- crafting beads
- nails and screws for the work bench area
- use the covered box for games pieces in a board game
- mini jello molds for kids
- snack container for kids
- start your seedling plants
I know there must be so many more ideas...maybe you can add a few of your own in the comment section!
