As a crafter you tend to look at everything in a different way. You look at things & think about how you can reuse them in a crafty way. Having a new baby in the house we have been going through many containers of powdered formula. I just can't stand to throw away the containers because they are great to use for other purposes. I decided that this year they would make great containers to decorate with holiday paper & put goodies in to give out. The container works great because it has the nice lid that seals so tightly & keeps everything fresh. And it didn't take long at all to decorate the outside & I think they turned out pretty well!
Here's a side-view of the container so you can see the punched-out ornaments:
