Figure It Out Friday…

…Or what the heck should I do with these. 

I’m taking the day off crafting today because of a silly crafty mishap.  Wednesday I poked my finger with a pin, we’ve all done it, it hurts, there’s usually a little cussing, a little blood, and we get over it, but not this time.  All that pop tab crochet has aggravated it and that little poke is now infected and very tender.  Don’t worry I’ve soaked it in hydrogen peroxide and now it’s covered in antibiotic ointment and a Yoda band-aid and I’m sure it will be all better soon, so in the meantime I’m back to cleaning and unearthing crafting treasures from my basement.

Years ago (like six or seven) I worked at the Holiday Inn delivering room service.  In room service everything is little and fancy (and overpriced): tiny little salt and pepper shakers, miniture bottles of soda, and a itty bitty jars of mustard, ketchup, and mayonnaise.  Little glass jars, with metal lids and I couldn’t just throw them out.  I have at least 100 of these little jars (probably a lot more), 1.2 oz., metal lids, glass, and about 2 inches tall.  They’re so cute and smaller than baby food jars (I have some of those too).figure it out Friday 1-29-10What should I do with them?  I don’t want to use them to hold supplies, I want to make something with them.  Originally I saved them to put single use/sample sized bath salt in, but I haven’t really made any bath products and probably never will and if I did I don’t think I really need 100 little jars of bath salt, so lets hear your creative ideas.

Have a crafty weekend and I’ll see you all next week!

Decorate the jars, fill them with stuff you are de-stashing and sell them as tiny jars of supplies. Or, leave out the supplies and sell them as eco-friendly, reusable gift containers.

ok here's a way out there idea! lol I am assuming you're thinking to make these for resale...well...
Decorate the lids (or possible even the whole jar) and market them as ring holders. (like for when you are washing dishes or making meatloaf that kind of thing)

Thanks for the suggestions, I think I may just go the easy route and sell them as is for supplies. They're just so cute, I wish I could think of something super fabulous to do with them, maybe Halloween related, hmmmmmm. I may have to keep them a while longer.
