    Hi, I had to look up zipfizz first :):):). Here are a couple of ideas - make a little emergency sewing kit. Put a needle a little bit of black and white thread on a piece of cardboard to fit. Then add a couple of safety pins. Also I thought of a little emergency kit - couple of bandaids and some sample antibiotic cream or antiseptic . Put a label on them and tie a ribbon around it and you have a nice little gift for someone to keep in their purse. Put a little powdered coffee creamer in one to carry with you. Hope you have fun finding a use for your

    little containers.

    These are similar to the mini M&M containers, which are very handy for storing small objects. Small beads, toothpicks (to carry in your purse), etc.

    They would make great ornaments for the holiday tree! Remove the paper labels and spray paint them a base color. Use your imagination to make characters or just make them festive! Drill a small hole through the top and pull a ribbon through and voila! For extra fun put little treats like coins, dollars bills or candy inside and let young guests pick an ornament off the tree during holiday visits!

    American girl dolls are extremely popular right now and you can use the small containers and redesigned them into play containers or other items for the dolls.

    Store straight pins, small nails, spices, drill bits. Etc. I could use a couple dozen of them. I've been looking for small food grade containers like these for a long time.

    I'm always looking for small things to put OTC things in my purse. Washed and dried, of course, I put aspirin, Tylenol, Benedryl, whatever comes in huge bottles that I don't want to carry. Also, earplugs! Hate all those loud explosions at the cinema - but love to watch them.

    I have a M&M container, quarters fit it perfectly and I keep it in my car to use at the car wash.

    They look like they would be the perfect size to maybe put a couple of crayons in. Perfect for moms to keep in their purse.

    I have lots of buttons,, separated the colors and put them in the clear gum car containers. Now when I need a certain color it is easy to find.

    They work well for carrying toothpicks. Keeps them from stabbing through your pockets. Would also work for some craft items like beads or small brads. You already know that coins, candy, and buttons won't fit in them. I go through one a day and feel guilty throwing it away.

    I’ve used them to hold spices and such when on camping/canoeing trips. They work REALLY well for that.

    My main planned use is to hold clues for a treasure hunt at our next very large family reunion. Since I have 54 acres of trees, rocky cliffs, hay fields and fruit trees to hide the clues amongst I’ve decided to use certain colors per age group. That way, when a 10 year old group (oh, say, color pink grapefruit) comes across a purple container they will know that that one isn’t their clue. Keep looking for the next pink clue. Since they seal so tightly I can hide the clues weeks in advance and not worry about rain ruining the clue.

    Great for almost any type of kids storage. Keeping little items togather comes to mind. Like barbie cloths, legos (depending on the size).
