If you're still using an ordinary 35 mm point-and-shoot camera, hold onto the film canisters after you drop off a roll. They make excellent containers for beads and other small items.

Another thing you can do with film canisters is to make a holder for a roll of postage stamps. Remove the cap and make two 1 inch slits very close to each other in a downward direction. Remove the little strip in between the two cuts. Put the roll of stamps inside, feeding the end of the roll out through the slit area. Put the cap back on. Voila! (03/06/2008)
Those things will be treasured antiques someday! I have all my odd stamps, paper clips, thumbtacks, pushpins, and other desk stuff in several of them. I froze garden seeds in them with a slip of paper to ID. Good for you! (03/06/2008)
