Reuse Cookie and Cracker Package Trays

Don't throw out the plastic trays from cookie and cracker bags! They work great as holders for beads or paper pieces for your crafts, but you can also use them as mini-green houses and flower pots.

Also great to save for your own homemade cookies. Can place cookies in them, cover with plastic wrap and then wrap in pretty cellophane paper with ribbon to tie up and have a nice gift.

I used 3 vienna sausage cans, wrapped them in red yarn and put in an empty

cookie tray. Holds loose change, beads or other small objects.

I find these are super cool for putting empty applesauce or fruit cups in then using them for crafts, office supplies, and condiments. I recently went to a gathering outside, and cut a v shape in a pringles lid to cover the relish, mustard and ketchup to keep the beasties out.

Great tip!

Reuse Packing Trays For Paint Or Beads
Reuse Packing Trays For Paint Or Beads
Use the trays that come inside of individual serving size condiment boxes for paint trays or beading trays. Restaurants throw these away when empty and many would be more than happy to save a few for you! These work especially great for thick children's tempera paint. Using these makes clean up-easy and they are free!
