Candy Container = Scrapbook Storage

I found these little plastic jars with candy on clearance for 50 cents each.
I really didn't want the candy, just the containers.

I believe in buying from the clearance section is smart, but it's usually not a good idea to buy clearance food.
This candy was absolutely horrible.  I threw some of it away, and gave some of it to my dad. 
He thought it was good, but he'll eat anything!

All  I needed for this project was some scrapbook paper,
 ribbon, and scotch tape sticky strip things.

I used my Cricut to cut out circles for the lids.

I put circles on the side too.
The one on the left has buttons and the one on the right has little foam letters.

My Cricut pens are in the left container.
Leftover pieces of ribbon are held in the right one.

Here they are in my scrapbook area.

I think they are cute!  Plus, they were super easy to make :)


  1. Great idea. I too have bought clearance candy for the containers or jars! I sometime 'stalk' Target after holidays to get the containers I want at a price I can afford.

  2. Okay, that is one of the cutest ideas I have ever seen! Congratulations!

  3. Very cute. I buy things just for the container too! Fun. Happy Organizing!
