    I use them for pens and pencils. I painted a few.

    Cool ideas!

    If you cover the soup can with a pretty laminate you can make a whole office organization set. My mom did it for her office and when I go back to work I will do it for mine. Just be sure the laminate goes over the sharp inside edges too

    we usually just recycle them but those are some great ideas! My kids are to little I fear them may cut themselves on them but definetly filling this away for future use!!

    I've never thought of that. I like the lantern idea, I'll have to try that.

    I have never done any of this. Sounds like fun.
