Crafty Tuesday- Mini M&M container ideas

Pin It

You know those little mini M&M's that are right there at the checkout line at kids level?  Well, I got tired of her always wanting to keep them and started throwing them away but now I have found some cute ideas for them..

I took the label off and added some scrapbook paper to the outside of it and then a cute little flower I printed off on the top.  This one I just added a few of her crayons to so I can through it in my purse.  I still love the idea of the mint tin for those but still haven't gotten any so since I had this one I just went with it.


This is the only one I have done so far but think the would come in handy for all her little rings and hair barrettes in.  Might just add another to my purse for that because she always wants to wear them and then once we leave the house it only takes about 15 min before she says she doesn't want them anymore.

Could even make one for her and find some scrapbook paper with money on it for the outside and she can put her change in it so I don't have to hold it all the time.  Might even put a couple holes in the side and use it for a necklace so she can carry it.  Hmmm.... ok now I need to go and get some more of those.  Guess that means we will be eating some M&M's!!  YUM!

Well, Nicole you've just given me another idea that I can do when 3 of our grand daughters come to visit next week! I'm sure they'll devour the M & M's and I'll be waiting in the wings to help decorate with them...:)
