I'm a crafter as well as a recycler. Has any one utilized the plastic inset case for a crafting project? Each time I open one up, I think there has to be something useful I can do with this cute little round plastic box. I have been saving them hoping to put them to use.

Ha - me too! I'll be interested in any suggestions.

How do they look? Do you have a picture?

they are the round plastic cases that the tubing and inset device are shipped in. I sure thought there would be someone who has used them for something. They have a nice re-sealable top. Only needs some card stock cut and attached to the bottom.

They are cute little containers. I've just been putting mine in the recyle bin, after I pull out the needle. I use Insets and my plastic containers are a pretty pink!

My daughter's are pink too. I saved up a bunch, thinking they had to be good for something, but now just recycle them because I haven't come up with a use yet!

Ya they are cute...there has to be someone out there who has an idea...

So...when and if I find someone who has a use for them, I'll post it for all to see. Thanks for replying to my request.

It's nice that so much is recyclable. Hope to find something...
