"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."

Uses for the plastic inset tubing case.

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.See More
