Here's a tip that I submitted to a magazine for inclusion in the readers' tips:
When I'm done with a project, much of my left-over small pieces of fabric will be cut into either 2", 2.5", or 3" squares.
Since I drink General Food International coffees, it dawned on me to reuse the boxy tin containers for my 2" squares.
When finished with the coffee, I vacuumed the last few grains out of the can and wiped out with a dry cloth (Washing the can will cause it to rust!)
For a different look, I've covered two cans with wrapping paper, and they are great to store my 2" squares of scraps.
When 2 cans are full, that is when I make a small table topper or donate squares.
