    Berry Boxes ! Great craft item, sew some up!

    End of last year I bought these berry boxes for .99c. I WAS going to use them for all my cherry tomatoes this year, however....I, 2-toned painted them & sewed a pretty 12" sq for inside. Now , I think they can be in the kitchen, for rolls, snacks. Or anywhere you'd like a pretty catch all box!

    Those would look cute on a kitchen shelf.

    We don't get those boxes anymore - we only see the clear plastic ones. You have a great idea.

    Clever idea!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Cute idea. i like your liners to. We never get to keep the baskets here. They dump everything in a bag.

    awesome, great as a catchall or as gift wrap. great way of being green and upcycle.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    OH my, must keep an eye out for them when I buy dog/cat food. Clever idea to use them all about the house.

    I saw your post the other day and I've been saving the quart boxes the strawberries come in! It's a great idea!
