    I love spinach and that is a great way to reuse the containers. It keeps them out of the landfill and keeps your pieces nice and neat.

    Great way to store these strips. I love that one of them says "Organic".

    That's a great idea! I've had so many of them and didn't even think to save them. Now I will! Thanks!

    For PPing scraps, I use the containers from Hillshire Farms (and others) from the vacuum packed cold cuts. They are wonderful.and two containers fit on each shelf of my hanging canvas shoe bag, which has ten shelves.

    Really keeps them in place and easy to find.

    I use some that way but I primarily use them to cut into stencils or applique shapes. I can trace them hundreds of times.

    Duh! A use for all those strawberry containers I've saved. I also save the deeper meat trays for
    dyeing fabric. They are perfect to scrunch up pieces with just a little bit of dye on bottom--or dribble
    dye over top and let it run.

    Try using GooGone on the adhesive/labels to remove them. It works for me.

    If you simply cannot remove the sticker, why not glue a piece of pretty fabric over it?

    Those who can, teach. Those who canít teach get into some less significant line of work.

    After soaking off the label, try a dab of peanut butter to get the glue off. It really works!

    Glue or tape a pretty piece of fabric or paper over the label and it will look very attractive! There are some beautiful papers used in scrapbooking.
