Freebie Friday- Storage Containers

 Here's the short on why I currently don't drink coffee.
During the delivery of both of our daughters, my husband and birthing partner (that sounds cheesy)  had the rigorous and demanding job of staying awake.  When anticipation and adrenaline weren't enough, he relied on good ole' caffeine.  Even though I felt like death, my sniffer was in overdrive, and his coffee breath made me want to barf!!  Now, I can't stomach the stuff.  
All joking aside, Adam was awesome during both births.  I guess he figured he was the reason I was there in the first place, so he stepped up to the plate.  

So, after Munchkin came into the world, I went on a search for a new hot beverage to get me going in the morning.  I tried hot chocolate, hot cider, some mocha thing-a-ma-jig, and a few Keurig concoctions. I finally found this stuff and fell in love...

Which leads me to today's freebie... This cute little storage container.
Not only is the cappuccino business awesome but it comes in this awesome container.  It's the perfect size and it's nice and sturdy. 
Here's the how-to.  Start by peeling off the label and wiping out the inside with a wet paper towel.  

Next, cut a pretty piece of scrapbook paper to fit through your printer.  Using a blank Word document (turned landscape, not portrait) and a fun font, print your label.  

Cut the paper to fit onto the canister.  Hot glue the paper on.  OOPS!!! My paper ended up a little too short.  No biggie! I'll just employ my favorite craft material...burlap.   

 Hot glue a little slice of burlap over the gap using lots of glue so it won't ravel.

There you have it!  I can't wait to finish some more delish Starbucks-like drinks so that I can whip out some more cute containers.  I'm thinking "rubber-bands" "cords/chargers" and "chalk" for my chalk board calendar.

  1. What a clever idea! One of my favorite things to use as storage is little glass jars that mushrooms or pimentos come in. Perfect for tiny things. But not near as cute as your paper covered ones! :)

  2. Cute and a great idea!
