Oatmeal Box Silo

I've been keeping the last couple of oatmeal boxes just because they seem like could be used for something cool. Except I don't know what. Well, I finally thought of making a lil' silo and then ran across an actual link for one, so here it is. Isn't it cute?

Here are a few more craft ideas:
* Teddy bear/baby doll cradle and wind sock
* Canadian wind sock, hot dog roaster, kitchen utensil holder, easter basket, patriotic wind sock, drum
* Time capsule
* Gift box

But what about you? Do you use these containers for anything? I keep thinking storage for long paint brushes, but we don't really have any of those. So do you have any other ideas??

I covered one in contruction paper and labeled it "garbage" for when I'm making cards. :o) I need a second one for "recycling". Sits on the desk nicely.

That is so cute. I would have never thought of that. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog and the suggestion.
