A Crayon Container

I love it when a normally throw away type of thing inspires me!  A while ago I made this juice and realized that the container that was left would be perfect for something, I just wasn't sure what.  So I tossed it in my "figure out a use for it" basket and let it sit for a little while.  A few days ago I realized exactly what I was going to use it for...a travel crayon container!  Not only would it keep the crayons from getting crunched in a bag, but it also fits conveniently in a car seat cup holder.  Since we do a lot of traveling in the summer, I knew that it would definitely come in handy!

I started off measuring the size of the container and cutting a piece of scrapbook paper that I had in my stash to fit.  Then I mod podged it in place.  I also added some cutouts from a coordinating piece of paper and a circle for the lid.  Modpodge over the whole thing and we had a crayon container!
 Voila!  One finished container.  And again, the best part was that it was totally free!  I had all the supplies on hand already and the juice was even free.  I bought it with a coupon!
 Super simple and free.  Doesn't get much better!
