With all the summer fun we have coming up I need a place to keep sandwiches that we can throw in a bag and they will stay fresh and not smooshed. I really do not like plastic so going out and buying some that I will not want to have around forever is not my idea of money well spent and using my glass containers could mean lost containers at the beach or park or what have you. Enter the recycled milk jug sammich container.
What you need:
a clean plastic gallon milk jug
velcro dot or snap
mark your jug as marked here
cut down on each curve at the corners to where the dotted lines start, fold the flaps down along the dotted lines on all four sides, then open them and fold them in the opposite directions and then in again to make the crease permanent
put a sticky velcro dot or a snap at the front to close
If you don’t buy milk get the jugs from the recycling center or a friend. This would also be a cute little gift container or place to keep cookies, snacks, napkins or wipes etc. If you make one send me a pic.
I cut out bottom of clean, dry one; screw lid on & use for lg scoop to fill bird feeders. Saves trips & corner helps pouring.
Carol, I really like that tip!!
I think this is a great idea. I can't wait to give this a try, although I am looking forward to reducing the plastic in our lives this would be a good way to get rid of plastic baggies.
I can't begin to say oh very awesome that is and oh so simple. We use milk jugs cut in form baskets to put garden produce in for delivery to church members. Church sponsored garden.
Very cool. This will be a great craft project with our Toddler 3.9 and he can use them to tote around his crayons, etc. after we decorate them of course! God bless!
