I’ve been buying a lot of strawberries lately, and have been making a lot of Strawberry Shortcakes.  I kept the strawberry container’s, because I knew they would make great storage containers for something.

After I made my TWINE CupcakesI had several rolls of leftover yarn and put those strawberry containers to use!

I put 2 rolls of yarn in a container and pulled the end of the yarn through the slots.  When I need some yarn, I just pull the end of the yarn.

This keeps my rolls of yarn organized and since the containers are clear I can organize them by colors.

Plus, these containers keeps my cats away from the yarn!

    Thank you very much for sharing this great idea! I just dashed to my recycle bin and pulled out an empty tomatoe container. This is a great solution for the fringe yarn I use for embellishment. I put one in the container so I won't forget. The best part it's free! Jacquelene L Canada

      Tomato containers are a good idea too! I will have to remember that the next time I buy tomato's!
  18. Great idea - I also save the larger lettuce or spinach containers for fabric scraps I have cut into small squares or strips or bias strips. I will have to start using some for yarn as well.

      That's a great idea, too!! I'm going to start saving those containers, they would be great for lots of things.
