Looking for a stocking gift or party favor ideas for children? Or something far more interesting than a bought gift for gift exchanges? Here is a wonderful idea from Mariska who writes the No Time 2 B Bored blog.

Her tutorial shows how to recycle plastic food containers in a most crafty manner. These are the containers typically used for fruit, puddings and on. She filled these containers with the beads and findings needed for a project and created her own lids for them.

Mariska was thinking of children when she came up with her how-to but I think it's a splendid idea for adults too. I'm sure teachers would appreciate something different than the usual sort of gifts they get around Christmas.  An elasticated bracelet project with some basic instructions on a folded piece of paper is doable for most people who may not have the tools to do crimping.
