Recycled Lids

By now you probably know that I like to recycle whatever I can, and save money where possible. One yard sale I went to not too long ago had a bunch of yogurt containers with lids in the free box so of course I took them all..... The containers have come in very handy but many of them have already been discarded. I used them to freeze water in and often they didn't stand the pressure so they ripped. But now I am left with all these colorful lids that I can still use. I use my half gallon jars a lot, but not for canning, so I don't necessarily need the metal lids. These plastic ones are just perfect, and look great too!

 Just take a metal lid, place on a plastic lid, and draw around it with a pen, and cut it out!

Pretty idea. I like it.

I reuse our yogurt containers too. Who needs tupperware. :-)

What a neat idea; I hadn't thought of that!
