I received an email from Samantha a while back about how she recycles Crystal Light containers to put candy inside for her shoe boxes. You may recall a similar upcycle project I shared using plastic baby food containers. You could also use large gum containers for this project. I would still recommend putting the candy inside a plastic baggie before putting it inside the plastic continer. Hard candy can melt in hot temperatures and might leak out of the container, so it is always best to be cautious.
Here are Samantha’s instructions:
Crystal Light Candy Container
Here is a quick and easy way to make a neat candy container to put in your shoe boxes.
First take a crystal light drink (the one that has 6 packets of the drink mix) remove the label, decorate it with self-adhesive foam stickers, then fill it with candy or any other small trinkets that you usually put in your shoebox.
This project is a nice way to recycle unusable plastic containers, and to have something to put candy in!
