Repurposed Drink Mix Containers!

I don't like water.  It's true and I'm not proud of it.  Shamefully, I can skip drinking water for days (now coffee is a totally different story).  Now that the warmer weather is here, I try to be mindful of just how much water I'm drinking.  When I'm out and about plain old water in water bottles is what I choose.  But at home I like to jazz it up with powdered drink mix.  You know the ones...lemonade, iced tea, raspberry ice and the likes.  They are good!  And they come in these adorable cylindrical plastic containers that I couldn't bear to throw away.  Yes, I have hoarder tendencies.


After the containers started piling up I decided I needed to make use of them.  My family is heading out on a road trip soon and these containers can be used in so many ways!  But first I needed to personalize them and make them pretty...can't have cat fights in the car!  I got out my super handy Cricut and some leftover vinyl and got to crafting...


The final result for each one of my girls...


We plan on using them in the car to corral...

Does your family drink powdered drink mix?  Will you start saving these containers?  What will you use them for?  Tell me all about it!
