Just a word of caution, ladies---I made these a couple of years ago a la Martha Stewart and THEY LEAKED. Just FYI. I'm sure you are way smarter than I am and can resolve the leaking issue.

how many you want? if you pay for shipping i can send 'em out to yah. My toddler goes through at least 2 a day for the last year! I use 'em as stick pin containers; change jars (in laundry room); and to mix paint and unique homemade mayo (not together)

Silicone(sp?), silicone should stop the leakage. Thanks for the tip! I'll definately be prepared for it!

And a big shout out to jmswilfong! (If that's really your name...;-) Welcome! I see you came from ljc's blog, I love her! Very crafty and foody and she inspired me to start this blog. And I'm very impressed that you make homemade mayo. That's one thing I've always said I'd try to make but just haven't gotten around to it.

The Skipper Sez - If you hot glued the lids on would that stop the leaking? Run a ring of hot glue around the inside of the lid before you put it on?

I did the hot glue thing once and it sucked! I made one when i was like 12 and it last about 3 months or so and then it leaked! I'm very anti- glue gun. I find that it really doesn't hold well if you want something to last. Rather just go the extra step and use silicon adhesive.
