Reused frosting containers

Do you buy frosting containers and just throw them away or recycle them once they are empty?   There are so many great ways you can REUSE them.  I absolutely love frosting containers.  They are great for storing and it's so easy to make them look cute and decorative.  I use them in my classroom to store a variety of supplies.   You can even keep the lids on the containers if you are storing smaller items.
