Clear Paint Cans from Staples

I picked up these cute little paint cans at Staples. I think they were something like $3.99 each. I just had to get a few to try them out! All I did was cut the paper and put it on the inside of the can. Then I used my circle cutter and cut a piece of paper just big enough to go in the lid. I also used my cuttlebug to cut out the chipboard letters. I put the paper on some thin cardboard and ran it through. It cut like a dream! I put some pens, highlighters, paper clips, and binder clips inside.
I'm not sure why but I have gone binder clip crazy! I got several packs of them with different colors and designs on them. I have yet to use one on any card but I have quite a collection of them. I guess I'll have to take them to school to actually use them! Does anyone had any ideas of how to use them on a project? I know how to use them on a stack of papers that need to be graded, but other than that I'm clueless! My ribbon collection is also out of control! I took the duplicate Cuttlebug alphabet back to Michael's and I picked up a lot of glitter, ribbon, and some other goodies. I have so many rolls of ribbon and my rod that I put them on is full. I have one of those cute brown and green totes they had a Michael's and it is full of ribbon! I told my friend that I'm out of control with the ribbon! I should give some of it away but I just can't part with it! lol Is anyone else like that? Or am I the only one?

How cute! I haven't seen these yet, even though I like to regularly browse around Staples. You never know what you will find if you walk up and down a few times. (The initials on the cans look very familiar)!
