These Canisters Got My Number

I loved this trio of vintage triangular shaped canisters when I spotted them at the thrift store.
An hour after scrubbing the packing tape off of them, I stenciled the numbers 2, 4, and 7 on them.  Tied them together with some jute, added a few teaspoons and a key, and set them on a little, round, metal tray painted white.
What should I put in them?

  3. So cute! I like the stenciled #'s on them. Umm, if you keep them in the kitchen, the teabag idea is a good one. Or else you could store little kitchen gadgets or how about your favorite recipe cards for easy grabbing?

  6. how cute! you did a great job. I would go with "more junk" too. :) Sort of like a catch all. Keys etc... stuff you need to grab right before walking out the door! Heck even if you don't put anything in them, they're awfully cute!
