Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect cake shipping Used the paint can to ship a cake to New York City. It was an unusual thing to ship and this was the perfect unusual container to ship it in. She could also just carry it home with the handle. It worked like perfection.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very insubstantial I bought these because I saw them in the ad and thought that they were very attractive. When I went to purchase them, I found that the plastic was VERY thin, they type that you find in shirt collar stays. Before I got up to the counter, to pay, one had partially broken. I bought the other two in my basket and when I got home, found it very difficult to pry the lids off as the plastic was so thin, it seemed as though they might break. Although they look cool, they are very flimsy and will not stand up to any type of heavy usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitile Containers I was pleasantly surprised at how cute these containers were. They are perfect for gifts, helping to organize different areas of the house, and I have way too many ideas for taking advantage of the clear part of the container. I can cute wrapping paper and let it unroll inside the can so the outside stays shiny and clean, I can put pictures inside the can, display items from travels, desk items, kids items, bathroom or bedroom things such as cotton balls or q-tips. maybe use pretty packing tissue paper inside to put a gift, but display beautifully. I highly recommend these. The price is right as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! The Large Clear Paint Can is such a cute product! It makes giving a birthday gift to my daughter's teenage friends so much cuter than a gift bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this can Love this can - I use it as a tip jar, with the handle can be hung up or just sit on the table... people can see the money and know what its for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endless Possibilities Endless Possibilities as in SO many different uses! I have recommended these to a friend and she bought 3 of them. I have several of these and use them for a variety of things. I use one for "heel socks", another for shoe scent balls (plastic balls you drop in your tennis shoes to deodorize them). I also have 2 other ones I use for my multi media stuff, one has computer/ipod cleaners in it and the other one I keep my Flash drives, Earbuds and USB cords in which are wrapped around your bombino cord organizers/brackets. Lastly I have one that I keep paint ball gum in. I have one of your plastic scoops in there as well. These canisters look like paint cans so I though it would be a fun and cute idea to put paint ball gum in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many wondeful uses! The paint cans are delightful ! I used them to restore order to my master bath, and since they're clear, it's difficult for smaller items to hide in them. They come in so many sizes, I use them for toothbrushes, make up brushes, tweezers and all manner of things that USED to clutter up my vanity !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome container...for multiple uses! I love these containers! I use them for storing my scrapbook notions, they are a perfect size and since they are clear everything is displayed...both accessibly and colorful!! I have also used them on occasion to wrap a small gift in instead of using a gift bag...they look really cute with a colorful fabric bow tied on the handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multitude of Uses These 'paint' cans are not only nice to look at they are practical too. The only thing limiting what you can do with these is your imagination. Pick some up, I think you will be very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Clear Paint Can I love this product for gift giving. It shows off my cookies or cake balls beautifully and I don't have to add much else besides a tulle bow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paint Cans Great as Gift Containers I bought these to hold gift cards. I don't like buying containers that are not useful and that get trashed so these seemed like a good choice. Saw an idea in a magazine where the gift card on these containers was a paint swatch from a hardware store. Our daughter gave them to her teachers who loved them and thought they were very creative. Plus we could choose colors that were customized... gecko green for the science teacher, Mizzou colors for the Mizzou alum, etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flimsy It's really cool looking container and a great idea but the clear plastic is very flimsy. I actually ended up putting crazy glue around the edges of the can so that the top part wouldn't keep coming off when I opened it. It would be a better product and I would have bought more if the clear plastic was not as unstable/flimsy as it is. Good idea, poor execution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cutie Can These cans are perfect for the babyshower gifts I create. I fill them with hair ornaments for a girl or socks for a boy and decorate them with craft paints, buttons, and bows for girls and craft paintings of cars, trucks, and frogs for boys and personalize them with the baby's name. I also do a special effect on the lids. I have received rave reviews from parents. They make for both a practical and a cute gift and always earn the giver compliments from the reciever.
