These mini paint cans are so cute…I just could not leave the store without them.  I do not know what I am going to do with them, but how can you pass up such cuteness?  And they came in two of my favorite colors.

Mini Paint Cans

These are new at Michaels, part of the Duff collection.  You know, the Ace of Cakes.  They were near the gift wrap stuff, not near the cake decorating supplies.  He has a few different treat box options including these adorable mini paint cans.  They came in 5 colors.  They are $1.99 each.  A little pricey for me for a treat box, but their cuteness was worth it and I am sure I can find a way to put them to good use.  I am currently thinking they would make a fun pencil holder.

Just for giggles I snapped them holding the kids paintbrushes.  Seems fitting, but I am not giving these over to my kids for their messy art supplies.  Does make me think about picking up a few more for them…for pretend play.  With a few paint brushes I could easily see them spending the day pretending to be painters.

Any suggestions?  What would you do with these little guys?

    Use them in the bathroom to collect bobby pins, barettes, manicure stuff, etc. Or use them for loose change.
