Each of these little stash jars measures about 3 1/2 inches tall and would be perfect for storing beads or other small items. And not only do they make handy little containers, they're pretty enough to put on display! I'll continue to create these fun stash jars, since I'm sure I'll have plenty of baby food jars to recycle. And if you have any ideas for different types of jars just leave me a comment- I'd love to hear from you! -Michelle of CreativeCritters

Polymer Clay Covered Jars from CreativeCritters
My latest adventures in polymer clay involved finding a creative way to recycle glass baby food jars. And before anybody starts jumping to conclusions, no I do not have a new baby! I do however, have a cat who needs to take a pill every day. The vet prescribed L-Lysine tablets to help clear up Calcifer's clouded blind eye. I crush the pills and mix them with a little baby food and Calcifer thinks he's getting some gourmet treat ;-) I end up with one or two empty 2.5 ounce baby food jars each week though, and I can't stand the thought of just throwing them away. So I got creative with polymer clay and started decorating the jars and turning them into fun little stash jars. I got my fans on Facebook to help me out with ideas. They suggested things like dragonflies, lizards, and sunflowers. Here's the result of those suggestions.
