I talked about my spice drawer not long ago, and how much I love putting all my pantry and baking supplies in pretty containers. Of course, I also want the containers to be practical. I love the little baking powder containers, as they have great lids and a metal lip inside for scraping off each teaspoonful. So, each time I buy one at the store, I save it for my spices that get a lot of use, like baking soda and salt.
To make them cute, I just cover them with my favorite polka dot wrapping paper and clear Con-Tact paper. Simply measure out the wrapping paper to cover the canister and cut out. Do the same with the Con-Tact paper, cutting it just a little bit wider to overlap the paper and hold it in place.
When baking, if the canister gets messy, you can simply wipe it off with a warm soapy cloth and it looks like new again.
I also add a colorful label to the top, cut to fit just inside the recessed circle, and attach with double-stick tape.
