Can I just tell you how glad I am to have clever sisters? This idea comes from Sister #2 and it's a great way to re-use those empty strawberry containers!
Last week we enlisted some help from a friend with a van in order to pick up our new crib. We'd tried earlier and our car was about four inches too narrow. Oops! Good thing for friends with bigger cars.
Start by washing out your strawberry container, then peeling off the strawberry packaging labels. A little water and dish soap go a long way in getting off that sticky mess.
There are so many ways you could vary this idea. Instead of a yeast bread, you could give a loaf of fruity quick bread (perhaps with a small container of strawberry butter), use patterned paper under the parchment or use a pretty glassine instead, wrap it up with a big bow, or let the kids decorate it with stickers.
There are so many possibilities for re-using containers. Look for new ways to use containers before you throw them away!
