I've been trying to find a decent container for my used sewing machine needles and bent pins. I had a pill bottle that I filled up over the last four years which I disposed of last month. I currently have two pill bottles that I prepared and are ready to fill with old needles and bent pins. Today I found some packaging that would work really well for this job.
Burt's Bees makes a tinted lip balm that comes in a plastic blister package. The blister package holds a cardboard tube that then holds the separate plastic tube of lip balm. I bought the lip balm because I wanted to try it. I had no idea that the packaging would be this cool. The cardboard tube is closed on both ends and is the perfect size to store old needles and pins or you can even use it for your traveling sewing kit.
The lip balm was $6.62 at the store.
Here's a picture of the tube.
