When I first started taking pictures with film, I used to leave the film canisters with the photo center since they have better resources to reusing/recycling them. After a while, as I experimented with more kinds of film, I began to have quite a bit of fun collecting the different canisters from various brands/countries.
I believe that I have previously mentioned that I am a container junkie. Naturally, these film canisters have become quite the appropriate little homes to my jewelry/sewing supplies.
And if you’re the sewing type, I would totally encourage you to make a small but cute pin cushion out of your film canisters! They’re so easy to make (yes, I’m sure you’d realize by now I really, really like easy DIYs!) Look around on the Internet, you’ll find lots of amazing uses people have come up with to recycle them; I’m definitely going try the ones featured below.
