Great for Trail Mix Make-and-Take
We used these at my son's camping themed party for a make and take trail mix station. We made labels for all the containers and set up a table with lots of different options (peanuts, almonds, granola, chocolate chips, white chocolate, marshmallows, craisins, etc). Then, I made labels to put on the jars for the guests. Everyone got to go assemble their trail mix jar and take home an affordable, delicious and custom treat! :)
(I used the leftovers for a science experiment in my classroom. Each group of students filled one with coke and put a penny in and one with water and put a penny in. We've observed the changes over a week. Lots of fun and utility!)

great product but size was misleading
I really can't complain about the durability of the jars because they are excellent... but they were a little big for the project my class was doing and this was the smallest size available for what I needed... oh well. :)

For our adult western-themed party, I took these jars and placed a handkerchief (purchased the assorted 12-pack from OT) inside the jar and fill each jar with western mints (also OT) and mini cowtail candy and finish the jar with a sheriff's badge (yes, you guessed it also from OT) pinned to some of the handkerchief fabric. We received so many compliments.

Not a good buy
I bought these to make calming jars for my clients. Yes it was a good price for the amount of jars, but the jars themselves are made of flimsy plastic that caves in when you try to unscrew the top. I will just use them for something else.

Perfect for hot cocoa jars
My Girl Scout Troop used these to make hot cocoa jars to sell at a craft event in our community. They were perfect! We did put the individual ingredients in plastic bags inside the jar and then decorated them. They look great!

To hold my brads.
Very happy with the size, but the lids are a little hard to get off! I'm sure with more use of popping the lids on and off, they'l be easier to use. I bought 2 sets, and they're the perfect size to hold all my brads!

This is exactly what I needed.

Disappointed with quality for price
I store a lot of craft items in mason jars for my own use, and wanted a plastic alternative to store some of my children's beads, math manipulatives, etc that is less heavy for them to access. I read the reviews and had pretty low expectations based on the price, but I was still disappointed when I received these. They collapse inward when you hold onto them to put on lid. Putting on the lid takes me several tries as there is quite a bit of plastic flash near the threads that require everything lined up perfectly and a little bit of force. I do appreciate that they are a nice clear plastic, but overall wish I would have gone with the 2 for $1 jars at my local dollar store as they are better quality for less cost.

The Perfect Storage Jars!
I buy a TON of glitter and these jars are PERFECT for storing it! I can easily see what colors I have and the jars are large enough to hold about 1/2 lb of glitter. They also have a nice flat cap which makes it easy to stack them on top of each other to save on space. I'm so glad I bought 2 dozen of these. I know I'll be back for more soon!
