I searched around a bit more and found two more tin cans that were destined for the trash and also made:
A whole set (well actually now I want a few more so I am going to have to hit the thrift stores). In case you are wondering the plan is to put my food storage inside these in it's original package (like the bags of flour will go in the can, the bags of pasta will go in the can-that way it doesn't matter so much what the inside of the can looks like).
After making these I thought, "Wouldn't a smaller set of these make a really cute wedding or shower gift." (you know ones that could sit on a counter or in a cupboard). I think these are going to be my go to wedding gift from now on.
