Need Takeout Containers?

Gum and medications that come packaged in the blister packs can be use for takeout and grocery store packaging.
I had some gum packaging and made them into containers for cookies, salads, whatever.....
 Cut sets of two apart as shown
Remove all the foil; I even used an emery board to help....
Make a STRAIGHT line between the two pieces with your craft knife being careful not to cut all the way through. You are trying to make a hinge.

I used my fingernail to help manipulate the fold
 This is what it should look like
Trim the edges evenly rounding the corners very carefully
 
Clean up any rough or jagged edges
And you have clear plastic containers for your store or take out foods
 
Hope everyone has a good week!

  9. I'm so confused about this. How can these be considered a container for salad? Cookies? Aren't they like an inch long? How would that hold anything? Maybe I'm missing something. :-)
