How To Reuse The Tiny Hotel Breakfast Jam Jars

How To Reuse The Tiny Hotel Breakfast Jam Jars

Over the years, I’ve saved quite a lot of these empty tiny jam jars that often come on a hotel breakfast tray. I’ve never had a good use for them, although I’ve ~ maybe ~ used a couple to store beads or small sewing supplies, or as a mini vase for a bloom. I’ve searched on… Continue Reading
