This instructable will show you how to make scoops for tea/herbs/spices/sugar/what-have-you with Popsicle sticks and bottle caps.
I work in a food cooperative in Santa Cruz. Our little store is full of crafty eccentricities. I work the tea and herb section and saw we were in need of scoops. I thought of what I could do with what I had-- this is the idea I came up with and the scoops we currently use in our bulk jars.
Plastic bottle caps are not recyclable-- make them so!
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies.
You'll need some flat sticks, bottle caps, glue, and something to decorate with (I used stamps).
Step 2: Glue
Glue a bottle cap to the end of the stick cap-side up. Then let them dry. I recommend putting a small weight inside the caps, such as a stack of coins.
Step 3: Decorate!
Decorate your scoops! I used stamps. You could also use markers or stickers.
Step 4: Scoop Away!
Put your homemade scoop to use in a spice/tea/sugar jar!
