Now you should have a Tic-Tac container filled with straws filled with spices. It looks pretty lame, so you can "spice" it up!! You could print your favorite recipes very small and place it into the container so you have them on your campout, paint the outside cool, or make a cool picture in mspaint print it and paste it onto the Container!!

You could also try using clear straws. As long as the contents were different colors, you could dispense with labels. Just a thought.

This is a good idea. Heating the ends to seal is a good upgrade.
Also, if your getting straws, get the colored variety, then you can color code the straw to the spice, cayanne in red, salt in yellow, pepper in green, etc.
I am going to make up a couple for friends!
Thnaks for the good idea.

THIS IS VERY USEFUL: Heat the ends with a lighter (dont burn) and then pinch, it will create a very goo seal that reusable, try it. Also you may need scissors or knife to open these. Also works with other plastic food packets Try it.
