Repurposing a Used Fruit Jelly Cup

About: I am a 13 year old girl that loves sewing. That is all you need to know about me.

So lately I've been eating lots of fruit jellies.  They're so good! One day, after eating tons of those little goodies, I realized it was the same shape as an ice cube. I thought, why not make it into an ice cube holder?

And so I did.

Step 1: Materials

- Drinking water
- A fruit jelly cup
- Freezer

Step 2: Eat & Rinse Out the Container

Eat the little goodie.  Good, right? Then rinse the container out to get rid of the fruit jelly smell/juice.  It should be nice and should smell like fruit jelly (unless you want to get rid of the smell, wash it with soap.)

Step 3: Fill the Cup With Water

All you have to do is fill up the little container with drinking water.  Be sure to leave a little bit of space near the top to let the water expand.

Step 4: Freeze It

It should look like the picture below. Stick it in the freezer and wait for a couple of hours for it to freeze.

Step 5: Done! (& How to Take It Out)

Great, we're done! Take it out of the freezer.  If you want know how to take it out, read the following.  If not, bye!

First, pinch the bottom part of the ice cube with you index and middle finger.  **WARNING** It might fly out of the container and land somewhere, so be careful.  Pinch it until it flies out.

    Haha, that would be me who makes the ice cube fly, and it would probably land on me. This is a creative ible :)

    Haha, don't you know? It helps save battery. Lol, I don't know, my parents put it in there. We have a ton more in the freezer, not just those, haha. :D

    They are alkaline batteries though? Youd only be saving, like an hour or so on the battery life compared to leaving them in a drawer somewhere
