Are you, like others, having trouble finding a similar container for your cookies?
I thought I'd address this issue since numerous people have approached me asking where I got mine. The answer is The Container Store (where they appear to be back ordered) but I'm going to give you the link anyway (just in case you want to check your local brick and mortar stores).
I love that particular container because it's acrylic and less likely to break when little people go reaching for a cookie. However some people have noted that the acrylic jars are expensive, especially for those who are thinking about giving them out in bulk for Christmas. For that reason I want to direct everyone's attention to these alternatives from none other than IKEA:
First is the Droppar Jar. I spotted it on a recent trip to IKEA and while it's not exactly the same as my original, you can't beat the $4.99 price tag.
Also $4.99 is the SLOM Jar. (Found here.) It is a little closer to the one I used above but I didn't get a picture.
My original project was a teacher appreciation gift but so many people have embraced it as a Chistmas gift that I wanted to address the matter before the holidays.
If any of you know of another inexpensive source for pasta canisters please feel free to leave a comment. I'm sure lots of people would appreciate it!
