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. Here's the link.
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. (6/2013 update: this no longer appears to be in stock at IKEA.)
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!
