    What a great idea! We don't use formula, but I can see using the 28 oz. tomato cans for when I bring homemade candy to neighbors!

    Oh, these are cute. Nice idea!. But if there are no Babies in your home...Folger's coffee site, has about the same idea. You can print a colored label to fix the larger can or print one out for your children to color themsleves. I found that last year and am sure they are there again this year. check it out...thanks for sharing
