Nikki at Tikkido.com has a fun, festive take on plain, boring deli containers. With some scrapbook paper, cutouts, printables – or even stickers – you, too can bring snack-holders to life! These decorated clear containers aren’t just for food, though. Party favors, play-dough (purchased or homemade), and treats will all look right at home in your themed deli containers. What you put inside can carry the theme as well – check out the life-preserver-shaped sandwiches inside the nautical-themed container marked “Open in case of HUNGER”!
