Upcycle candy box containers

Don't throw those trays away

Higher-end boxed candy frequently comes in aluminum or plastic trays. Cut these up and make disposable cups for paint, glue, weathering powders, etc.

Another bonus is that the trim on the cups, such as those pictured, could also represent tread plate in larger scales.

So buy some high-quality candy for your significant other and get the cups —and maybe permission to add to your stash!
