Put your flips to work holding sugar, sweetener packets, salt and M&Ms. Or serve cranberry sauce in a clear cut glass flip, or ranch dressing.

But when the bowls aren't in use, they make beautiful, artistic displays. You know how striking any series can be? Look around at flea markets, auctions, antique shops and on ebay for the red metal cabinets that used to hold individual-serving boxes of cereal in mid-century restaurants. They're sturdy, have slots on the back for hangers and are exactly the right size for 4 1/2" and 5 3/4" flips.

And I was lucky enough to find a rare, even older one recently, in a beautiful drab green.

Larger flips make beautiful objects d'art on their own and do double duty holding decorative soaps in a powder room.

And flips make beautiful vases for flowers like lilies, gardenias and tulips. The beautiful and simple arrangement below takes advantage of the flat lid as a holder for a votive candle. It's a rare one as I've only seen two like it, but you can make the other one your own; click here.
