Duct Tape Wrapped Kitchen Clips

I am all about making fun and cute stuff.
How adorable are these Duct Tape Wrapped Kitchen Clips? Yes, binder clips that I use in the kitchen.
What, use? You might be surprised how versatile they are. I use them instead of chip clips. They hold the bags so much better.
They are great to go in the fridge or freezer too. I keep several dozen handy in a drawer to clip up bags of frozen veggies in the freezer or baggies in the fridge.

Yes, they sometimes rust, but that is the beauty. I got a package of 8 for $1. They can last months, even years. If they get a little rusty, I just toss them.

Can’t say that about those $5 chip clips that never even hold the bag closed, or slip off.
These super cute and colorful clips are an easy craft. I think a set or two of these would be lovely as a gift for mom, Mother’s Day is coming up soon!
Pick up a set of these clips at the dollar store.

I used both duct tape and washi tape.

I’ll show you.

    Doesn’t the washi tape peel off since it’s so thin and not water resistant?

    You are so clever to create these. pre-decorated clips never are the colors I want.

    I have a handful of these in my silverware drawer, use them to shut the bread, for the frozen vegetable bags, chip clips, sunflower seeds that I use on my salad, everything. I also have clothes pins in the drawer for the same thing, bags of cereal ( never stays all the way air tight in the box) , etc.
