Marcia's notes for this recipe:
I always have a supply of medium binder clips around because I use them to hold my wide neck laundry on hangers and to close up plastic bags in the freezer. And now two of them make a perfect recipe card holder.

I've also included some other uses that I found on the internet and wanted to remember.

Enjoy!!

Directions

1
Clothes hanger clip -- thickness of the hanger does not matter -- the clip will fit them all whether they are fat or thin
2
Freezer Bag Clip -- and they are never bothered by the cold. Works every time and over and over with no breakage at all. When the bag is empty I place the clip on the edge of the dish drainer so I don't lose track of them for the next time.
3
Wire Holder/Organizer -- not only does it organize tiny wires (like ear buds or USB cords) but you can also hang it on a tack to keep it in its place
4
Sock holder -- nobody buys clothes pins anymore so binder clips take over the small jobs they used to do
5
Can be used as an additional clamp when gluing papers together
6
Place Card Holder -- decorated to match your theme of course!
7
Emergency Skirt Repairs -- can actually be worn on the body in a pinch, so to speak, LOL -- until you can get things fixed permanently
8
Book Marks
9
Tooth Paste Tidy's
10
Wrapping Paper and Ribbon organizers
11
Phone Dock -- Clip both ends of a business card and stand it up -- then slip in the slim phone and you are good to go hands free
12
Emergency cuff links -- must use small ones for this, medium's are too big
13
Pen or pencil "roll guard" -- light weight, too

I didn't think about using them as a stand. I use one to clip my recipes onto a cabinet door handle, that way it is off the counter so I have space to work.
Thanks Marcia
