Binder Clip Stand Up "Recipe Holder" & Other Uses

Marcia McCance


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.

How to Make Binder Clip Stand Up "Recipe Holder" & Other Uses


  • 1Clothes hanger clip -- thickness of the hanger does not matter -- the clip will fit them all whether they are fat or thin
  • 2Freezer 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.
  • 3Wire 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
  • 4Sock holder -- nobody buys clothes pins anymore so binder clips take over the small jobs they used to do
  • 5Can be used as an additional clamp when gluing papers together
  • 6Place Card Holder -- decorated to match your theme of course!
  • 7Emergency Skirt Repairs -- can actually be worn on the body in a pinch, so to speak, LOL -- until you can get things fixed permanently
  • 8Book Marks
  • 9Tooth Paste Tidy's
  • 10Wrapping Paper and Ribbon organizers
  • 11Phone 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
  • 12Emergency cuff links -- must use small ones for this, medium's are too big
  • 13Pen or pencil "roll guard" -- light weight, too
