Don’t Throw Plastic Bread Clip Away Any More

Updated on October 5, 2012

Don't Throw Plastic Bread Clips Away Any More !

You and I will normally throw plastic bread clip away after we finish eating bread. Plastic bread clip is also known as bread tag, bread tab and many more. It is important in our life. This is because it tights opening of plastic bag which contains bread. The purpose is to prevent air entering into the plastic bag in order to keep bread in fresh condition. Besides, we can know the expiry date of bread from plastic bread clip. Plastic bread clips can be manufactured with different colors such as pink, light green, etc. Because of this, I suggest that do not throw it away anymore. I have some ideas to reuse it to make simple thing in home.

Reuse Plastic Bread Clip To Make A Label For The Cord Of The Electrical Appliance.

There are many cords behind our television cabinet. It will look very messy. Sometimes we will confuse when switching our electrical appliance because we do not which plug have to turn on. So, we can use a permanent ink marker to write the names of our appliance on the plastic bread tags. Then, we can hang it on the cords. After that, we will not wrong in turning on our electrical appliance.

Reuse Plastic Bread Clips To Make Scrabble Tiles.

We can collect plastic bread clips as many as possible. Then we write down the alphabets on plastic bread clips by using a permanent marker pen. After that, we have our own scrabble tiles. In addition, we can draw our own scrabble board. Then,we can enjoy this interesting game!!!

Reuse Plastic Bread Clip To A Make Wine Glass Charm.

Wine glass charms are small accessories that can be attached to the stem of a wine glass. In party, there is a lot of wine glasses. So wine glass charms act as "identity cards" to allow us to find our wine glasses easily.

We can save money because we can make wine glass charms by ourselves. It requires a few minutes only. We just write our name on a piece of plastic bread clip and attach it to the stem of our glasses. After that, we will not accidentally taking other's wine glass.

If we invite our friends to our party, we can make wine glass charms more beautiful.At the end of the party, our guests can bring it back to home as memories.

When they collect the plastic bread clips (coupons) until a certain number, you can buy their favorite things for them as their rewards. Your children will definitely ebulliently.

Reuse Plastic Bread Clip To Make A Chain.

The materials which are necessary are 2 plastic bread clips, string, glue, sliver color paint and clear lacquer.


1) Stick two plastic paper clips together.

2) Paint the plastic paper clips evenly.

3) You can also draw your favorite things on it.

4) Spray clear to make it shiny.

5) Attach a string on it.

* You may also buy a loaf of bread to get the plastic bread clip which has your newborn baby' s date of birth and make up it. Then, you can give it to your baby as his or her first gift.

Bread Tag Halloween Jewelry

Reuse Plastic Bread Clips To Make A Collage.

Just use your creativity in making of a collage by using plastic bread clips.

Paste it on anything such as unused bottles and many more.

After that, you can use it to decorate your home.

Tip: Do it with your children to enhance your relationship between you and your children at weekends.

Reuse Plastic Bread Clips To Replace Stones In Our Garden.

      What clever ideas. I have never thought of doing anything with them. I don't like them on the bread and always take them off and use a twist-tie. Usually I bake my own bread though so I guess I'm not wasting too much.

      I have spent 8 years thinking up what to use paper rosettes for.

      I will give you some for the bread clip. These ideas are strictly for kids that Do Not put things in their months.

      Use them for play dates. Pass them out for fun things accomplished for the day, include the friendship bracelet for storing them. They can trade them later too.

      For a party put "save bread clips on the invitation" to bring to party. Make little mosaics as an activity.

      This for grandma's house.

      I like the garden pot. Stick them on the pot as decoration and put a clip of succulent in inside for visitors to take home to remember their visit or take to Mom and Dad. When they come back ask them if their plant is still alive. Give them a decorated bread clip for a collection. See how many they collect and how big the plant gets.

      Use these for your lens and use them to develop more ideas. I love this lens. Run with it.
