Even those small bread clips can be reused or made into a unique craft project. This is a guide about uses for bread ties.

That's genius. I marked my cords with stickers, but I like yours better!
I agree! That is genius! Can't wait to make my own! Thanks for a great idea!
I love the idea of using the bread ties for cords. I also use them when I crochet. I usually have several projects going at the same time and switch the needles back and forth but sometimes forget what needle was being used for the gauge. So I use the bread ties, write on them with a sharpie the needle number/letter and attach it to the article I am working on. That way when I go to crochet I just check to make sure what needle number/letter I was using. That way I don't have to buy multiple needles and can go back and forth on different projects.
Make a unique conversation piece necklace using only bread package clips and a chain!
Total Time: Half hour or so, depending on how many you have!

Simple and cute, I like it! Thumbs up.:)
This cute little craft is a great way to recycle and have fun at the same time. You can tie gifts with them or hook a bunch of pals on your shoelaces or pencils. Make some with your friends and trade!
Approximate Time: Time will vary

Those are simply wonderful! You are good at painting faces!
Those are so cute!
These are so cute! I use my ties for my crochet projects, since I have several projects going at the same time, I sometimes use a needle for different projects then find I have forgotten what needle I was using. So I just write on the tag the size of the needles, i.e. H, J, K, I, etc. and attach it to the project so I know what needle to use when I go back to it.
Do not throw away your bread ties from the bread bags. I reuse them for opened frozen veggies, or anything that I open that needs a tie. Keep a stash in your kitchen drawer, you will be amazed how handy they become.
I save my bread ties and have found one use for them. I use them to tie the Christmas lights to our fence. Merry Christmas!
If you can't find a guitar pick, you can instead use one of those small square plastic tabs they use to close bread. My ex used one all the time. He wasn't good for much, but he sure could play that Les Paul.
My favorite uses for these cute little thangs. Please add your ideas. On my Rolodex, I tape bread tabs on the cards most often used. Write the person's name with permanent marker and it's a real time saver. This is one item I can't bring myself to throw away. I have a whole china teacup full, isn't that terrible? Other uses I've heard of are using them to scrape a teflon pan and to label extension cords. Does anyone have any other ideas for using these, maybe especially in craft projects? By Jayne
Reuse bread ties. When you get out of the shower, put gel in your hair (or not!), twist hair around your finger and twist with a bread tie. Much more comfortable than rollers and hair dries quicker too.
I am trying to find the directions to make crosses out of bread ties. I have seen them on line, but there are no instructions. Can anyone offer any help?
I will ask a friend of mine and message you the instructions.
