Even those small bread clips can be reused or made into a unique craft project. This is a guide about uses for bread ties.
I hate when I go to unplug something because there are a bunch of unidentifiable cords plugged in. Many bread bags come with those little plastic ties to hold them shut. These will fit around almost any cord and can be written on with a Sharpie to help identify all of your cords. They are especially helpful with computer cords, so that you don't accidentally unplug the wrong one.

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

Make a unique conversation piece necklace using only bread package clips and a chain!
Approximate Time: Half hour or so, depending on how many you have!
Yield: 1 necklace
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?
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?
