Freddies Clip it Up Craft Tidy

In a crafting circle near you, there will be a bunch of ladies and gents creating their art in a turmoil of clutter…never being able to find what they want at the right time…this is also Freddies Dilemma..

 He has an abundance of craft supplies in several boxes, shelves and cupboards…and you know when you want to make something and for the life of you – you cannot remember what box or cupboard it is in…well this is definitely the answer!

 I am not claiming that this is our idea…oh no! ‘Clip it Up’ is a trade name for a similar product…but YOUTUBE is full of crafty crafters making their own cheaper alternatives and this is ours…

 We have made this one from an old lamp shade and base…plastic folders, paper clips and bulldog clips…all cheap as chips, found in charity shops and The Pound Store…

 It isn’t quite finished as we are going to put something on the top to hide the light fitting…perhaps a plate or something….the base is stuck to a wheelie plant base, so that it can spin around…this was also bought in the good ‘ole Pound Store!

Total Cost

Wheelie Plant stand = £1

Lamp Base = £2
Lampshade = £2 take the cover off
Paper clips and bulldog clips – our own
Clear plastic CD covers (top section) £2 for 100 – Ebay
Filofax clear covers (bottom section) Our Own

TOTAL = £7.00

Of course all the kit inside the pockets, is not included in this price!…lol!

…and here it is all finished and ready to put into our Hobby Holivan Caravan…
OoooOh! we are now soooo organsied!…Now where did I put the key to the caravan! lol!

I think I am going to have to make a few of these to organise my whole life! lol!

    WOW I'm impressed! When you craft you need storage and all the readymade options are usually so expensive so I'm always looking for an alternative! ThanksHugsPene
