There’s nothing worse than craving a salty, crunchy chip, and opening the package to find they’ve gone stale. (You know I’m right!)
To prevent such a catastrophe, you must make this DIY Dollar Store Magnetic Chip Clip Holder!
Not only will you have lots of chip clips to help keep those salty snacks fresh and tasty, but you’ll also have a fantastic way to organize those chip clips!
Alright, so people, I’m telling you that if you’re not a regular Dollar Tree shopper, you need to become one, stat.
It is my absolute favorite place for cheap party supplies (read my post on the best Dollar Tree party supplies), and cheap craft supplies (read my post on 10 craft supplies to buy at Dollar Tree, and the follow up with ten more).
Oh, I also love it for strange stove burner covers with roosters plastered all over them. At the risk of sounding like an idiot, I really have no idea what you do with a burner cover. I’m guessing it’s something for an electric stove. . . ? I’ve never had one of those so I don’t really know.
Yeah, so anyway, I bought a set of two of these burner covers for, well, $1 (now $1.25), never planning to use them for their intended purpose. Instead, I always planned to use them for something “magnety” (made up word referring to something that can be used with magnets.).
Anyway, these bad boys hid out in my china cabinet for about six months until a wonderful moment of inspiration hit. You see, I was giving my children their 78th snack of the day when I got super annoyed that I couldn’t find any more binder clips (my makeshift chip clips), in my junk drawer.
At that moment I knew that my world would become a better place if I always had easy access to chip clips so that my children’s snacks could be easily resealed and not spill all over the pantry as they usually do. Out of hiding came the rooster covers.

How to Make a Magnetic Chip Clip Holder
Since roosters aren’t my favorite animal in the world, I decided to cover this bad boy up, pronto. I traced around the burner cover on a piece of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper, and then cut it out.
Next up, I applied a thin layer of ModPodge (decoupage glue) to the top of the burner cover and put my scrapbook paper on top. Bye bye, rooster!
I smoothed out the wrinkles, and after it seemed dry, I put another thin layer of decoupage glue on top.
Once everything was dry, I hot glued a ribbon around the entire edge of the burner cover.
Then I painted some clothespins with acrylic paint and hot glued tiny magnets to the back of each one. Super duper easy!
And you guys, for real, this has been a total game changer in the world of proper snack sealing and storage.
I love a good Dollar Store craft and organization combo project (kind of like my Dollar Tree pizza pan memo board)!
