Easy homemade clip organizer!

I was blog hopping the other night and came across this AWESOME blog post on how to make your own clippy organizer! Janie from Janie's Craft Closet was so generous to share how she created this organzier and where she got the tutorial from. I IMMEDIATELY ordered everything from!

Here are some photos of the end result!

Here is the entire organizer. This is a revolving shoe rack that you can order for around $21 on! (Right now it is out of stock though!) This is very simple and fast to put together. It comes in seven basic parts not including hardware but the instructions are very simple. Needless to say it was up in about 3 mins and I was decorating it!

I purchased these shower curtain hooks ($3-5) and removed the beads. They can hold more than one ID badge holder($1.99/12 pk.)/bag.

See how I bent the arms down... It gives me more space to hang as I quickly ran out of space on the middle tier. I used ID badge holder clips ($18/100 pk.) since they were a lot less expensive than the hooks for the clip it up. If you dont have time to waste (Because this way is time consuming), purchase the clip it up hooks and make your life easier!

I did the same for the bottom tier so that I could hang some large packaged ribbon and twine embellishments in front of my acrylic stamp sets (see all those MSS and Peachy Stamps!) I should have more!

The basket at the top is how all baskets come. I cut out a 9.5" circle with a 1.5" hole in the center using SCAL to create a base for the basket so that it could hold more stuff. I will eventually weave ribbon through the rungs to create sides.

This is a sneak peek of what I am working on this week. It has taken me two days so far and I have created about 20 roses and it is only half way covered! Yikes!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love this!!! Thanks do much for sharing!!!

  2. Wow, Jessica. Your organizer turned out great. I have messed around with mine several times. I even turned the baskets upside down to see if I liked that too... lol I plan on picking up the plant drip pans to use as baskets to hold tons of more stuff. I like the idea of bending the arms out - might have to try that. BTW, thanks for the shout-out. And your roses look beautiful. Can't wait to see the rest.
