Clip It Up Wall Mount Organizer
Clip It Up Wall Mount Organizer by Simply Renee
I am in the midst of re-organizing my scraproom. I decided I wanted to make my own Clip It Up Wall Mount Organizer, and I'm sharing with you today my finished results. I deliberately didn't take pictures of my worksurface because it's a mess, as I'm sorting through the rest of my scraproom!

I had saved the clear wrappers from scrapbook orders and purchases for years, and that is what I used to put most of the items in. I have on my new Wall Mount Organizer: flowers, felt goodies, bling, stickers, rubons, and ribbon. (see full-length photo below)

The details: My husband installed this for me with his power tools, an electic screwdriver, I mean. It cost under $30 for two wood dowels (Walmart), 4 brackets (Walmart), screws and wall anchors (stash), shower curtain hangers (Home Depot), and binder clips (Dollar Store). The length overall is about 68", or it could have been 72" as each dowel was 36" in length but I only had room for 68".  The same length from Simply Renee would have cost about $75. A savings of $45!

I had some clear organizers from a binder that I used for flowers.

I don't think I have room for this in my room, but I wanted to share links to Homemade Clip It Up Tabletop Spinner links:
If you have a great organization tip, or have a comment about Clip It Up, please share!!! Now back to my scraproom to finish my re-organization project! :)
