Clip it Up Kitchen Style

Hi Everyone!

It's Barbara here to share my altered Mini Clip it Up.  Now I know we all think of scrapbooking organization when it comes to Clip it Up products. But there are so many other wonderful uses for them. Today I am going to show you how to use it for your kitchen. I call it my Kitchen Mini Clip it Up. The papers were donated by My Little Yellow Bicycle, and ironically match my kitchen colors pretty well. I wanted to paint the Mini Clip it Up white, so while I was waiting for the paint to dry , I started making some recipe cards to hang on my Kitchen Mini Clip it Up.  They were a lot of fun to make, and look so cute.  I can't wait to fill it up and Clip it UP! Here are some photos.

For the base of the Kitchen Mini Clip it Up I cut a circle, and then used shaped scissors for the scallops around the circle. I then used a white signo pen to put a dot on each scallop. The shapes on the circle were cut free hand out of the paper. I have to admit I didn't quite get the paper around the pole quite right, so that is why you see the scalloped papers at the bottom of the pole. I ran out of paper and had to make do. I am sure we all do this from time to time. Mistakes happen and you do your best to fix them. But all in all I think it fits my kitchen perfectly!

I hope you enjoy it, and that it inspires you to find different and unique uses for Clip it Up products!

Have a wonderful day!



  1. How cool is that! What a great idea of using the Clip-it-up for recipes.

  2. How cute!! That is really adorable! I love the recipe cards. Too bad I don't have any, but you gave me another idea. My kitchen counter is always loaded with school notes, artwork, pretty much anything my kids remove from their folders. I could keep a CIU on my counter just to clip up all of the papers they bring home every day. I remember Carolyn (I think) had installed an under the shelf CIU and I wanted to use that in my kitchen, but I didn't have the space for it. But a regular CIU is also a great idea! Thanks!

  3. Yup yup I want this for my husband for his suduko and recipes when he cooks very cool.

  4. I think it is very charming. Did a great job cutting the items by hand - that is not easy to do. The recipe cards are fantastic - been in many recipe swaps and nothing this good ever. It really, really looks great!

  5. Really darling recipe cards Barbara! I just love them!!! Maybe that would inspire me to want to cook more so I could look at my cute recipe cards!
    The CIU is also done really cute! I especially love how you did the handle! Great Job!!!
    Thanks for all your hard work and sharing your creativity with all of us!

  6. Barbara - this is so sweet! Love your clear directions.

  7. Love this idea!!! I am having a wedding shower for my niece. I was planning on asking ea guest to bring their fav recipe or two and then was giving her a recipe box to put them all in. Well, now I know what the recipe box will be! LOVE it!! Thanks for sharing.

  8. I KNOW I commented on this, Barbara! I think Blogger is hating me right now! LOLOL. I LOVE this idea and your altered mini is fantastically ADORABLE!!!!! I LOVE it!!!!
