Claudia at SuperZiper made this book/file rack from an old clothes hanger. She uses it to hold her library books near the door so she doesn’t forget to take them on the way out. Although her blog is in Portuguese, it’s pretty easy to glean the process from the photos.

  1. That is such a great idea! I can see a bunch of them together for magazines, but I love the idea of using them for library books. I’m always forgetting those things.

  2. what an awesome idea! perfect for keeping my Craft magazines out of harm’s way. I had to decorate it up a bit, but it turned out lovely!

  3. My childs class made art using a 12×12 tile. I needed a way for us to display the art and we found it. Thank you so much. I like this so much that I shared with all of the parents in his class so they all could display the art.
