Need a chip clip? Or maybe just something to keep a bag or package closed? All you need to do is recycle a wine cork into a useful bag closer. Check out these ones I made.
The steps are quick and simple to recycle any wine cork into a bag closer. First place the cork on a cutting board and with a sharp knife slowly cut down about halfway through the middle of the cork. Then cut a bit at an angle down again to create the opening at the top of the cork. See photos below for a closeup of the cuts.
You can make the cut wider for thicker bags too. Just angle your cut down into the center cut for a wider opening. If the opening it not wide enough, just cut down again at an angle until you have a wider opening as needed.
Conclusion: Recycling old wine corks into bag closers is a great way to repurpose old corks and seal your packages closed.
