Chicken Rings

Clip to ScrapBook #1

One of the things still on my "to do list" for getting my room ready is deciding how to attach the book labels to my book baskets. I am using the small crates found at Wal Mart for my book baskets. Several of you have mentioned "chicken rings" as a way of attaching the labels. Where do you buy these and is there another name that these handy items may be called??? Thanks for your help!!

The direct link didn't work for some reason so go here:

http://www.crystalspringsbooks.com/

and type in chicken rings in the search box.

would shower curtain rings work? I've never heard of chicken rings, but it seems like shower curtain rings would accomplish the same thing, but maybe be cheaper. Also, W-M has key rings in their craft section...that would definitely work.

zip ties would work also. They are in the automotive section at stores.

chicken rings and found the site www.chickenrings.com .They were $13.00 for 150 assorted sizes of rings. Don't know if that is better than Crystal Springs or not.

When I first saw this thread I thought it was about cafeteria food! We have "chicken rings" at least once a month at our school!

zip ties

Zip ties are so much cheaper than chicken rings! At W-M they have like 1,000 of them for like 8-10 bucks. I use zip ties for all sorts of things around the house. They are very handy!

I used the loose-leaf rings (the hinged metal things) in the small size to attach my labels. They were free in our supply room :-)

I'm with ecsmom...I thought you were talking about school cafeteria food!

I have never heard the term "chicken rings". I've always called them "book rings".

Metal rings

Reading this made me think of another way I use metal keyrings. Coats and jackets usually have a tag loop near the neck. Pull the keyring apart and put the tag through it like you would keys. This makes a great hanger for coats/jackets that won't slip off the coat hooks. Without these, my kids coats were always on the floor. One of my kids' dads thought of this several years ago.

My Dollar Tree has the zip ties. I just bought some today. There are 100 of them in the package for $1. There are two different sizes in the package and various colors.

I went to a workshop once and the lady doing it was using chicken rings and she said you could buy a lot of them for cheap at places like Rural King or Farm and Home Supply. I have never tried though.
