Got this idea at the 2014 Artistry in Wood in Dayton Ohio. They are meant to hold closed a chip bag after opening. These were turned from Hickory, sanded through to 400 and applied BLO. Then drilled a hole to be end of slot and cut the slots on a bandsaw. Made the simple jig to hold strips of sand paper to smooth out the slot.

Neat idea here socrbent,I like nice crisp potato chips,, but the grandkids seem to have some sort of mental bloc when it comes to re-closing the bag, probably cause it is not programmed into their I-pads or phones. Maybe after I make a couple of these, I can again enjoy crisp chips. Thanks for the Idea.
