Turn sugar bowl lids into charming holders for vintage love notes and more.

Vintage sugar bowl lids turned into photo or place card holders.

FLIP YOUR LID. Snap up orphaned sugar bowl lids at a flea market for a song, then turn them into charming label holders to mark "decaf" and "regular" coffee at a Valentines's Day Buffet—or to show off a love note on a breakfast-in-bed tray. Simply twist wire around a pen to form the label holder; twist other end around a lid's knob (see below).

HOW TO: Gather baling wire, a wire cutter, needle-nose pliers and a fine Sharpie marker. Cut the wire to the desired length. Ki's secret to the perfect (or at least pretty darn near-perfect!) circle loops that hold the photo or ephemera is to use the pliers to wrap the wire several times around the marker. Easy!
