With just some cardboard and push pins, I was able to whip one up that looks pretty nice.
note: I have since upgraded toCardboard Catch-all Shelf (2nd edition)which I find to be a little prettier and this one is a little bit minimalist for me, but that's just my opinion.
Step 1: You'll Need. . .
- - the template provided here (if you wanted, you could add in some interesting background down the sides and along the top using Photoshop/G.I.M.P./similar programs and the attach the paper to the cardboard)
- - a piece of cardboard cut to 8.5"x11" (if yours has folds like mine did, make sure to align those where you'll want the folds when you form the shelf)
- - small craft blade and scissors
- - some push pins (I used 9, but you could likely use less)
- - glue (optional)
