Introduction: DIY Drawer Organizers Made From Cardboard and Contact Paper
I decided to make some drawer organizers for my small utensil drawer. I originally had some different sized boxes as organizers, but I wanted it more organized and something that would fit the length of my silverware. This was my first time making these, so it's not perfect, but it works.
1-Gather some cardboard, cereal boxes, or anything sturdy. You can also get contact paper, gift wrap or paper to decorate the cardboard.
2-measure the height, width, and length of the drawer.
3-cut strips of cardboard to fit the length or width of the drawer, making them a bit longer is best, then you can cut to fit.
4- after you decide where you want the dividers, cut slits halfway down, about 1/4" across where the two pieces of cardboard will meet. make sure they fit correctly.
5- attach the contact paper/fabric/gift wrap around the cardboard. Make slits again where your original slits are at.
6-attach all pieces together and organize!
7-for the utensil dividers, I used contact paper to attach both sides of the divider to the parallel divider. no slits were made in that one.
This is my first instructable, I have yet to figure out how to make descriptions under each picture :/
Next is making a cardboard cabinet for my toilet paper rolls, adding pictures to my white cabinet in the bathroom, and making reed diffuser oils.
