Keep your desk organised with this neat (in more ways than one) desk tray.

This simple creation made from up-cycled cardboard is designed so you can create, stack and join as many trays on top of each other as you like.

To make one tray, all you need is two Makedo Re-clips, some cardboard (keep the boxes that copy paper comes in), the template we’ve provided with these instructions, a ruler and cutting device.

We have provided two templates. One is a laser cut template and the other is a printable A4 sheet pattern.

Step 1: Find

Source cardboard from around your home. We’ve used cardboard from an open packaging box.
