In this DIY, I'm teaching you how to make a desk organizer from recycled cereal boxes & cardboard tubes :)

These desk organizers are incredibly cute and creative! All you need is some old boxes, cardboard and glue!

Let's have some fun! ;)

Step 1: Gather Your Tools and Supplies

Step 2: Create the Base

I have picked a Old El Paso kit Box to serve as base and I removed the lid.

Step 3: Decorating the Base

  • Choose your design paper and sign where it need to be fold.
  • Fold the paper along the marked lines.
  • Using PVA glue stick it on the box.

Step 4: Preparing the First Compartment

  • Take the biggest box and sign at 6" high.
  • Using a scissor or a cutter cut along the lines.

Step 5: Decorating the Box

  • Cover the inside and outside of the box using glue and colored paper.
  • For a prettier effect cover the corners with washi tape.

Step 6: Stick It on the Base

Put glue on the bottom of the box and stick it on the base.

Step 7: Repeat the Process

Make sure you do each row smaller than the previous one.

Step 8: Decorating the Organizer

Decorate the organizer using paper butterflies, flower, gem stones and buttons.

Step 9: Video Tutorial (for a Better Understanding of the Project)

For some people it's easier to watch a video than following step by step photos.

So if you are one of them I hope that this video will help you !

Step 10: That's It!
