Step 1: Draw Sections on Cardboard

Take a measurement of a drawer in which you need to make sections.

Draw the measurement on the cardboard by utilizing sketch pen and ruler.

This will help you cut straight lines required in the next step.

Step 2: Create a Cavity

Create the cavity on the cardboard for the two lines as shown in figure.

This is required so as the other pieces have a sturdier joint with the base.

Otherwise, the partition column may collapse.

Step 3: Paste the Other Pieces

Add the rest of cardboard pieces in the cavity with the use of glue gun.

Install it inside the drawer and place your materials in a segregated manner.

Your drawer sections is ready!!!
