Step 1: Base for Drawer
Step 2: Choose Box
Choose a larger box and smaller box that approximately fits inside. Using the larger box we will create the base for the drawer organizer.
Step 3: Trace All Sides of Larger Box
Trace the top and bottom twice, so you end up with four big squares.
Only trace the sides once. For Side 1 and Side 2 cut two slits at the end and cut.
Step 4: Cut Opening for Drawer
Trace the back of the smaller box with a sharpie on the front of the larger box.
Using an exacto knife cut the opening.
Step 5: Glue Pieces
Glue the traced and cut pieces to corresponding sides of the box. For Side 1 and Side 2 fold over flaps into the opening of the base.
Step 6: Drawer Sliders
With excess cardboard create drawer slides by cutting two rectangular pieces and fold in center. Glue to bottom sides of the base.
Step 7: Drawer

Step 8: Cut Opening
Using an exacto knife cut an opening for the drawer.
Step 9: Adjust (if Needed)
If the smaller box does not fit into base opening adjust by cutting off part of the front and back. DO NOT cut bottom flap!
Use the flap to rebuild drawer frame.
Step 10: Drawer Knobs
Cut small incisions for drawer knobs into the front of the box. Push travel caps through the incision a screw in place. Add glue to secure if needed.
