Cereal box turned Desktop organizer – from my craft’s corner

An easy DIY to do at zero cost which will keep your table top neat and organized.

Isn’t it nice and compact?

I am using it to store my craft supplies like quilling tools, paper strips, glue bottles/sticks /scissor, pen, pencil, ruler etc.

All you need to make this beautiful organizer are-

  • Empty cereal/corn flakes boxes (3)
  • Gift wrapping paper
  • Black tape
  • Scissor /paper cutter
  • Glue

First of all take 3 equal size cereal box and align them together. Like this

Cut top cover part of all the boxes

Then glue the three boxes vertically and tape them horizontally make it more durable.

Measure a certain length from the bottom of front side and mark using a pen. Do the same thing on other side of the box (only front part) and join the two points making a straight line parallel to the bottom (horizontal line)

This will make the front.

Now tilt the organizer and take the marked point and join it with the upper point through a slanting straight line like this.

Now cut along this slant using paper cutter or scissor. Do this for the whole box. You will get this

I have taped the joined edges to be more stable to handle for the time being.. Your DIY desktop organizer model is ready.

Now wrap the whole box using gift wrapping paper and glue.

I have taped all the edges with black durable tape. It gives a nice and clean look too to the organizer.

Lastly take two equal cardboard sheets (using the ones we cutted out at the starting from the boxes) and wrap them using the same wrapping paper. And tape them on one edge. [measurement for these will be the width of the first cereal box.

Paste them like this to make 3 compartments.

Your brand new durable desktop organizer from waste material is ready. Fill it up with all the materials that were messing up your study /work/craft table.

Last compartment is big enough to hold small books also.

I hope you like my work. Tell me in the comments how you feel about this. :=)

Happy crafting

Much love,
