DECORATIVE DESK ORGANIZER

Hi all, Welcome back!!! Today am going to post the tutorial of making a desk organizer by using cereal boxes.



MATERIALS NEEDED:

  1. Cereal boxes ( 2 nos)
  2. Gift wrapper
  3. scissors
  4. glue
  5. Embellishments for decoration
PROCEDURE:

Two similar cereal boxes are needed for this project. The varying heights of the three boxes are 9 inches, 7 inches and 5 inches respectively. You can have your own ratios. 
Cut the first cereal box to the height of 9 inches from the bottom. 



Take the second box and cut 7 inches from bottom. Fold the flaps of the remaining part , tape it to form the third box.


Arrange the boxes in the ascending order of their height and glue them together.


Allow it to dry for sometime and then cover it up with gift wrapper.


I folded a small piece of cardboard to  create partition in the smaller box.  . Now you can decorate this organizer of  your choice. 


I decorated it using  foam roses, foam cut borders , glittering hearts and white pearls. 


I use this decorative organizer to store my craft supplies. Thus a beautiful organizer, made by recycling boxes is ready to decorate your desk. 



Happy Crafting!!!
