This summer I am a guest designer for Ephemera's Vintage Garden. The digital paper pack that I have been working with is the Love and Romance digital paper pack which can be found on Debbie's Etsy store Here. I absolutely love all of Debbie's designs. This paper pack has 6 papers that you can print to use for your projects. Please head over to her store and check out all of her goodies she has designed.
So below is the step-by-step instructions with photos. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Starting with a large cereal box and glue the top closed and make sure the bottom is glued tight.
Then cut the box in half. Line up both of the halves and glue them together with Fabri-tac (or any strong glue). Allow these to dry for a few minutes.
Measure from the back top along the side 1 1/2" and make a mark. Do this on both sides. Then measure from the bottom front up 2" and make a mark. Using a ruler, connect the two marks. This will be the line that you will cut along to get the slant on the sides of the organizer.
Along the front measure 2" up from the bottom and draw a line across the front. Cut the front of the box off at the line.
Now to make the cubby for the pencil holder/can. You will see in the video that the final organizer is different than the pictures in this tutorial. I recommend leaving a 1/2" lip at the bottom and cutting the entire piece over to side, which removes the tab. This will allow the pen holder to fit into the space. Adjust the space according to the size of your can. Fold this piece back towards the inside of the box and adhere it to the center of the box.
Here. Extra cereal box can be used as well. Glue the boards to your organizer box. Once dry cut off any excess board.
Please let me know if you have questions about the process that I took to make the desk organizer. I know that I did not give you any measurements, but that is due to the cereal box. The cereal box that you use may be different than the one that I chose.
I hope you have enjoyed the video and the tutorial. Have a wonderful day!
