Easy, Awesome, Organized: The Perfect Craft For That Messy Desk

I’m always looking for ways to keep everything organized and accessable, especially in my work space! This desk organizer is everything I look for in a craft: cute, customizable, and easily accomplished in an hour. Double plus bonus: it uses recycled materials. Win win! I appreciate that everything can be categorized and still within reaching distance from my desk chair. How perfect is this for a crafting nook? You could make multiple organizers – one for yarn scraps, one for that collection of gel pens I know you still have, one for all of those random buttons and pins that keep rattling around your junk drawer…

Once you have the process of cutting and folding down, this project really does come together in a snap. Go fun and funky with duct tape like we did, or keep it classy with white and gold tape. You could totally spray paint this and hang it up too. The possibilities are endless! What space are you going to organize with this cute craft?
