We love how our wall bulletin organizer dressed up our work space so much that we created a coordinating cubbie to hold pens, notes and of course, our PS Swatchbook. Follow our steps to create a desk organizer of any size, and cover it in your favorite wrapping paper.
A great back to school craft to get your tweens and teens organized or spruce up your own desk (adults can celebrate back to school, too!).
Use the instructions below as a guide to customize cubbies to whatever height & width you prefer to suit your own organizational needs!
This cubby measures 11” wide x 3” deep x 3” tall.
Cut chipboard for 1 cubby base.
Cut chipboard for 4 cubby walls.
Tape pieces, as shown, with space in between. (Tip: use the edge of a piece of chipboard as a spacer)
Cover cubby with decorative paper (decorative side down) by placing connected pieces on top of decorative paper (tape side down). Decorative paper should measure approximately 1” – 2” beyond chipboard pieces. Cut along diagonal lines.
