I'm will be the first to admit that my desk is a mess. Always. There are times where I'll feel the need to clean it out, and then realize that I probably don't have the time to do it. So here's a simple little tutorial on how to organize at least the little trinkets on your desk, and make sure that those trinkets stay put!
- Cardboard at the length and width of how long you'll want your organizer
- glue stick or white glue
- thin cardboard boxes
- wrapping paper
|Cut cardboard like this!|
Then take some tape and take the sides together. Easy peasy.
Arrange the boxes in a way that you see fit.
There are two ways I suggest you do after you wrap it. You can leave it as is, and allow the boxes to be swapped out for other ones when they get tarnished and torn OR you can secure it completely by gluing the bottom and sticking that to the box frame. Of course, that doesn't allow for movement of the boxes, but you can always do a combination of both!
And viola! A little pop of colour to your desk (or anywhere else in the house). This is super simple and I took a liking to put my phone in one of the boxes as I'm always wondering where I left my phone..
Good luck with this and all your endeavors!
