How to make organizers using an entire box in 10 steps

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to turn a box into a desktop organizer.

1. Make sure you have a box that can fit the size paper you usually use at work (legal, letter, etc...)



2. Remove the flaps and save them for later




3. Cut the long side of the box in half


4. Cut out a slot on both sides of the box


5. Stick the long flap in the slots as shown


6. Tape the bottom flap so it does not catch paper

7. Admire your organizer!
8. Tape the short flaps together to create the support for the other organizer


9. Place the support on top of one of the organizers

10. Place the other organizer (the other half of the box) on top of the support

You can use post-it notes to label the contents of each compartment.
It saves space, uses up old boxes, is recyclable, is recyclING, and is environmentally friendly!

There you have it: 10 easy steps to making an organizer out of an entire box, with no leftovers!
