It’s a new year and the perfect time to organise your stationery! Make sure your desk is the perfect place for work or study with everything tidy and in its place. Create your own desk tidy as a special place to store your favourite notebooks, paper and pens and you’ll never have to worry about losing your stationery again!
You will need
- 2 cereal boxes
- White and coloured paper
- Paint or felt tip pens
Gather your materials and make sure you have everything you need ready to use.
Decorate a white sheet of paper to create the pattern for your desk tidy. We have used paint, but you could use felt tip pens, colouring pencils or coloured paper.
Glue or tape two cereal boxes together.
Draw a diagonal line on each side of the cereal boxes and cut out to form a lower part and an upper part as in the photo. This is your desk tidy, now you just have to decorate it!
Start by decorating the inside with coloured paper.
Line the outside of the boxes with your decorated patterned paper.
You could also create a divider by folding some of the leftover card from your cereal boxes, as in the photo. Cover your divider in your patterned paper to match the outside.
And there you go! Your desk tidy is ready to use! A pretty desk accessory, perfect for storing notebooks, notepads, pens and other stationery and having everything close to hand!
