I really needed a good craft organizer to hold all my pencils, markers, brushes and craft supplies, and had been looking for one in stores for months now.
Recycled & Upcycled Craft Organizer
Inspiration struck one day and I decided that this could be something I could make myself!
I started by collecting supplies for this project—cereal boxes, paper rolls and a big box. The Amplify Mixed Media Shears™ makes it very easy to get a nice clean cut.
Next step was to make these boxes look pretty. I trimmed paper using the SureCut™ Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer and then used mod podge to cover the rolls. I held the paper closed using some wide washi tape.
These paper rolls in themselves would make a pretty and useful pen holder!!
I covered my box and containers with paper and put everything together to make my big organizer. I love the look of natural chipboard with these bright colors here. If you would prefer though, you can paint the insides of the rolls and boxes white.
I then filled my organizer with all of my craft supplies. This is exactly what I needed and it was a fun upcycling and recycling project!
