I was recently inspired by a DIY Recycled Cereal Box Drawer Dividers Craft Project that I found on I Heart Organizing that I decided I wanted to make my own. I had a perfect box – one from a shipment of eco-friendly craft kits from Artterro that I thought would work perfect – no drawer required – giving me even more organized storage space than my already in use desk drawers.
Using a ruler, pencil and utility knife I first cut strips of scrapbook paper to match the sizes of the boxes we had chosen. I used the instructions at I Heart Organizing as a guideline. Although I used whatever available boxes I managed to coax from the pantry as I’m not especially big on cereal. Next, I attached the scrapbook papers to the boxes with tape, then applied strips of washi tape to the corners to add a decorative touch.
Once the washi tape was on all four corners of the boxes, I put packing tape over the washi taped corners to keep them in place and for extra stability.
Then I placed all of the dividers inside the box. They really are the perfect size for arts and crafts supplies – including my much loved washi tape.
Lastly, I finished off my storage box by adding scrapbooking papers to the outside. Although it would be equally nice to use paint.
