DIY Desk Organisation Step by Step Tutorial

Ever feel like your drawer is a never ending abyss of crafty products and stationery items? Us too!

To help your organise your items in handy compartments, Maxine is going to show you how to use the gorgeous First Edition Storyteller papers to really jazz up your desk!



What you Need

First Edition Storyteller 12x12 Paper Pad

Dovecraft A4 White Card


How to Make  

1. Begin by measuring the height of your drawer. Write down this measurement, as you want to make the boxes inside your drawer to be 2cm shorter.

2. Take an A4 sheet of Dovecraft white card, decide the width and height you would like your box to be and score your card accordingly. From each side, Maxine has measured down 4cm on each side (4cm) and scored a line along each side following her height measurement.


3.Make a vertical cut on the top and bottom left and right corner, where the score line overlaps.

Cut 4 pieces of complementing First Edition Storyteller papers to fit the sides of your box. Adhere to the inside of the box with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape. Create the box shape by folding the score lines and sticking the sides together with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape.


Repeat the step above to create more boxes. Vary the width of your boxes to hold different sized items! Your boxes should fit nicely inside your drawer for you to start filling in!
