  • How to make a drawer organizer. Recycled Organizer - Step 1
    Step 1

    You have your shoe box and you have to measure the length of the box, mine 38.6 cm. You don't have to measure the lid, its the other part.
    Note: I did this with another box because I forgot to take pictures with the original one.

    Measure half of the length of your box, and from there you have to make a vertical mark and then cut it. Then you have to cut the sides too.

    You have to reinfore the sides with masking tape or duct tape. I did it with masking tape. It should look like this.

    I decorated and glued with different types of paper 'cause I didn't have enough paper. In the end I used 3 different types of paper.

    Now I added a cardboard base on the back because it wasn't sturdy enough and I forgot add wrapping paper to it... which is obvious.
    From the bottom part of the box you should leave about 2 cm from both sides (This way you actually close the box easier...REMEMBER LEAVE 2 CM SPACE ON BOTH SIDES)
    and then you got cut 2 pieces of foam board of like 3cm of height and 15 cm of width to then glue it with the hot glue gun after the 2 cms and then you a cut another piece of foam board that would be the top of a drawer. For me doing the drawer for the drawer itself was difficult.
    After make making the drawer then make 2 holes with the help of an exacto knife in order to glue a ribbon or a cord for the drawer.

    Now we will make 2 compartments that will have have 2 sides only and 2 compartments with 3 sides using the foam board. And glue it with glue gun.
    This photo with the 2 sides and a bottom.

    So if you noticed quite well, the front one is the one has 2 sides... and the back has 3 sides.. I made the back one with 3 sides because I want the box to be flexible and be able to open it and close it quite well.
    So I didn't glue it the carton base because it wasn't flexible.

    Now in the front part, I glued another piece of foam board, some stickers and used the marker to write the word Bisuteria (Spanish is my first language)which means Jewelry making.
    Made some dividers (my opinion was too much space) and made some dividers with foam board. You can do it here and the bottom drawer. And yes it did rocked... and the end. You can put notes using push pins and the like.

    NOTE: I made this project last year, it seems I forgot to upload it here.
