If your kids are like mine, they have tons of art supplies available for their creative projects. Keeping those crayons, markers and colored pencils at the ready for impromptu masterpiece creation is essential for your budding artist. You can keep all of those supplies neatly organized and easily accessible by putting them in a recycled children's desk organizer made from an orange juice carton that was slated for the recycling bin. This recycled desk organizer can hold a lot of art supplies and can be easily toted to the car or into the doctor's office waiting room. Read on to learn how you can create this simple desk organizer in just a few easy steps.
What you will need:
Step 1: Preparation
Thoroughly wash and dry the inside and outside of the orange juice container. Use your craft knife to cut a large flap on the front of the carton. Then, repeat on the opposite side. Fold the edge of the flaps so they easily open and close.
Step 2: Get Punching
Step 3: Craft the Door Pulls
Step 4: Create a Glue Stick Hole
