Tutorial: Desk Organizer

This project first caught my eye when I saw a post by Julie Turner and I was really excited to reproduce it and make it my own! I think you’ll love it too!

And make sure you read ALL the way to the bottom of my post today …. because I have got TWO exciting specials to share with you! Check under my signature to see what they’re all about! 😉

You’ll need:
Three pieces of cardstock the same colour, measuring:
8.25 x 6.5:
5 x 6″
6 x 3.25″


And six pieces of Designer Series Paper, measuring:
2.75 x 1.75″
1.25 x 1.75″
(2 pieces) 1.75 x .75″
(2 pieces) 2.75 x .75″

Let’s start with the smallest piece of cardstock (6 x 3.25″). Along the long side, score at 1″ from each side. Then score along the short side at 3 and 4″.

Burnish all your scorelines.

Make the small cuts as shown below. Cut a straight line next to the ‘rectangles’; cut slightly inward on the ‘squares’.

Repeat the above steps for your other pieces of cardstock. Along each long side, score at 1″ from the edge.
For the largest piece, score at 4.25 and 5.25″ along the short side.
For the medium piece, score at 3 and 4″ along the short side.

Burnish, and cut tabs as shown.

Apply Tear and Tape and Mini Glue Dots as shown below.

Attach as shown below.

Make small diagonal cuts along the top as shown.

Repeat the process above for the other two boxes.

Next, attach Designer Series Paper to the fronts of the two smaller boxes.

Apply Tear and Tape to the side of one of your small boxes, to attach it to the other small box.

Use Tear and Tape to attach the three boxes together, and attach Designer Series Papers to the sides as shown.

Fill with your tools/adhesives!

I hope you have fun creating this project! It’s not only beautiful, but really useful too!

Happy Stampin’!
