Next, prepare designer papers measuring:
  • 2 – 2 3/4″ x 3/4″
  • 1″ x 1 3/4″
  • 2 – 3/4″ x 1 3/4″
  • 2 3/4″ x 1 3/4″
Fold, cut and assemble each cardstock piece based on the video instructions. Attach the three boxes together using multipurpose glue or tear and tape adhesive. Decorate each side with designer paper of your choice. To finish it off, tie a ribbon around the outside of the box.
And there you have it! A beautiful little desk caddy perfect for organization! I hope you’ve enjoyed my 12 Days of DIY Gift Ideas so far. I’m excited to share tomorrow’s DIY gift. *Hint* you’re lips are going to love it!
