Paper organizer for the kitchen

I belong to a few discussion - friendship groups on On one of the lists geared toward homemaking, we talked about recycling trash into useful home items. I told them about this organizer I made years ago and Tracey want to see pictures. It is a very low-cost craft. Start with a large flat style Priority Mail carton. Cut it diagonally through the middle and seal the ends. Glue the 2 box pieces together and that will be the base.

Cover the outside (I used fabric)
Cover the inside (I used scrap book paper)
Put 4 feet on the bottom (I used wood door handles)
Now, you are ready to organize your papers!


  1. What a clever and useful, low cost craft! I think this would be perfect to hold the monthly birthday/anniversary cards on my desk.

  2. How cute is that! Thanks for sharing!

  3. How cute is this! Right down to the wooden doorknobs. I love the combination of the fabric and the scrapbooking paper.
