If the paper on your desk is leaving you overwhelmed and anxious, consider making a Paper Box Desk Organizer. This fun craft will help you keep track of your most important items. Recycle craft ideas are always fun, but this project takes it to another level. Instead of creating a decorative piece you will only look at and admire, you'll create a project that is practical and versatile. All you need is three post office boxes and some paint to get started. Be sure to add your own fun embellishments to the project and turn it into an original piece.

Primary Technique: Paper Crafts

Easy

Materials:

  • 3 USPS Medium Boxes
  • Black paint
  • Foam brush
  • Glue
  • Paint pen
  • Masking tape

 

Instructions:

  1. Take lids off of the medium boxes or fold them into the box.
     
  2. Paint your box. I went with black from mine.
     
  3. Glue together all three boxes. Be sure to use a lot!
     
  4. Use a paint pen and create a design.

Papers, Papers, and more papers! They are everywhere in my office I can't find my desk because of all these documents. So this DIY is perfect for me. But I also have a need to store my scrapbook papers. Does anyone know where I can find some boxes in those sizes? That would be great.

I believe it's ILLEGAL to use boxes from the U.S. Post Office for anything other than what they were meant for: mailing. After a box is used, it would probably be O.K.

Uh, no. The USPS sells the boxes as a convenience product for use by customers for mailing items. They may be used in any manner the purchaser chooses new or recycled.

Those USPS boxes aren't strong enough to hold the weight of so many books like the picture shows. After awhile, they will sag and collapse. And, putting the books upright on the desk would take less space than the boxes, and a couple of wire mesh book ends would keep the books upright with very little space requirement.

Hi there, Thanks so much for the feedback, we appreciate your insight! - Julia from FaveCrafts
