Office desk organizer creates a productive workspace. Therefore, it is not surprising that work stalls when paper clips, pens and sticky notes are spread across the entire work surface. However, it is not necessary to blow up your home organizer budget in a prefabricated desk organizer. Combining recycled cardboard materials with a few art supplies and old-fashioned ingenuity will allow you to make your own cardboard desk organizer in less time than it takes to run to the office supply store.
Cut a flat, sturdy piece of cardboard to act as the base of the office desk organizer. Determine the size and shape of the base depending on the amount of space available for an organizer to sit at your desk, and how much you would like the organizer to hold. Cut a roll of empty cardboard paper towels in one piece six inches long and two pieces three inches long. Remove the lid of an empty tissue box by cutting it on the top with scissors. Create additional zones for holding the themes by cutting pieces from a cardboard box to the desired length and height.
Decorate each piece of the office desk organizer before continuing with the assembly. Wrap the pieces roll of paper towels and the box of tissues on colored cardboard. Draw the color designs on the base and on the additional cardboard pieces to customize the look of the organizer.
