DIY #1

This cereal box organizer! My siblings made it for me and I love it πŸ™‚ It’s super easy (just excuse the fact that I have no pictures….)

  1. Grab a large cereal box. If you want it to fit notebooks, folders, and binders, than family size works! If you don’t have a family size cereal box then you may need to find a different use for it- I definitely recommend using a bigger box πŸ™‚
  2. Using a ruler, draw lines on your box. Depending on how tall you want the front part to be, draw a line. You can measure it against a folder or notebook, but I did around halfway up the box. Also draw lines going from that to the back top on each side.
  3. Cut on the lines you marked. Pretty self explanatory…
  4. Decorate! My tip is to use scrapbook paper, but if you have a ton of washi tape that would work too. Honestly you can do anything- handletter, paint, watercolor… Make it you!

DIY #2

Art! This is the best way ( I think) to make your desk you + usable! If you’re super artsy (unlike me haha) then you can make your own art, but if not you can use google, Pinterest, or really anything! A lot of the things I end up using are actually for a class (like a memory verse or important things I need to remember) and I use a cute font to make them adorable!

t i p s:

  1. You don’t need fancy software or skills to make these! If I can make them so can you πŸ™‚ I mostly use Microsoft word or publisher (word is easier)- google docs is great but I don’t love the fonts. There are some fun ones but I have favorites on my computer as well.
  2. Fonts: fonts are actually super easy. When I find a font I like, I google the name (and add font to the end) and websites come up with them! Then I download the font and reopen the design program I’m using so that it includes the new font. (some of) My favorites:

Just google “picture frame dry erase board” and you can see a ton of these! They are super easy to make.

  1. Find a picture frame with glass on the front. Your family probably has some old ones, but if not they’re quite cheap at thrift stores.
  2. Cut a piece of paper (or scrapbook paper) to fit the picture frame.
  3. NOTE: if you used scrapbook paper just remember to pick something that works with dry erase markers!
  4. Decorate! You can handletter/draw something- or if you used scrapbook paper you can be done!
  5. Write! You can draw or write notes to yourself… or use it as a cute tray!

 

 

 

Well…. sorry that this post wasn’t awesome! I tried to make it pretty good, but it’s probably not lol.
