Duct Tape Desk Organizer

 Dut Tape Desk Organizer

Happy spring! I’m so excited to share today’s project, mostly because I’m OBSESSED with my new duct tape! I found the pattern on sale at Office Max last weekend. The design is called “Paisley Princess,” and comes in two colors: pink and purple. The tape is actually Scotch brand, not Duck brand, but I haven’t noticed any major differences between the two companies. I have to say, Paisley Princess is probably the prettiest duct tape I’ve owned. EVER. (Can you tell how excited I am?)

Anyway, I like this desk organizer because it’s affordable to create; I used old toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Here’s how I made it:

Duct Tape Desk Organizer Instructions

Duct Tape Desk Organizer

Materials:

4 toilet paper tubes, cut to different heights

Duct Tape

Cardstock

Mod Podge (please don’t call it “Modge Podge,” or I’ll cry)

Scissors

Paintbrush

1. Cover all of the toilet paper tubes in duct tape. Only cover the sides; don’t tape over the top and bottom.

2. Arrange the toilet paper tubes in a square, and wrap a piece of tape around them to hold them in place.

3. Use the Mod Podge and paintbrush to attach the bottom of your desk organizer to the cardstock, and let dry. Use a lot of Mod Podge! As you can see in the picture, I really piled it up around the edges. My organizer needed to dry overnight.

4. Use scissors to trim around the base of your organizer.

That’s it! The container is super sturdy and convenient, and a great place to keep your Duct Tape Rose Pen or Washi Tape Pencils. Just saying.

I hope everyone has a great week! Make sure to follow Duct Tape Doodles on Pinterest, Bloglovin’ and Google Plus! See you next time šŸ™‚

  1. That really is an adorable floral paisley tape; it should serve as lovely inspiration for upcoming nail art. Great tutorial, too! I’m sure a container like this one will make a fantastic addition to my desk in college come fall, both in terms of much-needed organization and, on a less practical note, it’s just so adorable to look at. Thanks for sharing! šŸ™‚
