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
4 toilet paper tubes, cut to different heights
Mod Podge (please don’t call it “Modge Podge,” or I’ll cry)
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.
