DIY Desk Tidy

DIY Desk Tidy

Hello my lovelies how are you all today? I do hope you’re well and thank you so much for stopping by for this super handy DIY desk tidy I am going to show you how to make. Soooooo simple and easy but really cute and most of all helps you keep organised. Especially if like me you don’t have room for a desk. I genuinely have all my blog stuff stacked on a dining chair (out the way and not visible). However this can be akward if I’m trying to find something and have to take every thing out just find one thing!!


You Will Need
Cereal box,
Pretty Paper,
Sticky Tape,
Ribbons or Extra decoration optional,



  1. Cut the cereal box diagnoal in half. Making sure to trim any of the flaps from aroundΒ the top.diy_desktidy3
  2. Now to wrap it paper! You can either try to wrap it in one piece! I found this difficult and I had to do the tape loop thing to stick it down in places. Also securing it here and there as I went. Β I also found it difficult to keep it lined up nicely! However this finished result was not bad.
  3. Or you can cut the sides to fit and then stick them on individually which was easier but I don’t feel the finished product would look as nice and smooth as the just one wrap.
  4. Trim any long ends you may have and fold the paper towards the inside giving it a nice clean edge.
    If sticking indiviual pieces don’t forget to leave a bit to account for this.
  5. Tape these edges INSIDE your box. I used present wrapping style to keep it neat.
  6. Finally add any decoration if you want to. I used some old parcel tape to make a double bow for one and the other I used a gorgeous red/purpley ribbon.

That is it my loves! Now you have some super cute desk tidies that you can totally personalise to suit you! If you have left over wallpaper you could even room match them for the perfect storage solutions!

I also used some left over paper and an old gravy pot to make a matching pen holder to!
Well my loves I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s blog and if you do gove these a go please do tag me in them using myΒ Social MediaΒ pages as I would love to see them!

Lots of Love,
