Don't use hot cup sleeves? Or do you save hot cup sleeves? You can use them for a tea organizer! Or, apply the same concept using sturdy paper or thin cardboard, cut long strips and fold into a square to make this tea organizer.

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • hot cup sleeves
  • cardboard box (as the organizer)
  • tape
  • scissors


  1. I don't use hot sleeves and used to toss them out. During this quarantine I've been re-thinking a lot and trying to reuse/conserve even more now. I opened the sleeves and folded them into square shapes.

  3. Essentially you'll need to find a box or container. The original box these sleeves came in actually works best so that is what I used. I just trimmed the box down with scissors to fit in my drawer.
  4. Now using tape, tape the top of the squares together.
  5. Optional - using stickers & spelling out TEA.
  6. Now you are ready to organize your tea drawer (simple and free way) while also making more room and everything is within sight!
