This desk organizer is made from an empty aluminum foil box, cardboard paper towel roll tubes, and leftover wrapping paper. I love making things out of supposed trash! ;)

  3. Cover the sharp cutting edge with Scotch tape.
  4. Start drawing a pattern of your aluminum foil box onto the back of your wrapping paper. You will be cutting it out to cover your box.
  5. Cover all sides of your box with the wrapping paper and glue to secure.
  6. Cut the paper towel tubes into 4 pieces. They can be same sizes or varying, up to you.

  8. Cut your wrapping paper a little larger than the length of the cut tubes and neatly glue them on top, tucking the extra down into the tube.
