Personalised File Organiser DIY

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have been looking for a file organiser that I could personalise according to size, style, and enough slot to put my important papers in but I had difficulty looking for one so my DIY ideas to the rescue! πŸ™‚

This is so cheap to make! And heres what you’re going to need:

  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Glue Stick (It has to be glue sick, so the cardboard is even out when gluing the cardboard paper)
  • Electrical tape (colour of your choice)
  • Masking tape
  • Recycled Cardboard box (cut into size 13″x9″)
  • Cardboard Paper (cut into size 13″x9″) – any colour of your choice πŸ™‚

I have cut the recycled cardboard box and cardboard paper as shown below;

Important: In gluing the cardboard paper to the recycled cardboard box, only use glue stick so the paper will even out on the recycled cardboard box, shown below;

I have used an electrical tape to secure the edges of the cardboard and add some design to it πŸ˜‰

You will now make the accordion for both sides, I have cut a cardboard paper 30cm x 22.5cm and had it divided and lined by 1.5cm using a scissors to score the paper.

Now, to connect the accordion on both sides, I use a masking tape on each side to secure the accordion;
