Paper Organizer Ideas

Paper Organizer
Though I have been blogging for more than a year and am a paper crafter  till recently I didnt own many papers or card stock . Of late my paper and card stock has slowly started increasing as I discovered places to buy them from!
I was also gifted some awesome paper by Asha,Priya,Jaya and Angelin [ all blogger pals!] I treasure these more than anything and had to make a lovely storage shelf for them!

This is what I recycled to make my Paper Organizer shelf [ the package of my daughters playhouse]
Paper Organizer Tutorial
I cut it up and made it into equal sized boxes

Stacked and stuck the boxes together and made a door from another cardboard box

Wrapped a gift wrap  paper [ recycled- it was the wrapping of my birthday gift!] and embellished it
Paper Organizer
On the door of the paper organizer shelf I added a 3 D decoupage honeybee [ I made 3 of these to use in this project].I made the pink knob for the shelf door from a broken hair accessory!

The top of the shelf has the 3 D decoupage bee which I made slightly differently [ difficult to see here !].

Here is the closeup of the 3 D decoupage Honey bee.

Also added a punch craft dove made using a scallop punch and a pear punch [ Click here for punch craft dove tutorial]

The pink oval frame is a foam frame

Since my first paper storage idea for the smaller papers was fun to make, I ventured to make a paper organizer for my A4 card stock too. Made it in pink and blue to match my earlier paper shelf.

For the A 4 sized paper Organizer, I recycled this old box and made it into a double partitioned Paper organizer.
Paper Organizer Tutorial
Cut the sides in a slanting fashion. This is inspired from my dear blogger friend Ujjwal who does some lovely recycling too. Thank You Ujjwal for this wonderful and useful idea.
Paper Organizer Tutorial
I added a partition  to hold paper scraps. The partition was glued on using a glue gun.
Paper Organizer Tutorial
I used blue and pink chart paper to line the cardboard paper organizer.Here is the side view showing the slanting cuts which helps to see as well as take out your papers easily
Paper Organizer
Embellished the A4 paper organizer with 3 D decoupage , butterflies, ribbons and pearls.
Paper Organizer
I layered 2 punched butterflies on each other to make this cute butterfly.

The pink roses are handmade punch craft roses whose tutorial I have been promising for quite some time! Sorry- coming soon!

The white fence is -- can you guess?? Well its the packaging of apples and pears !

3 D Decoupage
Here is my collection of A 4 size corrugated paper in my new Paper organizer.Daughter helped me to arrange the papers by color!

    and get time to do such activities. I wish one day I will meet you. I really love you... :)

  62. Hi Sonia,

    Sorry am answering your question here... my fingers are a bit sore from many years of texting on the phone.
    You asked me how I got the shimmer... first of all I have used a Hero Arts fern stamp and have gone over it with a Sakura gold pen.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Oh my gosh! I love the pink and blue color combination. These are so much prettier than the plastic things I have. I never thought I'd need paper storage, but I have discovered I have a paper addiction. These must have taken you a long time. You are saving the earth one organizer and flower at a time. I love the flowers and bling and that adorable bee. These are just beautiful!

  78. Hi Dr. Sonia,

    I like the design of your paper project. The first thing I thought of is that you will be a "busy bee" with all of your paper crafting. I think it is a very creative project indeed. When you said you didn't have a lot of paper I was thinking once you get the "bug" that box will fill up in no time. ; D Great job, and I love all the differet colors you have of the corrugated paper!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Looks nice. Great job at making something so attractive by recycling boxes. Especially like the HoneyBee & other embellishments.
