Recycling Ikea Cardboard

Posted on August 7, 2015 at 3:35 PM

I recently got delivery of two new Hyliss shelving units from Ikea - about $15.00 each CDN - which I love because they are light enough for me to move around should I decide to redecorate. Anyway after the usual kerfunkle putting the shelving together - never an easy task - I was left with some cardboard that had held the shelving bits in place during transport. 

DIY Desktop Organizer

I made this desktop paper organizer from the Ikea cardboard shown above on the left. I glued two of these together and then covered both with leftover gift wrap. I could have used almost anything including wallpaper leftovers (don't have any), old maps, even brown paper bags or paint. Anyway, it's an idea that's easy-peasy. Note that I glued a bit of cardboard at the bottom to keep it from falling over.
