Are you in organizing mode? We definitely are. I love keeping things tidy & clean. Clutter is not my friend. Not only does it physically fill up space but it clutters my mind as well. So I decided to take something that I have on hand all the time & make these little Desk Organizer’s for my daughter. They work perfectly for all her crafting supplies & make her tiny desk look clean. This project comes together quickly – which is great for you busy moms out there. Plus, repurposing things is something I absolutely love to do- so this project just makes me smile.
You see – since I really go through the coffee creamer I don’t like throwing out the bottles. Yes I can stick them in my recycle bin. But if I can make a good use for it- then it saves me from having to go buy something that would work just the same. So I save them & use them for things like making these desk organizers for my daughter’s room.
I picked up several of these International Delight Fat Free & Sugar Free creamers. I love it because given the new year I am trying to find new ways to eat a little healthier & do things that are better for me. But I never want to feel deprived. That’s a sure way to fail. So things like swapping out my regular International Delight Creamer with this Fat Free & Sugar Free versions is just what I am looking for. This Chocolate Almond Biscotti flavor was what was available in my store. However there are also flavors like Toasted Hazelnut, French Vanilla, Caramel Creme & Caramel Marshmallow too. I CAN’T WAIT for those to finally hit my store- they sound amazing. Knowing that they are all Fat Free & Sugar Free is really great.
So I started with cutting off the top of the bottle & the carton.
Then I used hot glue to attach the burlap to the bottle. I finished it off with a little sisal wrapped around. EASY!
As you can see I have some square ones. Those are from my Iced Coffee Cartons.
For the carton- I coated the outside with Mod Podge & then pressed the fabric firmly all around.
Then I folded in about 3/4 inch at the top to finish off the edge.
Finally I gave it another coat of Mod Podge over the top of the fabric to seal it all.
– Again – very simple & takes very little time.
These cartons work great for the larger things like the paint brushes.
She absolutely LOVES them. She has been begging me to use this fabric on something for her room.
Simple & useful. Can’t beat that.
The best part is that I’m always picking up new creamer – so I will have plenty more to make.

Love it! I’ve been using my snow days to organize!
I love this! My boys desks are a mess. This would be great for them. I’d have to find some manly fabric or paper to use, of course! There you go! An idea for your next project……boy desk organizers! 🙂

Such a cute idea and a wonderful way of recycling throw away items, plus when you get tired of the pattern you can throw it away or recycle it again..lol
