We remodeled my craft room last year and while I love it, I can create chaos in just a few minutes! I wanted to organize my fabric bits and pieces and fat quarters better, as they tend to mix and mire and flow into each other. So taking salvaged cereal boxes, I created some pretty nifty organizer dividers for my shelves.
See the starting problem below?
I took a flatened cereal box, cut off the bottom tabs and drew on my pattern. I wanted to reinforce the sides so I designed in glue down reinforcement tabs. I drew and scored all lines, then re-glued the top flaps. The re-close tab really helped with gluing the top.
Then I cut and folded all flaps. I did not bother with covering the boxes as you really cannot see them after I stack all the fabric.
A little glue...I used a white tacky glue, but double sided tape or glue gun would work too. Lots of clips and clothespins to hold things together as they dried.
Here is the first row. I made 12 of this size and 2 of a slightly larger jumbo Cheerio box size that did not fit. Can you believe that 4 of these fit on the shelf perfectly? What luck!
With some sorting and re stacking the result is beautiful...at least for a day or so. We will not mention the 4 large bins of additional fabric...some over 40 years old.
