Recycled Desk Caddy


This idea is simply adorable… and green, too! You can recycle all your empty cardboard tubes from toilet paper rolls to stylishly corral all your desk supplies… pens, pencils, scissors, and more. It’s a great idea for dorms, home office, school desks, and even work.

Shop at Dollar Tree — Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • A Small Box (We used the bottom half of a gift box, but any kind will do)
  • Cardboard Tubes from Toilet Paper, Gift Wrap, Paper Towel Rolls, etc. (You’ll need enough to fill your box)
  • Vinyl Shelf Liner or Wrapping Paper and Clear Shelf Liner
  • Glue

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Fit the cardboard tubes to your box to make the arrangement you like and so that they all fit snugly together.
  2. If you are using wrapping paper and clear shelf paper, cut the paper and shelf liner to size. Cover the decorated side of the wrapping paper with the shelf liner and smooth out any air bubbles.
  3. Cover the box and the tubes with your paper/shelf liner. Fit the tubes back in the box and glue in place.
