How to Make Drawer Dividers
Here's a quick and easy way to get those messy drawers organized.
You will need
- A tape measure
- Gift wrapping paper or contact paper
- Double-sided tape
- A straight edte
- A craft knife
- Sturdy cardboard
Step 1 Measure the drawer Measure the inside height, width, and depth of the inside of the drawer.
Step 2 Measure and cut paper Measure and cut the wrapping paper or contact paper to fit the inside bottom of the drawer. Adhere it with the double-sided tape.
Step 3 Cut a strip of cardboard Cut a strip of cardboard to the inside length and depth of your drawer with the craft knife.
Step 4 Cut slots Measure in one-third of the length of the strip from each side and cut ¼-inch wide notches through the bottom half of the strip.
Step 5 Cut vertical dividers Measure and cut two more cardboard strips equal to the inside width and depth of the drawer. Cut ¼-inch notches at their midpoints, from the top down.
Wrap the three cardboard strips with more wrapping or contact paper, cutting out space at the notches.
Step 6 Fit dividers together Fit the notches in the shorter cardboard strips perpendicularly into the notches in the long strip and fit the divider into your drawer.
Step 7 Add dividers as needed Add or remove dividers as you need to, customizing the drawer for your needs.
A study has shown that gift-wrapped items influence the recipient to have a more favorable attitude toward owning the gift.
