Back to School Organizer

Here's my 1st project as a Glue Dottess.....a Back-to-School Organizer using toilet paper tubes. This was simple and a lot of fun to do...I knew I was eventually going to use those empty tubes I haven't thrown away...LOL!


Supplies:
  • 4 toilet paper roll tubes
  • thick cardboard such as bristol or illustration board - cut to 4" x 9"
  • acrylic paint - blue, red, yellow green
  • Glue Dots Mini and Glue Dots lines
  • dries-clear liquid adhesive
  • embellishments: ribbon, letters, white pen, sticker, pencil
Instructions:
  1. Paint each toilet paper roll in a different color.
  2. Use the Glue Dots Lines to attach the painted toilet paper rolls in a row.
  3. Tie ribbon around the 4 rolls, keep ribbon in place with Mini Glue Dots
  4. Attach the group of 4 rolls to bristol board and add embellishments.

It's not too late to do this, even if school has started a while back, you can use this to organize other things too! Hope you can try it out!

I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots design team.

Love it a lot! Will try to do it with my girls (trying to keep things in order - not managing so far)
Thanks for sharing!
