I am pleased to announce that I have another simple DIY project for everyone! And it is even easier than the last one. I should mention that I am on an endless quest to keep myself organized at home, especially in my studio/office, which is quite small since I share the space with my love. Anyway, our office is the only room in the house that we have neglected to paint and I wanted to come up with a way to make it cheerfully colorful AND organized. This is what I came up with:
Album Cover Wall Organizers that will take you less than 5 minutes from start to finish! That’s right: 5 MINUTES!
Materials: 1. Colorful album cover sleeves (I chose kid’s albums because they had neat illustrations on the front) 2. Scissors 3. Foam mounting squares
How To: Step One-Turn album cover sleeve on side so the opening is facing up towards the sky.
Step Two- Using your scissors, cut a half oval shape on the front flap starting at the top (where the opening is). Do not cut the backside (back flap). I just free-formed this part, but you can certainly trace it out if its easier.
*If you are having trouble thinking about cutting up your album covers, you can skip this step all together and can still use the cover as a “pocket”. It will just make getting to your papers a little more difficult, but can still work.
Step Three- Flip the album over to the backside. At each corner stick a foam mounting square and then peel off the paper backing.
Step Four- Secure to wall. Stick all your paper goodies in there and enjoy! I put notebook paper and manilla folders in the bottom one and my fun decorative papers in the top one.
What do you think?
