Two-Toned Desk Organizer

Two-Toned Desk Organizer craft

Make a practical gift for someone you love or for yourself by reusing film canisters or other containers! Play with fun designs and colors to customize these handy desk accessories.

  • 1.

    Paper clips, crayons, push pins—every desk has lots of little stuff to keep organized. These little containers are perfect to keep any desk neat!

  • 2.

    To make two-toned holders like those shown in the picture, roll two coils of Crayola Model Magic® modeling compound. Lay the coils next to each other so that they stick together. Roll these double-coils around a film canister or other recycled container. Repeat with the other groups of colors with two or more canisters—or pick containers of different sizes for even more versatility.

  • 3.

    Roll three different-sized Model Magic balls. Set a film canister on top of a ball and flatten them so they are each a different height. Snuggle them together so they stick to each other.

  • 4.

    Choose a color or two that goes with all the colors you used. Roll a very thick coil of this and wrap around the bottom of the project to cover the balls under the canisters.
