I try to live a simple life and I normally purchase exactly what my family and I need. But not when it comes to art supplies for Ellie and craft supplies for myself. Not my fault, really! I’ll have you know these are super addictive and they practically beg me to take them home with me! So I always need additional space to store them and this is how I had to create this duct tape organizer.

Every time I’m convinced I have everything under control, a few weeks later it’s all a big mess, thanks to the never ending crafts supplies that seem to multiply buy the minute!

Duct Tape Organizer


  • Small cardboard cereal box (like Honey Nut Cheerios Box 12.25 oz.)
  • Light blue duct tape
  • Scissors
  • 5 empty toilet paper rolls


  • Cut the top or bottom of the cereal box so that it is 4 ¼ inches tall.

  • Start at the bottom edge and apply a row of duck tape all the way around the box.

  • Move the tape up and apply another row so that the edges of each row of duck tape is touching and the box does not show through the seams. Continue doing this up the box until you get to the top piece with an overhang length.

  • Make a cut vertically down each corner of the overlapping tape.

  • Fold each of these four edges of tape into the inside edge of the box.

  • Squeeze all 5 of the toilet paper rolls into the box.

  • Organize and add your art supplies.
