DIY organization for the little things floating in your desk….

Is anyone else obsessed with the little containers that everyone is using for dice holders?  I AM!  I was trying to think of what to use them for, and as I was thinking this, I looked at my desk and saw paper clips ALL OVER!  I decided to make little storage containers out of them!

I found a rectangle magnet board at Michael’s, put a layer of scrapbook paper and ribbon on it with Mod Podge!  It only needs a couple of hours to dry before it is ready to go!


Then I went through my desk and found goodies that would fit in the little containers, which are also from Michael’s.  The best part is, the little tins are magnetic, so they stick on the board!  They can also stick on the whiteboard in my classroom, with is amazing because I definitely leave them all over the room!
