How To: Phone Book Desk Organizer.

by on Feb 27, 2009

You’d think they’d figure it out by now…but no, updated phone books still land on your porch, often in pairs, every few months.

So, instead of immediately tossing them in the recycle bin, since you’re obviously not an idiot and have discovered online tools that are far superior, make something useful….

Chica and Jo offer this use: a desk organizer for office supplies.


  • 1 phone book (in good shape)
  • sharp utility knife
  • aluminum T-square
  • 1 cardboard tube
  • Mod Podge
  • 1″ paint brush
  • scissors
  • 12″x12″ piece of black card stock
  • 5 binder clips
  • hot glue gun
  • 1 new pencil
