A Stationery Holder Made From Bottle Caps

This is probably one of the easiest ones to make as you just need to build it! I suppose you could glue the bricks together, but I wouldn’t bother as Lego is strong enough to hold many pencils together.

A Stationery Holder Made From Circuit Boards

6 – Circuit Boards

Do you have a load of old electronic boards laying around from computers that are no longer usable? If you do you could make one of these stationary holders and it doesn’t look too hard to make. The only problem you will have is that you need to find 4 circuit boards that are mostly the same shape and size.

A Stationery Holder Made From Floppy Disks

5 – Floppy Disks

All you really need is 5 floppy disks (one for the bottom and 4 sides) and a few small cable ties to hold them all together. OK, so its probably not that easy, but it looks great and perfect for any office desk.

This is another one of those desk tidies that would look good in an office be it at home or at work. While you will need something to stick the keys to, it shouldn’t be too hard to replicate this.
