Book Organizer from Recycled Plastic Bottles

[ You are not allowed to view this attachment ]

  • A wooden plank of about 1.8 cm thick (variable width and depth, depending on the space in which it will be placed. However, it will be preferable that the plank measures a few millimeters less than the niche where it will be positioned, to leave enough space for the thickness of the felt pads)
  • Varnish to paint the axis (optional)
  • Empty detergent bottles in sufficient number to occupy the available surface
  • Indelible marker
  • Scissors
  • Screws 1.5 cm long (two screws for each bottle)
  • Screwdriver
  • Punching tool (type belt punch or Crop-A-Dile)
  • Metal eyelets
  • Eyelet pliers
  • Felt pads

1) With a marker, draw the outline of the book holder on the bottle (clean and dry), and cut out .

2) Paint the plank with the color you like best ( optional ).

3) Place the bottles on the axis , making them adhere well to each other.

4) Screw the bottles with two screws for each, at the two ends of the base.
To be sure to keep the same margin on both sides of the axis (in case the bottles do not occupy the entire width of the base), it is preferable to start screwing the central bottles.

5) Once all the bottles have been fixed, drill the holes as per photo below: one hole at the top and one at half height .

Attention : the two walls at the right and left ends (those that remain single) should not be pierced (as shown in the photo above).

To puncture adjacent bottles in the same place, just drill the hole simultaneously, holding the two plastic parts together with your fingers.

6)   Using the special tool, apply the metal eyelets so as to join the walls of the adjacent bottles together.

7) Apply the felt pads on the sides and under the axis.

Done! The bookcase is ready , and the books are finally in order ...

Desk Tray from Cardboard Boxes

[ You are not allowed to view this attachment ]

This simple creation made from up-cycled cardboard is designed so you can create, stack and join as many trays on top of each other as you like.

To make one tray, all you need is two Makedo Re-clips, some cardboard (keep the boxes that copy paper comes in), the template we’ve provided with these instructions, a ruler and cutting device.

We have provided two templates. One is a laser cut template and the other is a printable A4 sheet pattern.

Step 1:
Get some cardboard. We’ve used cardboard from an open packaging box.

Step 2:
To begin the first tray, draw out the template dimensions supplied with these instructions. Cut out the cardboard template.

Step 3:
Using the point end of the Makedo Safe-saw, lightly score the flaps of the cardboard where there are dotted lines shown on the PDF template.

Step 4:
Fold along the scored lines and slowly your tray should take form.

Step 5:
To position the tray into place, use the Makedo Safe-saw and punch the sides of the tray where cardboard overlaps.

Step 6:
Connect the sides together using a Makedo Re-pin and Re-clip. Your first tray is complete. You can use this first tray to trace more cardboard templates. Stack the trays above one another to hold more documents.

Step 7:
To stack multiple trays simply sit the top tray over the lower tray, overlapping the sides. Connect the overlapping sides together using Makedo Re-pin and Re-clip.

Step 8:
You are now ready to organise all your important documents.  Add a splash of colour to your desk by using different coloured cardboards and patterns.
