Mail Organizer with card board and fabric



I have been searching to buy a simple mail organizer in white color so that it can match with the other things in our living room. I couldnt find one which i am looking for. And i thought why not i make one with some card board and fabric. My husband got a white XXL T-shirt from his office with his office logo in the front. I used it in the process. Here is how to make it.




Take a card board cut it in a rectangle shape. Cut it in a way that one small side of the rectangle is pointed in shape. See the picture above. Cut the fabric and sew it to the entire card board by pulling it tight. Then to make 3 folders, take 3 fabric pieces of same length. Here i used the fabric from the lower part of the T-shirt. So that we can already have some finished look. First sew the top folder on the 3 sides, leaving open on the top. Sew the second folder from 1 inch on the bottom of the first folder. Sew the third folder from 1 inch on the bottom of the second folder. Take 4 inches of fabrric with 1 inch width to make a hanging loop. Sew it to the pointed edge of the finished organizer. I painted some nail polish here and there to add a bit of color to it. Hang it on a wall to a push pin. I hanged a pista shell flower on it. It gave a more attractive look to the mail organizer.
