How To: Turn a Phonebook into a Desktop Organizer

It seems like we get new phone books delivered to our door about as often as the weather changes, which in DC — as you know from the 20 degree to 70 degree jump this past week — is quite often. And with yellowpages.com, we open a phone book maybe once a year, so we liked Chica and Jo's clever way of putting at least one (half) of these paper-wasting, space-stealing hulks to good use... Supplies: 1. phone book 2. utility knife 3. cardboard tube (from a paper towel or toilet paper roll) 4. Mod Podge or acrylic gel medium (from a craft store) 5. paint brush 6. scissors 7. card stock (or the thick cover of another large phone book) 8. binder clips 9. glue gun 10. 1 new pencil The basic idea is to fold the pages into individual compartments big enough to hold basic desk supplies.
