DIY Mail Organizer

I have seen this done before, and I desperately need something to organize all the papers on our counter, so I ventured to make my own version.

What you will need: 
-one cereal box (bigger the better--like Chex, but I didn't have that)
-one smaller box (I used a fruit snack box)
-brown crafting paper (dollar store :)
-embellishments (I used ribbon, twine, and scrapbook paper)

 1. To start, cut the flaps off of the top of your boxes.

2. Cover with brown crafting paper and tape or glue (I used double stick tape).

3. Tape or glue boxes together and add embellishments. I cut a few things out with my Silhouette and added ribbon around the sides. 
You can use magnets to put the organizer on your fridge, or stick it on your wall.
