Drawer Dividers Tutorial

Utensil Drawer Divider Tutorial | Red Circle Crafts

I think all of the drawers in my kitchen are a custom size. I have never seen an in-drawer utensil holder that fits in my drawers. Some of the adjustable ones would work, but I decided it would be better to just make my own. This is the second set of boxes I've made. I remade them slightly differently when I reorganized recently.

These would also work for great for pencils and pens or sized to fit your own odds and ends. Hooray for organization!

What you'll need:

Scissors
Bone scorer (optional)
Pencil
Paper (I used matboard*, but you could use card stock)
Stapler
Printable Template (Prints on legal-size paper)

Print out the template. Use this template to cut out your drawer dividers from your card stock or matboard. Cut along the solid lines and score along the dotted lines. I usually just use a pair of somewhat dulled scissors to score because I don't have a tool specifically for scoring.

The matboard I used is really sturdy, but if you don't have matboard, card stock works fine. It just won't last as long.

Staple the flaps inside against the short side of the box.

These boxes measure 7.5" x 2.5" x 1.75" when finished.

It should be pretty easy to figure out how to make these to fit your own dimensions. Do keep in mind that if you use thicker paper, you'll need to take that into account when measuring the space it will fit in. My paper is 1/16" thick so the inside base of the box is 1/8" less in both the width and length than the outside dimensions.
