I don’t know if anyone else is like me, but I usually have office mail (incoming and outgoing), notes, memos, etc scattered across my desk on a daily basis. Below I have a little DIY tutorial for a book-office mail sorter. This sorter will be a perfect addition to your desk or really anywhere in your office. What I love about this sorter is that unlike other mail sorters, this one allows for smaller notes and cards. Little things won’t get lost in the pile. You just stick them in and they stay right where you put them. It’s really quite fantastic.
1: Gather needed items for the project. 1 book (preferably old) and 1 glue stick
2: Start from the middle of the book and begin to fold pages in to the center and glue them. Glue one on top of each other. Each section containing roughly 5-8 pages. Make sure to glue each page and press along the glued edge to secure it.
3: Once you have the sections glued like in the picture above you can either leave as is, or continue to use the entire book. It’s up to your personal preference.
4: You can lay the book/sorter open on top of your desk and place letters, memos, notes, etc., or see below.
5: You can stand the book/sorter upright on your desk and display your notes and letters that way.
