Dresser Drawer Dividers

There are many different ways that you can divide your clothing in your dresser. Dresser drawer dividers are a great tool to use to keep drawers organized. It keeps your clothing in line and not tumbling over in your drawer. We have all seen it, the clothes scattered and sliding around or floppy over to the next pile of clothes. I found a way to make one without it costing you the amount that you see in stores. My version is also great because my main item for this project is something I already have in my home and your too.

Here is how I made my dresser dividers:

It is very simple that you’re going to think ‘why didn’t I think about this?’. You are first going to need something cardboard, (I’m using parts of a box).


Measure the length and height of your dresser drawer and cut to your correct measurements.


Use Self Adhesive paper of any design you like in the store. I bought mine from Dollarama for $2.00 and using what is left of the roll for this project. Use your cut out as a divider to measure the amount of paper you will need. You can do this by folding the paper over the cut-out divider.


Peel the backing.


Place one side of the divider on the sticky side.  Leave space around the edges.



Fold in the smaller side.



Now cut the bottom towards the divider so that it makes a flap.
Fold over the flap and smooth the air bubbles. Repeat for the top part of the divider.


Now you are ready to fold over the last piece. Smooth over any air bubbles.


Cut any extra pieces off.


And there you have it.


Now all you have to do is place it in your drawer.

It’s awesome that you are able to reuse something that you didn’t even expect to use it for.  Enjoy your new organized dresser dividers!
