Step 1: Gather Your Materials

For this project, you’ll need the following items

Utensils Holder and Sticker paper for labels

Step 2: Prepare the Utensil Holders

Start by laying out the utensil holders on your work surface. These will serve as the main compartments for organizing your sandpaper. You can choose the size and quantity of utensil holders based on your specific needs and the amount of sandpaper you have.

Step 3: Labeling (Optional)

If you want to easily identify the grit of each sandpaper, now is the time to apply labels to the utensil holders. Simply use the labels you’ve prepared and stick them onto the holders, indicating the grit of each section.

Step 4: Glue the Utensil Holders Together

Next, apply a small amount of superglue to the edges of the utensil holders and carefully stack them on top of each other. Make sure they are aligned properly to create a stable tower-like structure. Allow the glue to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 5: Testing and Adjustments

Once the glue has dried, it’s time to test the stability of your sandpaper organizer. Place it on a flat surface and ensure that it stands upright without wobbling. If necessary, make any adjustments or apply additional glue to reinforce the joints.

Step 6: Loading the Sandpaper

Now comes the fun part – loading your newly assembled sandpaper organizer with sandpaper. If you have sandpaper discs in various grits, you can neatly stack them in the labeled compartments according to their grit sizes. Alternatively, you can fold or roll standard sandpaper sheets and place them in the compartments based on your preference.

Step 7: Final Touches

With your sandpaper neatly organized and easily accessible, take a moment to admire your handiwork. You’ve successfully transformed basic utensil holders into a functional sandpaper organizer that will help streamline your woodworking or DIY projects.


And there you have it – a simple yet effective DIY sandpaper organizer that you can easily create using items from the dollar store. By taking the time to organize your sandpaper, you’ll save yourself countless hours searching for the right grit and make your woodworking projects much more efficient.
