12 Crafts to Make Using Office Supplies

By craftyamy |


I know that many of you work in an office, and up until just recently, I did too. For those of you who have done desk work, have you ever played with your office supplies? I have spent an embarrassing number of hours folding sticky notes, bending paper clips and fussing with rubber bands. When I worked at Target at age 17, I made a huge banner out of receipt tape and one of the weekly fliers. Forever crafty, I guess! Memories of crafting with office supplies caused me to see what other people are doing with them – and it turns out there are some fun ideas. A lot of them combine craft materials with office supplies, but some use just the supplies themselves. I absolutely love this office supply banner collection spotted at Shoplet. Are you intrigued?
