Creative Ways to Repurpose Office Supplies

At the office, there is likely a surplus of supplies we no longer use on a regular basis. It may seem that these items have no purpose, but with a little creativity, they can make handy tools and accessories. Here are 5 creative ways to repurpose old office items. 

Ethernet Key Organizer

With most office spaces designed for wireless internet, what are we to do with the old ethernet slots in the wall? One great solution is to make a designed key chain from the cords so that we will never have to worry about losing our keys again!

Pencil Pen Holder

If we only use pens at work, we finally have a solution for those outdated #2 pencils in our drawer! With enough pencils and some gorilla wood glue, we can easily make an outside pencil wall to keep all of our necessary writing instruments safe and sound.

Floppy Disk Pen Holder

Speaking of pen holders, old floppy disks make an excellent pen holder as well!

BONUS: Floppy Disk Planters

We can throw a little 90’s feel into the office and have our own personal office plant with these wonderful floppy disk planters!

Bubble Wrap Mailer iPad Case

Here is the perfect solution if you have a new iPad or tablet and don’t want to shell out the money for a protective case. All we need is some unused bubble wrap mailer, and a little bit of ingenuity!

Rubber Band Gift Wrap

A great solution for that last minute office gift! Rubber bands can form a cool and interesting pattern to help get a gift noticed.

BONUS: Rubber Band Bracelet 

Give your old cuff bracelets some charm by wrapping them around in colorful rubber bands!
