Here are two ways. (And BTW, it helps when you post here to include an
example that others can copy/paste into Mathematica instead of having
make up an example for you.) Anyway, let's make a couple of lists:

list1 = RandomInteger[10, 5]

list2 = RandomInteger[{15, 20}, 5]

One method: Use Riffle to make a new list alternating elements from
list1 and list2, then Partition into pairs, like so.

Partition[Riffle[list1, list2], 2]

Second method: Put list1 and list2 into matrix with list1 as the first
row and list2 as the second row, then Transpose the matrix.

Transpose[{list1, list2}]
