Up-cycling BIRCHBOX Boxes for Pretty Things

If you're like me and love receiving monthly subscription boxes full of treats {whether beauty, food, crafts, etc...} then you probably have a stockpile going of leftover boxes that are taking up space. I know that with Birchbox, they have really stepped up their game in the "pretty" box department. I mean, look at all the colorful, neat designs they've been using over the last few months. And with so many boxes collecting, I knew I needed to start putting these pretty boxes to good use! {I could never just throw them out!}

With that said, here are some crafty ideas on what you can use subscription boxes for... even the plain brown ones! 
  • Stock cardboard
  • Greeting cards
  • Wall hangings
  • Storage boxes
  • Book ends
  • Art display
  • Gift boxes
For stock cardboard for crafting and other card related art, just cut the box up into different shapes. 
For a unique take on a greeting card, just create and print out a message and glue on the box.
For wall hangings, I found some pretty neat little quotes on Pinterest, resized them and printed them out. I used washi tape to attach to the box for a bit more color.
For a cool bookend, I found literary quotes online and printed them out. Attach with glue or tape and add to your library for a pop of color.
For gift boxes, most subscription boxes have their name front and center on the lid, so I used cut pieces of cardboard, stock picture cards and washi tape to cover the name.

You can get as creative as you want while recycling these boxes {that you paid for} and are so unique. 

Enjoy decorating with your pretty creations! And thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love this idea!!! I have so many boxes to re-use. Most of them I put gifts in because they are just to darn cute to throw away!
