Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – What to do with beauty box packaging

I have subscribed to a lot of beauty boxes to date: Glossybox, Carmine, She Said Beauty and now SoukSouk. As I have said in my posts about SoukSouk one of the positives that I see is the reduction of packaging as there is no pretty box left over at the end.

I have more than enough of those!

Some of my empty beauty boxes (Glossybox & Carmine)

So I have decided to make use of them. Some I have used for packaging gifts. They have been a godsend for making awkward presents into shapes I can actually wrap! The others I am labelling and using for storage.

Labelled boxes

This way my belongings are more organised and the boxes are actually used instead of taking up room in landfill. I think they look quite pretty too!

I will be showing you in another post how I store these hopefully! Have you a collection of boxes from beauty boxes? What have you done with them? I have seen some really crafty ideas for making them into storage racks but that’s beyond my skill level I’m afraid!

    I have actually have my brushes in a Glossybox full of beans and I use the other one to pack my travel makeup in. Nice hard box fits in my bag perfectly.

    I have used some boxes for gifts and they were pretty sturdy for that. I also have seen a post a while ago about making drawers out of boxes. what you did seems cool too.
