With all of the beauty box subscriptions I have, I have accumulated a ridiculous amount of empty boxes laying around. They are too good a quality to just throw away. You can use them in a whole different array of ways but why not recycle them into something useful and practical?!
Now if you are like me, due to these beauty boxes I have soooo much make-up and beauty products laying around on my desk, some of which I am not ready to use yet i.e. Foundations or mascaras that will dry up if opened and not used. Now, I have seen a few of these tutorials knocking around on pinterest but I thought I would do one of my own to show you just how easy it is to make.
What You Will Need:
4 GlossyBoxes (Complete with lids)
Sharp knife or scissors
Strong Craft Glue or superglue
Some Ribbon – why not recycle the ribbon in the glossyboxes?
And a little bit of time…..
Start of by taking one of your Glossyboxes and carefully cut off the four sides, this will leave you with a square that will be the base of your drawer set.
Next Take 2 of your Glossybox lids. carefully cut off one of the long edges off each one. These will make up the sides of your drawer sides.
Now, glue one of the short edges under the base as seen in the picture, Repeat with the other side
Now, take your 3rd lid. Cut off the shorter edges completely, but only cut off the pink edges on the longer side (I have used a limited edition box as I accidentally damaged one. Plus I like the colour combo). This will be the back of the drawer set.
Glue the 3rd lid to the side panels as shown. It is starting to come together now.
Take the 4th Lid, turn upside down and glue to the top of the unit, Slide in the remaining boxes and that’s it! Your Done!
You can embellish however you like. I have recycled the ribbons that come from the boxes to make pull handles, cover the inevitable gap at the top and add a delightful bow. I rather like it.
It is unbelievably spacious and ridiculously easy to make. This genuinely took me 30 minutes to make.
Have you any ideas on how to recycle these beauty boxes? Please Share….
