From the moment we came across Liz Marie’s blog, we knew she was a DIY genius. From organization inspiration to turning old objects into new treasures, Liz Marie has a knack for making anything and everything beautiful. This week, the super-crafty North Carolina resident is guest blogging for us and revealing some tricks of her trade.
I’m hooked on Birchbox: It’s like your birthday once a month when you get your new samples in the mail. But what do you do with your box once it’s empty? Instead of throwing it into the recycling bin, here are some ways you can reuse it.
Gift Boxes: What’s better than a handmade gift? How about handmade gift boxes! Using twine, doilies, and some felt, I made my old Birchboxes into the prettiest little gift boxes ever, and it makes the you gift you are giving mean so much more. Wondering what gifts you could put in these boxes? They are the perfect size for scarves, picture frames, and jewelry.
Drawer Organizers: Another use for those lovely boxes is as drawer organizers. There is an endless number of items that you can organize with these boxes, such as makeup, craft supplies, and your jewelry. Organizing your drawers can make your life easier and since you get a new box each month, you can make it a goal to organize something new with every Birchbox delivery. (And you thought the goodies inside the box were the best part.)
Recipe Holder: My last idea for how you can upcycle your Birchbox is to use it as a recipe holder. You can label the box and keep it in your kitchen. But don’t stop there: you can also take this idea and instead use a box to store photos, postcards, or other memories.
