We love seeing how our creative members repurpose their old Birchboxes. We’ve seen them used as drawer organizers, collage canvases, and nail polish storage containers. But this most recent creation might take the cake: Kathryn, the eight-year-old daughter of Birchbox subscriber Michelle, turned one of her mom’s old boxes into one of the world’s most iconic structures. Pretty impressive, no? We gave the duo a call to get the inside scoop.
Names: Michelle and Kathryn
How long have you been a Birchbox subscriber? Six months.
How did you find out about Birchbox? Someone posted it on Facebook and I was like, “What the heck is a Birchbox?” So I did some research and immediately fell in love with the idea and subscribed that day!
What is your favorite product so far? Alex and Isabelle hair ties. We both love them and have bought three sets!
Who opens the Birchboxs—you or Kathryn? Kathryn. She opens them all. So far she’s claimed the Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink, Harvey Prince Yogini, and Zoya nail polish in Izzy and Krissy.
How did you decide to use a Birchbox as part of the Eiffel Tower? Kathryn’s idea! She had a school assignment to do a presentation on a country and she had to build something to accompany the project. She choose France. We decided we’d try to make the Eiffel Tower out of things we had around the house. When it came time to create the base she said, “How about a Birchbox?”
