Ideas for Reusing, Repurposing, and Upcycling All Those Empty Birchboxes, Glossyboxes, Allure Beauty Boxes, Target Beauty Boxes, and so on!

I’ve “instagrammed” my box projects a bunch of times now, but I think it’s time to do an actual post on the topic. If you receive multiple subscription boxes and/or multiple boxes of one kind (especially Birchboxes) then you likely have lots of cute little boxes sitting around waiting to be used for something. These can be used in countless ways. However they really take up a lot of room if you’re just storing them away for later. I think it was my 6 year old son’s request to do crafts last winter that got me to pull out all of my empty boxes. At that point I realized I had to do something with these things and so I started to experiment. I’m going give you some ideas of what you can do at home with your boxes, without a lot of fancy tools or craft expertise.

Diptyque Thé (Tea) Candle (Spicy Category Follow Up) and Diptyque Candle Tray DIY with Epoxy Resin

Epoxy and Me: DIY Makeup-Top Table Made from a Glass Nightstand and Clear Buildable Epoxy Resin

For the past week or so I’ve been writing less than usual because I’ve been busy crafting a makeup table. Or maybe it should be called a makeup-top table.

Being an “idea” person, I randomly dreamed up a makeup-top table. I got an image of it in my mind.  Also being kind of obsessive, I had to implement a plan to create it or else I would never stop thinking about it. Only after starting it did I realize I needed a step by step plan of how to make the idea into reality.

However, I’ve managed to make some cool things over the years with clear epoxy resin, after starting with some simple projects.

I cut scrap-booking paper to fit the shape of the table-top. I poured the epoxy over it.
