I have too many of these boxes from makeup packaging.
I really like the packaging on makeup/cosmetic products; they are usually very nicely made. I have a lot of them and I was planning to throw them out. But then I decided I could try to reuse them for other purposes.
When I travel my makeup brushes are all thrown into the same bag with other products and I always feel like they will break eventually. I think using these cosmetic boxes to hold the brushes I need will ensure that it’ll stay clean and won’t break.
I wanted the box to be sturdier so I wrapped it in card stock paper. But I left the top flaps as is so it’s not too thick and I could still close it.
You could technically leave it with just the cardstock paper on top but I really wanted it to be more ascetically pleasing. So, I wrapped it like a gift but using fabric.
On the top where it could be opened, I cut and taped it down. Then, it’s ready to be used. It fits my brushes nicely and I think it’ll make a pretty good box for pencils as well or even as a nice gift box.
What do you do with the cosmetics packaging?
