Recycled Birchbox

Every Birchbox comes with a sheet of tissue paper.

ModPodged tissue paper

Finished box to put birthday gift

Last month was Green Month. BirchBox was asking to post photos of upcycled Birchboxes. I am a little to late but thought I would post this anyway. My moms birthday is right around the corner. Sometimes finding just the right bag and tissue paper can be a little expensive. There's usually never any coupons for that kind of stuff. I knew I had some zebra print duct tape somewhere hidden in my car. I think it was left over from Vacation Bible School projects. I opened up the trunk and found it under a blanket. I grabbed my empty Birchbox and began to cover the sides and top with the tape. I did not like the way the inside looked, so I decided to modpodge the insides with the tissue paper that every Birchbox comes with. I also modpodged the outsides of the box to give the box a gloss finish and to prevent the tape from coming undone. After letting the mod podge dry all night, I filled the box with my moms gifts and used a sheer purple ribbon to finish off the look.
I really like this because she can reuse this box to put whatever she wants in it. This duct tape can be found at Hobby Lobby, Michael's or Walmart. I hope you enjoy and recycle your box too.


  1. I love this idea. Especially with xmas around the corner it's a great way to recycle old boxes or make boxes from stores more fun!
