DIY Cosmetic Organizer and Jewelry Box Using BDJ Boxes

Aside from makeup, beauty boxes, travel, running and joining giveaways, I also love gift wrapping. I usually wrap gifts only during Christmas Season and I really love exerting extra effort for that. Buying materials is the hardest part because I want my gift wrap to be unique, so I have to find a unique paper and other materials. Once I already have the materials, it would be a lot easier for me to think of ways on how my gift wrap will look unique and more presentable. Today, I would love to share to you, my lovely readers, on how I made a DIY Cosmetic Organizer and Jewelry Box using my BDJ boxes. I am a BDJ Box subscriber since last year, and I kept all the boxes I’d got from the previous months. I’ve bee thinking of ways on how will I be able to re-use my boxes for quite a long time now. Good thing I was able to watch Nicole Romero’s, DIY: Recycle Your BDJ Box Into A Kikay Kit

The shoe box should look like this.

 

2. Wrap the shoe box using your chosen wrapping paper. For my DIY Cosmetic Organizer, I used a tile sticker I got from Ace Hardware.

3. Cut one side of the BDJ Box lid and the extra carton from the other two sides.

6. Layer the BDJ Box lid inside the shoe box. Make sure that the space interval is enough for the BDJ box.

7. Check if the BDJ boxes would fit inside the shoe box.

8. Make a tiny hole at the middle of the BDJ Box.

For the DIY Jewelry Box, I recreated Nicole and Beam’s steps on how to recycle your BDJ Box into a kikay kit. You may check out the video here. I just used my BDJ Elite Box instead.
