How to Recycle your Empty Chocolate Box into a Chic Clutch
After enjoying those boxes of chocolates that you’ve got last Valentine’s and White Day, what did you do to the empty boxes?

I think most of you have discarded it weeks ago.

Or some of you have just kept it for no reason, just waiting for a chance to pop in your head.

And if you still keep them, lucky you!


To celebrate this year's Earth Day, here's another DIY tutorial just for you!

After reading my DIY post, you’ll never throw your empty chocolate boxes again!

I’ve got this empty transparent plastic container of chocolates from a friend (I’ve noticed that this empty box was just lying around unattended so I asked her if I could keep it, gladly she said yes!).


And raising her right brow with a bubble thought saying “What the hell is she doing with that trash?!”

LOL Seriously, am used to those bubble thoughts and reactions.

Anyway here are the materials I’ve used:

1). Empty plastic chocolate box
2). Old magazines
3). Small hinges (I’ve got it from a hardware store)
4). Adhesive and mod podge
5). Pair of scissors
6). Assorted blings

Using the old back label of the box, use it to trace on the designed magazine sheet. If you find don’t have magazine sheet, you can use any colored gift wrapping papers. There is no limits!

Cut two of those sheet and then apply an adhesive or mod podge to the surface of the traced sheet.

Then paste it on both inner side of the transparent box. I’ve chose these photos from the old Italian fashion brochures because I find it that the designs suits my personality and taste – classic and feminine.

Then using a strong adhesive that you can bought from a hardware strong, attached the hinges on the box. Let it try for 30-minutes. Be careful on using strong adhesive because it truly sticks AF.
So it will look like this!

The design looks sleek and classy and simple. Hhmmm I find it very ordinary.

So I gathered all my available blings and started to attach it to my box clutch.

There are many things that you can do with empty boxes. You can make it as your makeup organizer, or your lipstick storage, etc. You don’t need to buy new storage or clutch bag. And also you will practice the sustainable lifestyle!



Always remember that the only limits is your imagination 
