Here at Influenster, we've been working hard at becoming more environmentally friendly. From turning off lights to reducing waste there are so many ways to help this planet stay healthy. If you're a lucky Influenster who's received a VoxBox, you probably faced the dilemma of what to do with it after you reviewed the totally awesome products inside.

We've come up with these helpful suggestions for what to do with your old VoxBox, take a look: 

1. For The Beauty Lover: Makeup Organizer

Makeup Organizer: Voxbox Upcycling

VoxBoxes make amazing makeup organizers whether you have a small or big box it's perfectly suited to streamlining your makeup counter. Small boxes are great for holding one type of makeup and big boxes can hold all your makeup with dividers (made from small pieces of cardboard or construction paper) to keep them separate! 


2. For The Musically Inclined: Toy Guitar

Your little one (or you!) will love to shred on this DIY Toy Guitar. To make your very own guitar cut a circle out of the top of a VoxBox and string rubber bands over your sound hole. Then attach an empty paper towel roll to the top for a fretboard you can rock out on! 


3. For The Animal Lover: Pet Bed

Even if you haven't fitted it out for your pet, your curious four-legged-friend has probably explored the inside of a box. Put some padding (a towel works well!) in the bottom of your old VoxBox and give your pet an inexpensive pet bed they'll love! 


4. For The Adventurous One: Picnic Basket
