7 ways to reuse a tissue box

1. Store your plastic carrier bags in them. Even though we have what feels like 1001 eco bags, plastic bags still seem to work their ways into our lives. We keep a tissue box filled with carrier bags in the boot of our car because it keeps them nicely compact in a small space and the hole makes it easy to pull out a couple when on the go.

2. Chop up that decorative card into various shapes to make gift tags. Team with some complementary ribbon and you’re all set.

3. Use as scrap paper rather than just binning it. We use them to jot down a quick shopping list or directions. It’s always best to try and get at least one further use out of everything you use.

4. Grab those craft scissors again and cut into thick rectangle strips for a simple and easy bookmark. If you’re feeling very crafty you can jazz it up a little with ribbon, lace, paints or sequins.

5. Cut off the lid portion and use (with others) as a way to organise your desk or make up drawer.

6. Remove the top part of the box, put some soil inside, pop some seeds in and allow to germinate in this handy little box. The box is biodegradable so you’re able to plant this box once the seedlings are well developed and sturdy.

7. Keep them in the front of your car (an in the back too if you have children) to be used as an easily removable bin for all of those sweep wrappers and fruit peel.
