We all know how useful an empty cardboard box can be. Whether we reuse an old show box as a memory box or an old delivery box to store unwanted clothes; cardboard boxes are super versatile and can come in handy in various different ways.

Although there are many different types of boxes such as corrugated, solid or die-cut carton boxes, in most cases you’ll be able to repurpose those boxes and give them a new lease of life.

To help give you some ideas, we’ve put together some of the popular and most common things you can reuse a cardboard box for.

Children’s Toy

You’ll never believe how much joy an empty cardboard box can give a child! With a little creativity, you can transform an empty box into many different things that can give a child hours of fun and play.

Memory box

This is the most common usage for an empty shoe size box. A memory box or keepsake box is usually made from wood but a cardboard box is a great alternative and you can decorate the box to match the contents. It’s great for storing moments from a special time, person or event.

Storage box

Finding it difficult to find a storage box that matches your room decor? Well, now you don’t need to look around. Upcycling, old cardboard boxes with your choice of fabric or colour can be a great way to add a matching storage box in any room.

Gift Box

A great way to rescue your old cardboard box is to decorate them with wrapping paper and use it as a gift box. It’s a great way to recycle the box, plus you don’t need to worry about shopping for a box to fit the gifts.

Desk Tidy

The right shape and size of the box can make the perfect desk tidy to store pens and other stationery items. As it’s made of cardboard, you can easily customise the box to your style. It’s also a great activity to do with the kids!
