Upscale Your GLOSSYBOX: Beauty Advent Calendar

Christmas is just around the corner and in a few weeks, the time will come to open the very first door on our beauty advent calendars.

If you haven’t had a chance to get your hands on one, we’ve got just the upscale for you this month! Yep, that’s right, we’ve turned a couple of our old boxes into a beauty advent calendar, filling each day with a mini beauty product or chocolate treat!

Here’s how we made it…

1. Choose some festive wrapping paper and cover the outside of two box bases.Upscale-glossybox-advent-calendar-step-2
2. Taking 24 small gift boxes (each measuring 7×5 cm), fill each one with a mini beauty product from a past Glossybox or a mini chocolate. You can get a pack of 6 gift boxes that are the perfect size from Hema for £2.

3. Cut up a few of your Glossybox ribbons and use each piece to tie up the top of each box, threading a small gift tag on (these come with the gift boxes from Hema).


4. Number each gift tag from 1-24.

5. Place each box in numerical order inside your Glossybox bases! You can then stand these on a shelf or attach a ribbon to the back of each and hang them on your wall.
