A Subscription Craft Box from Crafty Creatives? What’s this all about then? I’ll start from the beginning….
Whilst on Twitter (my biggest addiction), I came across the fab newly formed Crafty Creatives, run by sisters, Claire and Isobel. They offer something no one else in the UK does – a craft box sent to your door every month, full of surprise craft supply items. Only a tenner and a bit for P&P!
I’d seen a few beauty box subscriptions out there, but I’d been waiting for a craft version to become available, as it combines my love of craft supplies and receiving post. Perfect! Judging by the quality of the first box I received (#CCBox1), Claire and Isobel have done a fantastic job of sourcing high quality suppliers and developing a strong brand.
So what was in it?! I’m sure there will be a few of these posts out there, but I wanted to share the box straight away. DO NOT READ AHEAD IF YOU DON’T WANT A SPOILER!! In future, I plan to blog about what I have made from the supplies.
The box has a floral theme throughout and includes buttons, beads, gift tag, floral pegs, tissue paper, a glass pendant, embroidery thread, fabric-tac (full size bottle), cotton ribbon, a fat quarter of William Morris fabric and 2 smiley flower beads. Sadly I wasn’t the lucky recipient of the surprise ladybird, but here’s hoping for next time!
Also included was a kit to make an item, this time it is a fabric brooch.
My favourite item was the floral pegs – sweet!
It feels as though your box is lovingly put together with care, attention and a handmade touch. Fantastic value and a real treat if your postman obeys your note directing him to your secret hiding place for parcels!
Crafty Creatives boxes are only available in the UK at the moment, but I believe they have plans to expand into the EU eventually. For my US readers, Whimsey Box offers a similar service.
I’m already looking forward to Box 2!
