December Whimseybox Review and Discount
Whimseybox for December was air dry clay. Every month, Whimseybox sends project instructions, DIY supplies, a reusable storage box, and an original 5Ã—7 original art print each month. Whimseyboxâ€™s slogan is â€œStop pinning, start makingâ€. I have friends who love Pinterest and are always making the newest and coolest crafts. While I consider myself crafty, I never find the time to pick out a craft and go to the store to get everything. Whimseybox sends me everything I need to create a great craft, all for $15.00! You can’t beat that, no gas, no googling, just fun.
Whimseybox sends their materials in a reusable box.
Whimseybox included materials to make an air dry clay bowl. Whimseybox included a large package of clay, stick, file, cookie cutter, ribbon and directions. There was also card to create your own calender for 2014
Whimseybox included full color instructions. I was a bit nervous about if I could make a clay pot, but it turned out pretty easy and fun! Once you roll out the clay, you can press object in for designs or use cookie cutters to make shape.
I love the finished piece. The clay is super light when it is dry. The lace made a beautiful impression. I am going to use this in the kitchen for my rings, when I cook. The finger nail file was included to smooth out any rough edges. I really didn’t need to use it on the bowl.
I wanted to create something else and want to do something Disney related. I tried to make a Mickey head impression, but it didn’t work out. I grabbed my Mickey cookie cutter and created a large Mickey head. I wrote 2013, to commemorate our family vacation this year.
I still wasn’t done playing with the clay, so I made a mini bowl. I really have no idea what I will use this for, but it’s cute!
Whimseybox includes a badge of your completed project. I feel like a Girl Scout again!
Final Thought: This box was so much fun. In school, I hated art and I was never good at it. Whimseybox makes me feel really crafty. The projects turned out great and they were easy to do. I also have tons of clay left, so I am going to let my boys make something. I didn’t get a chance to make the calender, but I am going to use the ribbon to create one.
