WhimseyBox March 2014 – Soft Hands Set – Discount – Save $5.00 – Craft Subscription Box Review
WhimseyBox is a craft subscription box that sends a complete craft, with all the supplies needed, for $15.00 a month. Every month, WhimseyBox sends project instructions, DIY supplies, a reusable storage box, and an original 5×7 original art print each month. WhimseyBox’s slogan is “Stop pinning, start making”. I love Pinterest, but I am horrible at completing projects. It takes so much time to plan a craft, take the kids to the store with me and then attempt the project. WhimseyBox sends everything to me for only $15.00 a month. There is even a coupon to save you $5.00 on your first box!

WhimseyBox ships buy USPS. There is an outer cardboard wrapping, that protects the actual box.
The inner box is a nice sturdy material, and can be reused for storage.
I love WhimseyBox uses such pretty ribbon in their boxes, I always save it and use it to tag my luggage when I fly.
WhimseyBox includes step by step instructions to make each craft. This month is the Soft Hands Set. You make a sugar scrub and handmade natural lotion. There were too scents this month, lemon and lavender. If you have a longer subscription, you got to pick your fragrance. I picked lavender.
Every month, WhimseyBox includes a button as a badge for completing the project.
WhimseyBox included everything to make a sugar scrub and some all natural handmade lotion. The jars and labels were included too. The labels are from kidecals and there was a discount code to get 20% off any future orders! There was even a bottle of essential oil!
I didn’t take step by step instructions for this one, because it was so easy. You just mix the honey, sugar, sweet almond oil and essential oil together and BAM, sugar scrub. This stuff smells fantastic and made my hands so soft.
Hand Made Lotion
You had to melt the beeswax as the first step. I didn’t have a double boiler so I try to use a bowl and a glass. That was taking forever to melt, so I went another way.
After my first try wasn’t working, I just used the pot of boiling water, and sat the glass inside. I covered it with foil, so the heat wouldn’t escape, and it worked great.
You had to melt the beeswax, coconut oil and shea butter together. This took some time, but it was easy once I used my foil to trap the heat.
After everything melted, you poured it into the jar, added the rest of the almond oil and the essential oil. You put it in the refrigerator and let it cool for 10 minutes, then stir. You keep repeating this process until you get lotion.
The finished projects turned out great!
Final Thought: This was one of my favorite Whimseyboxes. This was fun and not terribly difficult. I love that I have extra essential oil to use. I have read some great benefits of essential oils, and I can’t wait to try this oil. I love how Whimseybox includes everything for the craft! SAVE.
