April 2014 Whimseybox – Save $5.00 – Craft Subscription Box
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!

Every box included a 5 x 7 art card on the front of their instructions. This card says “Do Brave Things In the Name Of Love”.
The project this month was Calligraphy, I must admit, I am disappointed. I have horrible handwriting, so doing artsy handwriting sounds impossible. Whimseybox walks you through each step to practice. writing.
Whimseybox includes everything you need: standard nib, imperial nib, india ink, and a pen holder. Whimseybox includes a button every month for the specified project. There is also a label to write your name on, and attach to your finished piece.
Whimseybox includes a sample upper and lowercase alphabet, grid paper to practice and plan white paper.
Final Thought: I am a bit disappointed with this month’s Whimseybox. I hated handwriting class as a child, so practicing Calligraphy, doesn’t sound fun. I am going to set this project aside and try to tackle it when my schedule slows down. Maybe I can make a simple sign for my house. I generally really like my Whimseyboxes, this one just wasn’t my taste. SAVE. You can save $5.00 on your first box by clicking HERE.
