Now, on to this month's offering from WhimseyBox! And yes, I'll stop posting these eventually... right about when I stop squealing like a teenaged girl at a Justin Bieber concert when they come in.
The interior box was the same size as last month's, so I'm assuming this is the standard size for WhimseyBox. I didn't think I needed to take another set of pictures of the grand opening. I did take a picture of the back to show the nifty label, useful if you plan to repurpose it as storage -
I didn't even notice a quote last month (I just checked and it simply said to be warned, may cause craftsplosions), but this month under the flap is a wonderful quote by Pablo Picasso -
"Every child is an artist. The problem is staying an artist when you grow up." - Pablo PicassoThis month, I'm assuming as a nod to Valentine's Day, the ribbon and paper is a gorgeous wine red. The card on top says "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." on the front and has tips and URLs to instructional videos on the back geared towards the items in the box.
And finally...the goodies -
At first glance, it doesn't seem like much but it does have so many possibilities. The notepad on the left is 3" x 5" (standard index card) while the wooden blanks measured approximately 5" x 6". There were two spools of washi tape and lots of colorful rubber bands. The theme this month was a Mini Memo Board but I'm not sure I'll use any of these pieces in that way. After receiving an awesome anniversary collage from my sister, I may use these pieces to thank her for her amazing gift.
I'm still happy with the box look forward to next month.
