My Greeting Box is a monthly package of card making supplies delivered straight to your door.
My Greeting Box is the unique mix of an activity box as well as a way to build up your collection of creative materials and tools and learn new techniques to use in your own designs. You will get 3 designs to make in each box but enough materials to make 5 cards and have leftover cardstock and other materials that are useful for creating your own designs (whether on cards or scrapbooking or any other project). As well as this you get tools that you will be able to keep forever. Order before 8th January to get your January box. Keep an eye out on our website and social media for sneak peeks about the theme and card designs! In January you will get three card designs to recreate and materials to make even more cards!
The price is £22 per month.
This is a new company, and this is their third box. The previous boxes were Christmas and New Year cards, and this month we have Valentine’s cards. As it’s February next month this is perfect timing!
It’s a nicely branded box, and pink tape means it’s very securely packed.
The presentation is excellent, as always.
Here are this month’s three cards. They are all coffee- or tea-themed, which I think is a lovely idea.
This is an example of one of the projects. The instructions are always meticulous and the illustrations are very clear.
There’s a very generous quantity of cardstock! You’ve got five blank cards, three for the included projects and two more for your own designs, or repeats. There’s more than enough card to cover a few mistakes too! Also included are five little plastic envelopes to put the finished cards in.
Adhesive tape, plus a whole lot more stamps to use with the acrylic block that was included with the first box. There another nice ink pad to add to the collection too!
More adhesive pads, paper circles that are for the ‘Perfect Blend’ card – very thoughtful as it’s difficult to draw an accurate circle! I love they’ve included these little stickers, so you can make sure the recipient knows you’ve made the card yourself.
The sweeties are a a very sweet bonus!
What a lovely collection of things.
As it says in the blurb, the idea is that you build up your collection of craft and stationary items month by month. The pen, inkpad, and stamps are very nice additions!
Individual handmade cards of the type you find at craft fairs are not cheap, especially ones like these projects. Looking at the instructions, they’re a lot more to them than simply sticking on a few sparkles and a couple of embellishments. They are incredibly well-thought-out, and take time and care to create.
This is a wonderful way of developing a new hobby and exercising your creativity, as well as acquiring a useful selection of accessories. Including the extra cardstock and blank cards means you are able to make more than just the three projects included.
The projects themselves are excellent, and the instructions, which are very good tutorials on cardmaking techniques, are a great way to be guided through producing something that’s pretty much guaranteed to look impressive!
I particularly like these three designs this month. I think the coffee theme is great fun, and I already know which one I’ll be making for my coffee-loving husband!
