I am not a beauty blogger. (Duh.) The various beauty boxes like Glossybox, She Said Beauty, Joliebox…none of those really make me want to grab my debit card and shout at the monitor “TAKE MY DAMN MONEY ALREADY AND SEND ME THINGS”. I just don’t get excited over beauty products.
However, when I read about Crafty Creatives, I couldn’t fill in my email address for their sign up list fast enough! Crafty Creatives is a monthly subscription service where you’ll get sent a box of crafty goodies around a theme – the first month was florals, which extended even to the paper wrapping inside!
The first thing you find when you open the inside wrapping is a pretty art card, with details of what you can find inside the box on the back. I like that they give some suggestions about what sort of things you could do with the things in the box – there are some things that I probably wouldn’t use normally, but having the suggestions helps.
So, whats inside the box?
Fabric, buttons, beads, glue, threads, tissue, glue… so much stuff that you probably wouldn’t normally choose, but having a themed box like this is a great way to inspire you to make something different. I’ve been so lax on the crafting front since I moved in with Alex…2 years ago…and I want to do more with my stash that I already have. The main item in the box is a kit so you can make a floral brooch for yourself.
The instructions look really simple, but if you still need help, Crafty Creatives also provide video tutorials over on their YouTube channel
I think this box is really good for a beginner crafter, because it will help to build up a craft stash and will show new ways to make things. It would be perfect as a gift for someone who crafts a bit as well – I can think of a few friends who would enjoy this!
The Crafty Creatives box costs £12.95 per month – the same price as many of the beauty subscription boxes.
Oooh! This looks much more exciting than a Glossybox : )
This looks amazing! I love doing crafty things but I never have anything to do it with so this might force me to do/make something!
This is such a cute idea! My sister is really crafty so I am definitely adding this to my birthday ideas list!
Ooh, this looks good. I don’t care enough about beauty products to waste money each month on stuff I might never use. However, craft products that I might never use is a different story! Tempting…

*runs to check if can afford it on new salary*
Wowwee that’s exactly the type of monthly crafty box I’ve been looking for! I am now adding this to my wish list for when I’m not totally broke! Must admit though £13 (+ P&P??) is a bit on the pricey side – would still be interested to try. I wonder do these monthly box subscription companies offer discount depending on time of loyalty?
Thanks for sharing Hayley :o)
