Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside this month’s Busy Bee Stationery Subscription Box. This box was huge, we couldn’t help but wonder what treasures awaited us!
Everything that we received in this month’s Busy Bee Box.
The theme is “functional, fun and glittery” and features brands like; Santoro London, Project Life, and American Crafts.
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert that reveals the boxes theme and the different brands that are featured this month
Santoro Gorjuss Pen Set
We received two packs (possibly by mistake?) of these three packs of pens. Each is cute and unique with a different Gorjuss girl on it.
The coolest part? Unlike some of the other more deceptive pens out there these pens actually write the same color that is printed on the outside!
American Crafts Pattern Binder Clips
These are cute but also pretty minimalist! Love the simple and clean design. Typically we use binder clips to seal chip bags but we will definitely be using these for something more aesthetic!
Project Life Photo Overlays
The perfect way to dress up a simple 4×6 is with one of these beautiful overlays! We received 12 of these overlays in a variety of styles and sizes.
Pictured on the back is each overlay that is included in the kit.
We like that they give us a good variety of more formal and also some silly ones!
Gorjuss Pencil Holder
Our favorite thing in the box? Possibly. We really can’t decide because we really loved this one. Each side of the cube has a different Gorjuss Girl on it!
There are four separate quadrants to keep your pens and pencils in as well! Perfect place to put our new Gorjuss Girl Pens!
American Crafts Zazz Glitter Glue
Totally fits into the “glittery” portion of this subscription boxes theme for the month! Perfect way to add a little pi”zazz” to our paper crafts!
Gorjuss Little Sticky Notes
Can we say love more than once to describe something? Because we kinda’ love, love these! This book of sticky notes has 240 little notes inside
In many different designs and sizes! All of which are super adorable!
Also, is it okay if we say these all kind of remind us just a bit of Emily the Strange? Just sweeter.
Project Life Heidi Swapp Glitter Kit
We’re such fans of this we already have a few of these items! This fun and colorful set includes 24 4×6 glitter cards, 24 3×4 glitter cards, and 26 glitter shapes.
These are the smaller glitter cards that were included! How spunky are they – we just love the colors! Perfect for summer
Santoro Gorjuss Mousepad
Um cute? YES! This is called “On top of the world” and is fitting because it kind of makes our heart sing a bit! We don’t really use a mousepad but definitely think this is cute enough to use as a decoration for our little “office” space
Crate Paper Confetti Chipboard
This is also in the running for favorite item! We just CANNOT choose! Love all the prints and we feel that the theme and fonts are current and beautiful. Love the watercolor styles and the inclusion of birds to boot. Perfect way to dress up any of your many paper crafts!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Busy Bee Stationery Subscription Box is a great way to amplify your collection. We love that they use a monthly theme and it comes together so well! Presentation is awesome, most of the items included speak for themselves! Quality – AWESOME. Any planner addict knows that the items and brands that they are including are EVERYTHING! Curation, great! We love this month because not only do we get a fun and glittery assortment but we also receive items that are functional and useful! We think this is a great option for anyone who scrapbooks, has a planner, or makes memory books or handmade cards!
As far as box economy The Busy Bee Stationery Subscription Box costs $39.90 each month and for that we received $65.56 in items and we couldn’t find the price of the pens. So is this a steal? We thinks so!
