The First Crafty Creatives Subscription Box.. ♥

Crafty Creatives is a brand new monthly subscription box, that provides you with a selection of themed craft goodies, and delivers them to your door. They are the first UK craft subscription service, and each box will have an exciting array of art and craft product samples, plus a seperate craft kit with instructions and supplies. Crafty Creatives was created by Isobel and Claire, two 30-something sisters from Scotland. They love all things creative, and each have a varied and colourful history of employment and interests
The subscription cost is £10 a month, plus £2.95 postage and packing, and you can cancel anytime.
I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to get the very first Crafty Creatives box! The box came very neatly wrapped in pretty tissue paper. I had been waiting patiently to receive my box, and it beat my expectations! So let me show you what I got.
  Can you tell? The theme for this box was FLORALS! Yipee!! Couldn’t have picked a better theme myself 😉 So everything in the box was in keeping with this lovely theme. The contents of the box included:
  • Art card featuring artwork by Liz Kapiloto
  • CC kit: to make a fabric flower brooch
  • 3 wooden floral printed buttons
  • 15 lucite flower beads
  • Floral shoe gift tag
  • 2 floral pegs
  • 5 wooden floral shaped buttons
  • 1 sheet of floral tissue paper
  • Glass flower pendant
  • Embroidery thread
  • 1m of floral ribbon
  • 1 fat quarter of William Morris fabric from Fabric Freedom
  • 2 smiley flower beads
  • Full size bottle of Fabri-Tac glue

 A lovely little note from Claire and Isobel came in the box, with two little smiley buttons! There was also 5 wooden flower shaped buttons, and 3 large round buttons with a floral print.
I love these flower beads! I’m not quite sure how to use them, or what to use them for, but they are lovely colours and have a frosted glass feel to them. These came in a dainty little brown envelope.
 Probably my favourite product in the box; a whole meter of floral ribbon! So pretty. The floral tissue paper is also gorgeous!
 Lots of other little floral treats; some blue thread, a glass floral pendant, 2 lovely cute little pegs, and a shoe shaped tag.
 The kit that came in the crafty creatives box is to make a floral flower brooch, and it comes with some easy to follow instructions too. I love this fabric. The kit also came with a fat quarter of William Morris print fabric, and a full size bottle of Fabri-tac glue, which I’m sure will come in very useful for various projects!

Here are some makes from the CC Twitter page using these goodies!

Overall, I am so happy to have received this box! I think a subscription would make a great gift, and are much more worthwhile and exciting than beauty boxes. Also, the RRP of these products I’m sure add up to far more than the £10 the box is being sold for, so you get a great deal! I also think that this box would be great for crafty DIY beginners, as well as craft enthusiasts who are looking to try new things and add to their collections. And the excitement of wondering what the next theme will be adds to the fun of it!
Thank you for my box Crafty Creatives! Can’t wait to get my craft on! I hope some of my readers will consider subscribing 🙂 Let me know if you do!

    I'm in tears over literally every "first CC box" post I see. I was one of the early sign ups so I got the invite for the first box but I couldn't order because I'm out here 🙁 xxxx

    That looks and sounds so cool. And there's so much more in there than in the various beauty boxes that are about.

    You have inspired me to sign up for this 🙂 I've always wanted to return to my creative and crafty nature but I wasn't sure where to start – I need to learn to sow etc! xx
