I know… I know… You guys are probably tired of hearing about subscription boxes. Sorry, but I love them! Most I’ve checked out so far have been beauty related, but Whimsey Box is for the crafters! Now, to be clear, I am a subscriber and links in this post are my referral links, but Whimsey Box did send me a free box to check out and I am in love! Check out my Whimsey Box project…
Fun, right? I’ve never made jewelry before and really wouldn’t have tried it had it not been for my Whimsey Box, but now that I know how easy it is, I think I’m hooked! The project was super easy, start to finish and my Whimsey Box came with step by step instructions (with awesome, clear and easy to follow pictures) and all of the tools and materials I needed to complete the project.
I took pictures of my work, step-by-step, to share with you guys, but then it seemed silly to post them when the insert instruction pictures were virtually identical. I was really impressed with the instructions (if you can’t tell!) All of the materials were identified on their own card, so no guessing what something was for, and I love the fact that they even went as far as making sure I had a razor for a nice, clean edge. The materials were brand name, high quality stuff. That always makes me happy.
I have enough clay left over to make another 6 or 7 necklace/earring sets (shhh… someone is getting jewelry for Christmas). At $15 per month for the box, I think it’s a pretty good deal. Plus, if you refer your friends who are interested in signing up, they get $5 off their first box and you get a $15 credit (yay, free box!)
The hardest part of the project, at least for me, was being patient while the pieces cooled after baking. I lack patience in a major way, especially when I’m excited about a project. Actual craft time invested in this project is about 20 minutes. Of course, with baking, cooling and glue drying, it was done a few minutes here and there over the course of two days. I started it Saturday and had completed jewelry to wear out and about by Sunday afternoon.
Like most subscription services, Whimsey Box is curated, meaning you set some preferences in the beginning and that helps determine what comes in your boxes. Intrigued? You can check out Whimsey Box through my referral link and earn a $5 credit toward your first box.
