A couple of week’s ago I had a very exciting delivery in the post!
I love getting parcels and this one contained completely unknown items which made it all the more exciting! It was lovely opening it up and seeing a hint of the contents through the opaque white tissue paper!
This is ‘Floral Pavillion’ sample of a Crafty What Nots box of craft goodies from www.jennysis.com!
Here are the contents!
There were floral cut outs, buttons, coloured twine, sticky pads, some butterfly embellishments, two little magnets, two coloured chalky ink pads, a flower stencil, not to mentions some very nice paper and card stock!!
The selection contained paper and card of different thicknesses and finish – I especially like the textured vintage florals!
All this had been sent to me by Jenny for me to review as part of her new business venture Crafty What Nots!
Included were some white ready folded card to make into greetings cards or anything else which you might dream up!
Within the box Jenny sends some detailed instructions on how to make your own sweet little cardboard handbag!
and also some suggestions for other projects!
I haven’t used all the craft items yet but I did try out the chalky ink pads as the Peony and Blue colours really appealed to me. I used these and some of the floral shaped embellishments to make two cards! Jenny supplies little sticky foam pads so making the cards was easy!
I thought the plant card would just need a ‘happy birthday’ stamp at the side to finish it off but I haven’t got one of my own so will sort through the Craftseller free papers and I am sure I will find something!
I also made myself a little floral storage box!
I have to say I really had fun making these things and I still have a lot of the content to continue creating pretty things. The contents inside the delivery box were presented beautifully and all of the items were useful as well as attractive. Even the ribbons and twine used to tie the items together could be used in a project.
Jenny sends out these boxes on request and the one I received, contains around £20 of retail price craft items but would only cost you £12.50 plus £2.50 p&p.
There are discounts available if you order more than one at a time, and each has different themes. – see Jenny’s website for more information!
I think these boxes would make a very exciting gift to send to a crafty friend or family member. Imagine being off sick, laid up in bed and receiving one of these instead of flowers!! There are all sorts of occasions when these boxes would be fun to receive – including treating yourself!!
Well I hope you enjoyed the peak into the box! I’m now going to link up with Handmade Monday and see what else is going on in the crafty world! x
