Whimsey Box Review - Craft Subscription Box - July 2013

About a year ago I signed up for a 3-month subscription to Whimsey Box. The first box I received was right after they upped the cost of the box from $15 to $25, and I wasn’t happy with the quality of materials in the box. (Or the cost of the box). I reached out to Whimsey Box to let them know that I was disappointed in the value and quality of the box, and that I wanted to cancel the rest of my 3-month subscription. I was pleasantly surprised that they immediately wrote back, apologized, cancelled my subscription and refunded me for the entirety of the subscription.

So, after that one experience I wasn’t very happy with the contents of the box and the price, but I was very impressed with their customer service. Since this happened, they lowered the cost of their boxes from $25 back down to $15, and from what I can tell the quality of materials has improved as well. I decided I had to give them another chance – I resubscribed!

This month’s project is a DIY dyed tote bag. This looks like something I will actually use and it seems easy enough to make!

First look!

Verdict: I was very happy with the contents of this box. (I also love the packaging!) This canvas tote is a high-quality material, and they’ve included everything else needed to make my own one-of-a-kind tote! If we finally have some nice summer weather this weekend, I will definitely be making this project out on the porch!

Do you subscribe to Whimsey Box? What do you think of it? I was not of fan of the box I received in 2012, but so far my Whimsey Box experience in 2013 is great! I’m glad I resubscribed!

  1. What does the finished product look like?!

  2. That concept is cool. Living in a small apartment right now, I don’t have room for a bunch of craft supplies, so having all the supplies for one craft would be great. Glad to hear the quality is better.

  3. Just signed up .. My daughter just asked me when we can do a craft project together!
    Looking forward to getting this 🙂

    • Yay! Sounds perfect 🙂


  4. This looks like an awesome craft. Now I regret not signing up last month. But I’m all set for next month, the coupon was irrestible.
