Verdict: I like that Amazepack includes everything you need to do the craft - they make no assumptions about what materials I may already have! I also like that the projects are simple enough that I can do them in a few hours. What do you think of Amazepack?

I am going to have to chime in and agree with everyone here. For $25 I would hope that they would give you a lot more. I think you could get all of these supplies for a lot cheaper anywhere else.

I agree with Nichole. I love the idea of craft boxes, but they don’t seem to provide the value of other subscription boxes and this one looks almost…tacky. “Custom to the box?” It looks like they just decanted value sizes into smaller bottles. No flip-top lids? No labels? Kept the sticker on the cheapy foam brush?

Cute idea, but $25 for a handful of ballons, some acrylic paint, and a sponge seems beyond steep. You could make these for well under $10 at any Dollar store on any corner in Anywhere, USA.
