Whimsey Box Review - Craft Subscription Box - August 2013

This month’s project is making a beaded wrap bracelet. The look of this bracelet is totally my style, so I couldn’t wait to make it!

In addition to the materials for the bracelet, this box also came some cute pencils with phrases like “Makers Gonna Make” and “DIY 4 LIFE.”

They included a clip board and binder clips to help keep the bracelet strings in place while you work.

The finished product! They included enough materials to make another bracelet with the mint green cord as well, so I think I’ll make that soon.

Verdict: This was a fun box for me – I got to make a bracelet that I really like, and it only took about 1.5 episodes of Pretty Little Liars to make! The instructions were easy to follow, but I did use their more in depth instructions to start so I could see a video demonstration of how to start the bracelet. Do you subscribe to Whimsey Box? What did you think of the wrap bracelet project this month?

  1. ahhhhh i think i want this too.

  2. I also got my box yesterday. I got yellow and green cords, the white would have been better for my tastes. This was my first box, so we will see how thibgs go.

  3. I love diy projects so I may have to sign up for this one as well. I watch Pretty Little Liars too btw! 🙂

  4. I’m still waiting for my Aug box, but this looks awesome. I’m so excited now.

  5. I loved my whismsey
    subscription but they were akways at least a month behind. I had to cancel when they got so behind that I had been billed twice more than the boxes shipped. They refunded me, then took two months for the next box and I finally cancelled. I then recieved my May box about a week ago – even though it was refunded!

    If they got their shipping in order I would sign up again.

  6. Just got home and my box is here! So excited to make my braclet, love the style and color. The instructions look easy to follow. Already can’t wait for the next box!

  7. Wow! You work very quickly. I haven’t yet received my August box, so this was definitely a spoiler post for me. 🙂

    I think I’ll decorate the board also, and use it in my office revamp.
