MJ Project DIY Subscription Box Review – Dec 2013
Project DIY is a new DIY and craft subscription box that focuses on jewelry and accessories. Each month they get their inspiration for the projects from runway trends. This month is Baroque N’ Roll – a look that really isn’t me (hence me not getting around to making the projects until January).
The Subscription Box: Project DIY
The Cost: $30 a month (includes shipping, and first month comes with a free starter kit).
The Products: The materials and instructions needed to make 2-3 accessories.
Ships to: US only
Lace and Gem Turban
Materials (Also, included with this project – but I forgot to get a picture of – needle and thread).
This was easy enough to make considering I shy away from any project requiring sewing!
Belle of the Ball Earrings
(FYI – all the instructions are available online, or via their free app. I use the app and love it – so many step-by-step pictures!)
These were super easy to make – I just needed glue and jewelry tools. (The first box comes with a jewelry tool starter kit).
Baroque Hand Adornment
I cheated a bit on this project and didn’t put a clasp on the bracelet since it was easy enough to slip over my wrist and putting on bracelets with clasps by myself is nearly impossible!
Verdict: This was a good box – the projects look professional, and the materials they included are good quality – it just wasn’t a match for my personal style. I am more excited about the Film Noir January Box though! Here’s a sneak peek at the two projects:
A leather and silver charm bracelet, and chain belt:
What do you think of the upcoming January projects?
