Paper Panduh Subscription Box Review – October 2016
The Panduh Box is is a stationery subscription box from the Paper Panduh. The Panduh Box is filled with super cute stickers, washi tape, planner labels, and much more. They also have a stickers-only box called Sticky Panduh, if you want to focus on growing your sticker collection.
How fancy is this metallic gold packaging? It feels more like a present than a subscription box.
The box itself is also adorable. Love that lavender color. And anything to do with pandas, I am totally into.
Lift the lid, and you’ll find a little parcel wrapped in patterned paper and yarn.
The sunflower felt a little summery to me, but the presentation, along with the “Warm & Cozy” sticker on the lid was a considerate touch that not all boxes have.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Here’s the card for the October box. Simple and sweet. I like the coral tone of the poppy illustrations a lot.
Patterned Washi Tape – Value $3.99?
Washi tape is one of my favorite craft supplies. Use it to decorate a letter or your planner, hang up a photo… it’s an easy way to add a little adorableness to ordinary things. These rolls have a translucent quality to them—they’re not quite opaque—and the patterns feature a feminine take on autumnal hues.
What’s inside this crisp little box?
Home Sweet Home Pen – Value $3.25
Kawaii Argyle Pen – Value $0.60?
I really love the house pen! The colorful details (the tiny tree and windows…) are adorable, and the point is really really fine. It’s the kind of point that could make even my scribbly handwriting look pretty.
The argyle patterned pen is also really cute, though it doesn’t feel as special as the first. It is, however, perfect for fall. I never thought a pen could be “cozy”, but this one looks as snuggly as a sweater.
Here they are up close.
See how sharp that point is? It’s the fineness of a mechanical pencil in a pen.
Coffee Cup Paper Clip – Value about $0.50
I would never have imagined that someone would turn a coffee to-go cup into a cute paper clip, but I am so glad they did! I’m a very avid coffee drinker, so this gold design is right up my alley. I’ll use this on my planner to hold used pages back. I wouldn’t want to spoil it on papers I wouldn’t get to see every day!
Next, there’s this charmingly decorated parchment envelope. I like all the tiny packages-within-a-package this box features!
Twinings English Breakfast Tea Bag – Value $0.14
I love tea on chilly fall days, especially something classic like English Breakfast. A tea bag doesn’t quite fit with the stationery theme of the box, plus, lots of subscription boxes have been including tea lately, so it doesn’t feel super special. That said, I don’t mind adding another teabag to my collection!
Scrapbook Die Cuts for Fall – Value $6.00?
These little die cut shapes and sayings are so sweet. To me, they really scream Thanksgiving, so I’d probably use them on a scrapbook page, or in crafts for around the Thanksgiving dinner party. (Maybe use them to decorate place cards or napkin rings?) The design feels very fresh, with the handwriting-style fonts and clean lines. The value is based on a similar item.
Autumn Planner Stickers – Value $7.00?
It’s sticker time! Paper Panduh is all about stickers, especially for practical things like planners. This Paper Panduh-designed sticker set features matte designs in all kinds of sizes and shapes. I love the days of the week ones and how they’re punctuated with flowers!
They even gave a nod to pumpkin spice culture! (Then again, how can you not?)
Warm and Cozy Planner Stickers – Value $5.50?
These stickers are designed by Caress Press exclusively for the Panduh Box. I think these are so cute. They remind me of stickers I’d get in the back of planners and calendars when I was little. Like the other set, they’re pretty matte and easy to write on. The pretty designs and fresh, pink-infused color palette make even paying the bills seem fun!
One more sticker pack to go! I feel like there’s already been so much cool stationery in this box…
Stationery Stickers – Value $5.50?
These stickers seem destined for cards and correspondence. They break from the more feminine colors of the other sheets, but the swirly script and floral details keep them feeling pretty. These are a bit stiffer than the other stickers, making them feel a bit more sophisticated.
I like that there’s a variety of messages, from more generic ones to ones that focus on specific celebrations (birthdays, congrats, thanks, etc.).
5 Sheets of Scrapbooking Paper – Value about $1?
These sheets have muted, rustic patterns on one side and are blank on the other. They look about 6 inches square and have a sturdiness just shy of cardstock. The more subdued colors are less exciting after seeing the bright oranges and corals on the other items in the box. I think these more traditional pieces would be great in a number of fall (or even winter) crafts (cards, gift tags?) but they don’t delight me like the other items.
Verdict: I really liked this Panduh Box! I’m getting very into planners and how fun it is to dress them up with stickers and things. This box is like a starter kit for making an awesome planner, with labels for special dates and other designs to dress up the margins! The value of the items altogether is about $34.oo (I think some of the Paper Panduh exclusive sticker sheets were priced a bit high for what they are), which is just above the $29.95 price. Especially considering the thought put into the presentation (all the little packages, the decorations…), I think this box is worth the surprises inside.
