Paper Panduh Subscription Box Review – December 2016
The Panduh Box is is a stationery subscription box from the Paper Panduh shop.
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.
One thing I love about this box is how much thought they put into presentation. The box comes wrapped in a shiny gold envelope. Inside, everything is carefully wrapped and topped with a ribbon and these pretty feather cutouts!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The theme of this box is “Moonstruck”. The word is written on the inside of the box lid, and the dreamy, magical vibe permeates everything inside, beginning with the info card.
This note appears on the other side of the card. I love when even the info card is pretty enough to consider a print!
3 Gem Cards – Value $1.00?
These gem cards are so pretty! I love the way the colors in each design blend together. It’s like a watercolor painting.
These cards have the weight that a typical postcard would. You could use them in a myriad of ways—decorate a book, add them to a greeting card… you could even decorate the back sides of them and string them together into some kind of a mobile.
This parchment bag holds the next item. Again, Panduh Box puts so much effort into presentation. I love the romantic flower on this bag!
Wild at Heart Sticky Notes – Value $4.50
These are so pretty! I love the deep indigo color along the edges. It compliments the lilac and teal hues of the floral design beautifully.
I think $4.50 is pretty steep for what’s a relatively shallow stack of stickies. But they are a cute, custom design!
Moon Sticky Notes – Value $3.50?
I couldn’t find this item online, so I linked to a similar item on the Paper Panduh site.
I love the way these stickies are presented—set against a card patterned like the night sky. Amazing stationery items like this sticky notepad always put me in a delightful conundrum. I love them so much that I want to use them for everything, but I also love them so much that I’m like “Oh no, I have to save these for really important stuff!”
Feather Washi Tape – Value $3.00
This item wooed me before I even laid eyes on the tape itself! How cute is this box?
The box acts as a dispenser, too.
The tape itself features a feather pattern with a watercolor-esque flair. It’s gently sticky and just a bit translucent. It’s so pretty, I want to put it on all of my planner pages!
Transparent Feather Stickers – Value $3.99
And if you liked that washi tape, you’ll love this sheet of feather stickers!
This plastic sheet has a nice shine to it. The delicate, painterly details of each feather design stand out even more on the transparent background. I’m so smitten with the vibrant tones of these stickers and the effortless, elegant shapes!
Doily Postcard – Value $1.00?
I couldn’t find this item online, so I just estimated the value. This is a simple postcard that’s about the size of two business cards set side by side. It’s little and understated, but in that way, it’s unique. I especially love the delicate doily pattern that just barely appears on the bottom left corner of the ivory card. The back is blank.
To the Moon and Back Pencil – Value $2.50
I love novelty pencils like this! The gold text is so pretty. I do wish the box came with a sharpener! I had to dig around to find one in my junk drawer. There’s something so delightfully satisfying about writing with a classic number two pencil!
This organza drawstring bag holds the next item!
Mini Stork Craft Scissors – Value $9.95
I adore these scissors! They have an elegant, antique feel about them, but they work like new.
They’re smaller than your typical craft scissor, which makes them perfect for snipping stray threads and cutting fine shapes in craft paper.
Moon Planner Clip – Value $5.95?
This clip from Posh Pieces by Melissa is really cute. I’m a sucker for sparkles, so the glittery design won me over instantly!
This item is made of card-weight paper and a pop of ribbon, but boy is it sturdy! My planner is always getting tossed around in my bag, so I need solid accessories. This gold clip is going to be a great complement to my collection of supplies.
Moonstruck Washi Stickers – Value $5.99
This pack contains three sheets of washi-weight paper stickers. The stickers have a finish that’s a bit more satiny than typical matte washi tape. And some of the stickers have a pinch of metallic gold, to boot.
The gemstone hues are rich but very elegant. I think my favorite design is the colorful depiction of the lunar phases!
2 Sheets of Planner Stickers – Value $7.33?
I couldn’t find this exact design on the Creating & Co. site, so I linked to a similar item! I adore planner stickers, and these are super cute. The moon page is my favorite, though the pink and blue sheet has some really useful shapes and icons. Note that the gold-looking ones aren’t actually metallic. They’re shaded in a way that gives them the look of having shiny ink.
Butterfly Cutout – Value $0.50?
This is just a tiny (maybe an inch or so wide?) cardstock butterfly. It’s blank on the back, so you could punch a hole in it and use it as a gift tag, or use it to decorate a planner, greeting card, or scrapbook. It’s a small piece, but it reiterates the dreamy, ethereal tone of the box.
Verdict: I’m a fan of Paper Panduh, and this box didn’t disappoint. I love the Moonstruck theme and the gorgeous colors and patterns it invoked. Everything has a magical quality, and I was happy to get so many very practical items, as long as some more crafty, creative pieces (like the gem cards and the little butterfly). Some of the prices I found for the items were a bit higher than what I would’ve expected (over $7.00 for two sheets of planner stickers!)—the value I calculated was almost $50.00. At $34.00, this is already a pricier stationery box (for me), so I’m glad that they packed so much value inside. Still, I might’ve appreciated one bigger item, like a notebook or pouch.
