Each month comes with a card with an illustration and explanation of the theme:
August is Let's Never Grow Up month!
Mac & Cheese Bookmark
OMG I love this adorable little mac-and-cheese buddy bookmark! And they are working on an art project with glue and popsicle sticks! What a perfect, but unexpected back-to-school bookmark!
Another classic nostalgic item! The smell of crayons or playdoh will always transport me to my childhood!
Bubble Blowing Bubbles Bookmark
Another cutie! (All bookmarks have a separately designed front and back.)
And magnets to help them hug the page of your book!
Verdict: This subscription falls into the delightful category for me. It might not be a good fit for everyone, but I'm always happy to see these cute bookmarks in any of my book subscriptions, so a subscription full of them is just extra awesome.
Crafted Van bookmarks retail for around $4.50, so the value of this subscription is around $13.50. It cost me about $10.50 shipped, so I still came out ahead. (Plus these designs may be exclusive - I can't find them in their etsy shop!)
What do you think of Crafted Van? Did this month's box take you back to your childhood?
