Each month comes with a card with an illustration and explanation of the theme:

December is all about letting “your dreams set sail!”

Jellyfish Bookmark

Leave it to Crafted Van to turn a sea creature I normally find scary into such a cutie!

Happy Whale Bookmark

All bookmarks have designs on both sides, and magnets to help them hug the page of your book:


Sailboat Bookmark

If you are looking for a high seas book to pair with these bookmarks, I recommend Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller from the March 2017 Owl Crate!


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.

The only downside for me is that I was really hoping for some holiday/winter themed bookmarks this month!

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? Which bookmark is your favorite?

  1. The jellyfish is my favorite, but I know a human version of a shark (haha), so I’ll give that one to him. They point out that these work out great to hold smaller stacks of paper and planner pages, etc…other uses, in addition to book marks. These are so darn cute!
