Flair & Paper July 2018 Review

My July box featured 5 super loveable greeting cards, 6 rainbow colored pencil sets with little messages, 4 magnetic bookmarks, a sticky note set, August calendar page and an adorable, roomy canvas bag to store it all in:

This month’s theme is “No Prob Llama.”

The box insert card described the meaning behind the theme and listed each item included in the box.

Flair & Paper’s specialty item appears to be their original, sassy yet sweet greeting cards. This month’s box featured 5: 3 horizontal cards measuring 5 ½ inches wide by 4 ½ high and 2 vertical cards measuring 4 ½ inches wide by 5 ½ inches high.

You Are So Loved Greeting Card – Retail Value $4.00

In my box, I received 3 horizontal cards. The first one is You Are So Loved. The card features an accent pink, self-seal A-style envelope.

The card is blank inside for a personalized message to the right person.

Adulting Is Hard Greeting Card – Retail Value $4.00

The second horizontal card I received is this awesome Adulting Is Hard. Let’s Be Unicorns Card. The card is featured with a brown A-style envelope and is blank inside. The online store does feature this card, but the accent envelope is a different color.

Thank You. You’re the best! Greeting Card – Retail Value $4.00

The third and final horizontal card I received in my July box is this Thank You You’re The Best! Card. Like the others, it is featured with an A-style envelope and has a blank inside. I especially love this card because it can be written to anyone, at any time, just to remind them how much they are loved and appreciated.

Thanks for Putting up with my meltdowns Greeting Card – Retail Value $4.00

My July box also featured 2 vertical cards and this one was my absolute favorite out of all of them. My husband is there for everything; I can’t just walk into a grocery store and find the card that fits that to tell him how much I appreciate him! Uhm…Thanks For Putting Up With My Meltdowns is original, sassy and oh so perfect. The blank card is featured with a self-seal A-style envelope.

HBD You Gorgeous Animal Greeting Card – Retail Value $4.00

The final greeting card in my July box is the birthday card featuring our llama! HBD You Gorgeous Animal is a horizontal card, blank on the inside for that special July-baby in your life!

Llama Makeup Bag – Retail Value $14.50

My box also included this Llama canvas bag, which can double over as a make-up bag as listed in Flair & Paper’s store. This bag is 10 inches long by 7 inches wide and has a black zipper.

The bag is made of natural cotton canvas and is super roomy; the entire July box contents fit in it perfectly!

Magnetic Bookmarks

The next item I received are these super cool magnetic bookmarks. I would consider these my personal favorite and WOW item.

There are 4 different bookmarks with the print on the front and back. The entire bookmark is magnetic and is both light enough to mark a single page or strong enough hold a couple of pages.

Pastel Pencils

Flair & Paper included a set 6 pretty, pastel pencils with gold messages on them in my box this month. My favorite is Work Hard, Be Kind.

Llama Sticky Notes

Another favorite item in this month’s box are the sticky notes. I LOVE sticky notes and can never have too many. I received 8 different pads, 4 different shapes, all with 20 notes in each one. That’s 160 sticky notes!!

August Calendar

I considered the August calendar insert a bonus item in my box. Its small enough to put in my canvas bag or purse and features July’s llama.

Verdict: I loved this Flair & Paper box! The colors and designs of the pencils and sticky pads, the original greeting cards and accent envelopes and especially the magnetic bookmarks. The online store currently features greeting cards, canvas bags like the one in my box, mini bags, tote bags, and notepads. To get the stationery items, you should subscribe to the box. Not all of the items could be found online, but I totaled $34.50 for the greeting cards and make-up bag, which exceeds the $19.99 a month box cost, including free shipping. That means the other items need to average $1.16 to hit the $40 promised value. This box is well worth the monthly subscription price!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? From Flair & Paper:

Value Breakdown: This box costs $19.99 + free shipping, which means that each of the 9 items in the box (not including the bonus calendar insert) has an average cost of $2.22.

I am a mother of 2 going on 3 soon and enjoy the little things in life, especially in surprise form! Monthly subscription boxes give me that surprise every time I see the mailman delivering them! My favorite boxes include beauty boxes, lifestyle boxes and anything pregnancy-related boxes; my all time favorite is my FabFitFun subscription.

  1. Via email, I spoke to Heyar. You can get the July box if you request it, but she has to make substitutions for bookmarks, pencils, and sticky notes.

  2. what a fun box!

  3. Hi there sub sisters! Yes, fantastic job on your review. You are very thorough & concise-I really appreciate that, thank you! Ok, so onto the box-Bravo! I’m sooooo excited to get this sub! Adorable & oh so fun…the llama ..I’m still cracking up! I’m going to go so far to say that if Carrie Bradshaw, (character from Sex & the City-I loved that show!),if she was to curate a box this would totally be her style. Even the theme music from the show fits perfectly with this rockin’ box! LOL It looks totally unique, the coupon makes it $10 omg- it’s well worth $20/mn for what you get. Cards are really expensive now. 2 cards at Walmart cost me over $10- plus postage- when it takes most of a $20 bill? That’s crazy! Lol I’d rather do my business with the little guy anyday- that’s why I LOVE subs – you get to have So many rare items from around the world- & not have to spend a fortune. Also the businesses of the little guy thrives & it helps to equal the playing field so Big box stores have less control Over us. Cheers to entrepreneurship & this fantabuous subscription & I absolutely love every single thing about it!!!! Be the Blessing! I’m off to subscribe… 🙃

  4. Such a cute box and great review!

  5. Do you know if we would get this box if we ordered now? I know a little girl who loves llamas.
