Proper Post August 2018 Review
Every Day is a Fresh Start Art Print
The first item I received is this cute art print by artist Jess Sharp. It is printed on a A5 card stock and features a bright sun behind a cloud with an inspirational message.
You Will Forever Be My Always Greeting Card
This is the card I chose for this month since my anniversary is on the 26th.
This blank card measures at 6 inches high by 4 inches wide and is paired with a brown European style envelope.
Be Kind Postcard
The next item I received was this cute postcard with a floral design and the slogan “Be Kind.” The back of the postcard has a pale pink and pale blue and black polka dot border. This card measures at 4 inches by 6 inches.
Be Kind Sticker Set
I even got matching stickers! The stickers are a set of 8 and are pretty small, each one measuring a little under an inch and a half. Other than sticking these on my kids’ foreheads when they argue, I don’t know what I would do with these, but they are cute regardless.
Popsicle Gift Box
This last item was super cute and original, but my-oh-my was it overwhelming and confusing! It did not come with any instructions, just 3 pieces that obviously needed to be folded.
I folded and twisted and tried turning this flat piece of cardstock into a box and just failed — terribly. After 30 minutes I finally gave up and went to my darling husband, who loves puzzles.
In no time, he handed me a perfect folded popsicle gift box. It really is different and original; perfect for jewelry or even a gift card. Side note: Upon visiting Proper Post’s website, I saw they had a tutorial!
Verdict: I was a lot happier with this month’s parcel than I was with last month’s but there still wasn’t much of a WOW! factor. Although the popsicle gift box is cute and original, this parcel just continues to disappoint me. I do feel, though, that this parcel is a great subscription for a teenage girl looking to add cutesy items to her backpack or locker.
