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.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the October parcel.

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.
