This card is so cute with the colors and the design. I genuinely like it. I don’t know who I would send it to, though. Maybe to a grieving friend? Either way, it is a nice card and a great addition to my ever-growing collection.

Flair & Paper October 2018 - Gift Tag Top

Bonus: Gift Tags

These weren’t on the product list, so I consider them bonus items! I received two gift tags, one in the Why Hello There Pumpkin design and one to match the fall spider.

Flair & Paper October 2018 - Calendar Current Month Front

Calendar

The last item in the box comes with all of my beloved Flair & Paper boxes: a calendar for the current month. I love these!

Verdict: I adore Flair & Paper!  The only time I have been let down was not receiving their September box . But this October fall box makes up for it! It is beautifully crafted with such a great color scheme. As soon as I opened my box, I said “preeeety.” I also enjoyed that it wasn’t just Halloween-themed, but that they included some Halloween-ish items, too.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but if you sign up now you will receive the November box.

Coupon – Use code WELCOME to save 50% off your first box of a 3, 6, and 12-month subscription!

Value Breakdown: I received 9 items in this month’s box (not including the October calendar page and gift tags). The items I did find in the store (cards and similar notepads) totaled $49.00, well over the subscription box total. The other items are not found in the store, but for $19.99, you will absolutely not be disappointed!
