Each month, you will receive a collection of carefully-curated funny (sometimes snarky) greeting cards and stationery items, which the designer describes as “brutally honest, yet insanely loveable!” I couldn’t agree more!

Flair & Paper November 2018 notecards

Here are the five Flair & Paper greeting cards we received this month!

Flair & Paper November 2018 its not you notecard

It’s Not You. It’s Me. Just Kidding. It’s Totally You Greeting Card – Retail Value $4.00

Immediately we get some sass and I just love it! The colors in this card are so fall-y in mustard and wine.

As always, the card is blank on the inside for your perfect message or picture. It is paired with a reddish brown A-style envelope and measures at 5 ½ by 4 ½ inches.

Flair & Paper November 2018 human notecard

You’re My Favorite Human Greeting Card – Retail Value $4.00

I love this card the most this month! It’s simple and so me; I tell my husband he is my favorite person all the time, so this is right up my alley. The whole card has my favorite styles: two fonts, sketch style font, and a teeny tiny heart.

The horizontal card measures at 4 ½ inches by 5 ½ inches and is paired with a reddish-brown A-style envelope.

Flair & Paper November 2018 happy birthday notecard

Happy Birthday You Will Always Be Older Than Me Card – Estimated Value $4.00 (Based on all the cards in the Flair & Paper online store)

Flair & Paper always tries to include a birthday card in their monthly subscription. This one is really pretty with fall leaves around the borders. It’s also pretty funny with the snark below. There are multiple people I could send this card to that would make the recipient laugh.

This blank card is paired with the reddish-brown A-style envelope and measures 5 ½ inches by 4 ½. I was unable to find this exact card online.

Flair & Paper November 2018 thankful envelope

Thankful for You Card – Estimated Value $4.00 (Based on all the cards in the Flair & Paper online store)

This card falls right into the Thanksgiving theme and is really pretty with the fall foliage all around the message.

I love the orange A-style envelope this card is paired with; it is so bright and pretty. The card measures at 4 ½ inches by 5 ½ inches. I was unable to find this exact card online.

Flair & Paper November 2018 always thankful notecard

There Is Always Something To Be Grateful For. Like Wine Card – Estimated Value $4.00 (Based on all the cards in the Flair & Paper online store)

This was my least favorite card in the bunch. While I liked the message, I don’t favor the font or the wheat-like design.

This card is paired with a yellow A-style envelope and measures at 5 ½ inches by 4 ½ inches. I was also unable to find this card in the online store.

Flair & Paper November 2018 tea towel

Gather & Give Thanks Tea Towel

This was the first time I have received a tea towel in my Flair & Paper subscription, and though it goes with the theme, it doesn’t go with Flair & Paper. It is pretty and is made of a nice cloth, with the fall foliage design.

It’s also pretty big. The image above is just folded out but it is still in half.

This was also a first for me in my Flair & Paper subscription. It’s a tag for a bottle of wine. You can use it to dress it up for your Thanksgiving feast in just a few weeks!

Mini Chalkboard

This was a cute little inclusion! It’s a tiny chalkboard! It has three little legs and stands like an easel. For scale, I put it beside my scissors. As you can see, it is pretty small. For its size, I wish we received at least two of them. Either way, this is a great decoration for the dessert table at Thanksgiving.

Liquid Chalk Pen

The last item we got was this liquid chalk pen, a great pair for our mini chalkboard!

I was a bit bummed, though, when I tested it out. It was so light! I figured I just got a dried out pen and started to wrap up the box and its contents.

Right as I was ready to put this guy away, I noticed the chalk darkened! Good to know it takes a couple of minutes to really show.

Calendar

Flair & Paper always includes a calendar for the current month on all their boxes.

Verdict: I was a little disappointed with my box this month. I wasn’t crazy over receiving a tea towel in a stationery subscription and felt like the wine bottle tag was meh. I would easily trade both for extra mini-chalkboards. I do always enjoy the cards that Flair & Paper delivers – they are always beautiful and make me smile.

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. Where is the “promised retail value of $40?”

  2. Carol, those little chalkboard easels are eight for thirteen dollars on Amazon if you need some more for your holiday table. https://www.amazon.com/UCEC-Chalkboards-Perfect-Wedding-Decoration-Pack/dp/B01I16MYOY?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_4 They’re also available at Etsy if you don’t like Amazon.

    I admit I don’t understand the logic behind including a decorated flour sack towel in a card subscription box. Maybe they’re trying to branch out into other things? On the plus side, the towel is large enough to use as fabric gift wrap for some holiday baked goods (or maybe some note cards from Flair and Paper?)

    • Hi Vanessa!

      Thank you, I will definitely look into these chalk boards (who doesnt love Amazon!?). And you’re probably right, they may be trying out new products but I love your idea of using it to wrap baked goodies.
