Confetti Heart Push Pins 

I use push pins a lot to hang up pictures at work or home and get excited about colorful ones. When I saw these, I just adored them! I received 9 pastel pink heart push pins with a gold outline. I was disappointed to not find these online to see if I can get more.

American Crafts Knock Outs Mini Punch, .375 inches 

I love punch tools like these. I own several circles of different sizes to make my own gift tags and a snowflake one. But I have never owned one so teeny tiny! It came in a bright pink and though small, is pretty hard to punch. I put a piece of paper to see what size it punched out, as shown in the last image above. I think this is perfect for confetti, should I ever desire to have millions of pieces of paper for something. Either way, it’s a cool inclusion and a great crafting tool to have as I never know what my future holds for projects.

Countryside Flower Floral Pencil Pouch – Retail Value $7.87

Pencil pouches are great when we receive markers or pens with this subscription, so I was pleased to see a pouch in this month’s box. It is sweet, with red flowers all around. It is made of canvas and uses a zipper to keep it closed, protecting the contents inside. The inside of the bag is my favorite, bright pink with polka dots. It’s not a real big bag but is just perfect for the 5 markers we received this month.

Fortune Teller Paper

Oh, man! Talk about nostalgic! These were so cool to see. Now, I have an 8-year-old daughter who has seen these at school and has tried making them through YouTube and had to seek my help. So it didn’t take much for me to get going on folding this.

First, corner to corner.

Then corner to another corner to make an “X” in the creases.

Then, I took each corner and folded it to the middle of my “X” crease.

I flipped it over and folded the corners down to the center again.

Galaxy Markers – Get a pack of 5 (different colors) for $9.09

This month’s box included 5 galaxy markers. I received some of these in my September box and I love them. The color is so rich, like paint pens, but they are just regular markers. I got black, red, light pink, glittery pink and white. I was so disappointed to open my box and see the red cap was off, which is why its so dried out in the image where I tested it out above. Either way, I got 4 pretty awesome markers. I hope I get more in future boxes in different colors.  I love that the white writes over the black!

Valentine Stickers

So this last item didn’t have a label or anything indicating what they are called or who they are by, and Googling Valentine’s Day Stickers small white box didn’t yield any results that matched my product. When I first opened the box, I was pretty stoked to see that there was an assortment in not only the design but the shapes of the stickers. There are also so many—a total of 38 stickers!!! These will be used to close up Valentine’s day cards at the kid’s school party.

Verdict: Busy Bee is a subscription that sends a lot of materials, tools, and items for crafting projects. Being in the month of love, I was not surprised to receive a lot of Valentine’s Day related items and a lot of things in pink and red. I am excited to prepare some Valentines Day cards for school this year using a lot of our materials in this month’s box.

The Wrap Up:

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

LIMITED TIME DEAL: Use code VDAY19 to save 15% off your first box!

Value Breakdown: I received 8 items this month and could not find the value of all the items online, and a few that I did find were unfortunately discontinued. Since this box costs $39.90, each item is worth approximately $4.99 each.

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. Almost every stationary box I find is too overpriced. I have seen many of these items at local stores or online for less than $2.

  2. Hi. I wanted to let you know that the stickers you posted as such: “Sticko Classic Mason Jar Love Stickers – Retail Value $7.70” that I have got the exact same kind at Walmart for $1.97. I am very surprised to find this extremely high price you posted here. But then again, I did buy these last year (and still have quite a few of them), so perhaps the reason it is high priced now is because they are not available in stores? All and all, though, this seems like a fun package!

  3. LOVE LOVE this box….I would have been tickled to get it…!
