A6 Sakura Pink Notebook

This thick notebook is my favorite color of pale pink and is filled with pages and pages of blank paper. The paper itself feels very delicate and is semi-sheer. I feel quite fancy writing on it! As a side note, these sheets also make for incredible blotting papers.

Sakura Stickers

These stickers just feel like springtime. They are different sakura blossoms on backgrounds of blue and pink, and they have a wonderful texture.

Pink Flower Washi Tape 

Washi tape is something I tend to expect from Japanese stationary subscriptions so I was happy to see such a pretty pink roll included in this month’s box. It is a soft abstract flower pattern that is perfect for springtime letter writing or a host of other creative uses.

Signo Pink Ball Pen

I am loving this pink theme. This pretty pen has a very fine 0.38 tip, which makes it perfect for super sharp scribbles or notes.

Kimono Accessories Mini Card

This cute little mini card has illustrations of traditional kimono accessories. It is a perfect little notecard to send a sweet note to a girlfriend.

Girl & Sakura Art Print 

This is one of my favorite things from this box because I love art prints. The colors used on this one really speak to me. I love the red gloves and yellow hooded coat against the clusters of pink blossoms. It reminds me of those spring days where everything is indeed starting to bloom, but the wind is still blowing and there can still be a chill in the air.

Self-Inking Sakura Stamp

Finally, we received a small and bright pink sakura blossom stamp. It is the perfect way to complete your next springtime letter. Be careful not to press down too hard, or you might end up with a plum blossom instead of a true sakura!

Verdict: Zakka Kit was so pink and flowery this month. These are two of my favorite things so I was quite pleased. The lovely pink notepad now lives on my desk at all times, for my note scribbling and face blotting convenience! I use the cute little stamp to check off tasks as done on my ongoing to-do list and my new pink pen fits right in too! The art print is small enough to enjoy at work as well (I placed it on a nearby wall with my cute washi tape!), so most of these items will be hanging out with me in the office instead of going home.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. Great review, and I’m so glad MSA is reviewing this box again! I’ve been watching it for a long time and finally subscribed this week for the vintage box coming in May. Value is never great, but I think this company is serious about curating a beautiful box.

    • I love this one myself! Super happy to see it again. 🙂

  2. The pink theme & flowers were to celebrate Cherry Blossom season in April.
