Confetti Grace Original DIY Box January/February 2021 Review
Confetti Grace always brings a little happiness my way, and I couldn't wait to see what they had in store for their January/February box. I don't own a lot of Valentine's Day decorations, so I was excited to add a heart themed project to my décor! Read below to find out what type of craft we created this month.
Each month we are sent enough supplies to create two projects, two greeting cards, and packaging materials. Along with the supplies, we also received a detailed instruction sheet that includes pictures with tips. This month we were sent supplies to create 2 cookie cutter hangers, 2 hot air balloon cards, and gift boxes with tags.
Project #1: Cookie Cutter Craft
This month's project included a cookie cutter craft. From the picture, I thought we were receiving a piece of barn board to attach it to, but sadly that wasn't the case. While I usually have a crafting buddy for this box, my kids were having a dad date, so I was on my own. They did request I save them the second craft to make later, so they will be completing that later.
To create our cookie cutter craft, we received 6 metal heart-shaped cookie cutters, 2 wooden dowels, twine, greenery, glue, hardware, and patterned paper. All supplies are high quality and in perfect condition. I have to say, there is something about receiving loose craft embellishments that just excites me! I can't wait to get started.
Because this month's craft didn't include any painting, it went fairly fast. To begin, I traced the cookie cutter on the paper of my choosing. Using my CutterBee scissors, I carefully cut around the edges and glued the paper to the cutter. The directions state you can glue first and then add the twine, but I struggled with that order. I found it much easier to add the twine then glue the paper on. I then put a small knot at the top of the twine and let them dry. While my paper was drying, I took my dowels outside and started hammering in the hardware. I then came back inside and added a sprig of greenery using my hot glue gun to the middle. Cute huh?
Project #2 Hot Air Balloon Cards
These are my favorite cards to date, and they were really simple to make. I love the fact that all of the supplies were packaged in an individual bag, and the instructions were so easy to follow. The hardest part about this project is deciding who I should give them to!
Fairly straight forward, I glued the backgrounds onto the cards and followed the picture that was given in the instructions. I folded the hearts in half and created the air balloon, sticking it on with the glue. They lay flat in the envelope, but pop up with a little help. Absolutely darling!
Project #3 Gift Boxes
The last project we received were these white gift boxes with pretty pink tissue paper.
With my boys' project wrapped up for Grandma Cindy, I decided to set mine underneath my Grandma Pat's picture. I'm not a huge fan of hammering a lot of extra holes in our walls, so I felt this was the best option for a seasonal piece like this. How do you think it turned out?
Verdict: Confetti Grace is a really fun subscription. I adore this company, and I love the pretty, customizable, and easy crafts they send every other month. That being said, this month was just not my favorite. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved the greeting cards and the quality of the supplies, but the craft itself just wasn't my cup of tea. Like I said above, the picture had me thinking we were placing the dowel on a barn board, and I would have been all over that, but I just felt this craft was lacking a bit. I'm hoping March/April knocks my socks off! What do you think the theme will be?
Confetti Grace costs $28.95 per bi-monthly delivery, so each gift package averages out to about $14.48. I feel this was a little steep for this month's box, as there just wasn't much to this month's project. I enjoyed the cards and the packaging was beautiful, but I would have liked to see either another smaller craft included for this price.
