Embellished Boxes February 2015

Embellished Boxes is a monthly box that sends you what you need to create two crafts. They focus on using items that you have around your home or that are inexpensive to purchase.  You get instructions and everything you need to complete the two projects. Subscriptions are $16.05 a month including shipping.  Even better is that Embellished is a Canadian company.  I have not been disappointed in any of the projects they’ve sent me so far.

These boxes always come nicely wrapped.  You can’t see anything when you open it up but it smelled quite strong this month.

The second look didn’t give me much more to go on, but it sure seemed Valentine’s themed.

Each box comes with a materials card detailing everything you can find in the box and an instruction sheet.  Each project only has three steps to completion. This month we get to make a soy candle and candy melts!

FOr the candle you get a jar, wax pellets, a wick, a colour cube, and fragrance.  In a weird twist the scent is a rhubarb strawberry scent, and I’m sure once it’s in the wax and all set up it will be fine, but the concentrated smell is a bit “skunky” if you know what I mean……

For the candy melts we get a heart shaped chocolate mold and pink, red, and brown candy discs.  I have been wanting to give chocolate making a go for a bit now so I’m happy to get these.

Even though this shipped a little late to use for Valentine’s both are still good projects.  I have unfortunately fallen behind a bit on getting these crafts done in the last few months so I have to find a few minutes and whip them up.  None have required a huge time commitment and most so far have been new skills for me, which is nice.
