Rag Tag Box is a monthly craft and ephemera box. They include all sorts of things and a cross stitch project each month based on a theme that could be fun, scary, sci-fi, or movie related. They offer a few different options including paper crafts, stitchy mini, or full size and prices start at $15.00. They also have a shop online where you can buy projects or downloadable projects. I went for the full sized box. The theme for February is Sugar Skulls.
The box that this one comes in is like a small pizza box. It is all wrapped up with tissue inside and the info card is taped on the top. It gives you a basic breakdown of all the fun things you will find inside.
First out of the bac was a large striped envelope. Inside that was a collection of goodies. There are two paper straws, a purple gel pen, a flag clip, which is that squarish thing above the pen, a mini eraser, a mini notebook, and two sticker sheets with various circle stickers on them.
Next up is a nail file. Both the skull and the black side are files and it’s about half an inch think.
This photo shows some of the paper products included. There is a bookmark, 2 mini notecards with envelopes, and a code to get a discount off your purchase on their site.
Near the bottom of the box is 5′ of twine, a paper doily, 2 colouring pages, and a clothes pin.
The last item is the cross-stitch kit for this month. It is a Sugar Skull and as you can see it includes everything you need to do it except scissors to cut your threads. I am almost done my Death Star from the other month and they work up nicely. The kit was the main reason I wanted the box and I have been happy with them so far. They are never very big or difficult and sometimes you just want a simple project that takes a few hours or fits in your bag.
There is no way I could value this box but I am pretty sure I’m going to love it! I had been looking for something crafty for myself since Embellished Boxes seem to have imploded and this is it. If you are thinking this may be something you’d like next month’s theme is Totally 80’s. You can visit their site by clicking here.
