Paper & Pen April 2016

Paper & Pen is a monthly subscription box that promises to send out 3-4 paper goods and supplies each month.  They pick items from around the globe and send those unique items to you.  Boxes start at $20 a month but go down with longer plans.  Shockingly for me, shipping is free!  Let’s see what they sent out!

This subscription ships in a bubble mailer.  Inside of that is this nicely wrapped package.

Dessi Designs Triangle Print Notebook-$4.60

The only thing that would make getting a new notebook better is if this was lined. This bold print is very fun and I can’t wait to use it.  My co-workers are used to my odd notebooks and I just freaking love getting more of them!!

Check-it Vivid Icon Adhesive Flags-?

So I was able to find these on a website, however Google Translate let me down and didn’t translate the price so I can’t do a conversion because I have no idea what currency they were in.  Moving on…..I love these!!!!!!  There are few things in the world I like more that sticky notes and these bright flags with their cute little pictures on the side are a great addition to my collection.

Beetle Ink Co. Hand Drawn Succulent Stickers-$7.89

These hand drawn stickers are from an Etsy shop and this is the House Plant Sticker pack.  These are super fun and I hope the people who I will send them to will enjoy them as much as I do.

Stripe and Polka Dot Mechanical Pencils-$1.00 each

So lately I’ve rediscovered the joy of writing with a pencil.  There is just something so fluid and easy about writing with them and if I can keep these out of the hands of the girls they will join my large writing utensil assortment.

I’m really impressed with this box.  There is not a ton of stuff in it but that was made clear in their info.  The value for this month was $14.49 plus the sticky notes.  That is a little low I feel but I’m hoping this month was just an anomoly.  I like that some of the products are from smaller companies and Etsy companies.  It shows that they really do search out interesting items instead of just buying lots off Amazon.
