Paper & Pen May 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 plain bubble mailer.  Inside that there is a neatly wrapped package, sealed with a label sticker.

Everything I found inside the wrapping. Looks like a pretty grouping of items.  The theme is Natural and I can see where that comes in.

Hamutelet Handbound Printed Notebook-$8.76

This is a beautiful notebook.  The pages are blank and cram coloured, while the cover is a heavy kraft paper.  I do prefer a lined book but since this one is very delicate and feminine I’ll put it to use.

Floral Retractable Pens-$1.00 x 2

These are a fine point, blue ink pen.  They say Your Happy Story on the clip, and Happy on the body of them.  They write easily and smoothly.  These will be put to use.

Natural Wood Erasable Pens-$1.00 x 2

These are cool.  They look like a pencil but they are erasable pens! I enjoy a good erasable pen and these are cute to boot.  They also write smoothly and are a black ink that seems more like a gel then an ink.

Floral Mini Clothespins-$0.88 x 2

These little guys are adorable but very useless for anything beyond being decorative.  I use them to hold papers onto my calendar.

I’ve been happy 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 is $14.52.  That is a little low I feel but I’m still hoping for the values to go up.  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.
