Paper & Pen June 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 one ships in a plain brown mailer so I never bother taking pictures of it.  Inside that we have this neatly wrapped little present.

Once we open that up we get to see our presents for the month. Looks good! Sadly this month they dont have the items listed yet on the website so I have to guess as I go.

Night Owl Paper Crafts Mini Notebook-$8.00

This cute little notepad is made from recycled paper.  The cover is sustainably harvested Birch.  It has 75 pages and as you can see they are unlined.  I love notepads and hide them away from my children who will scribble on each page and ruin everything.

Plan d Checklist Pad

I cannot give you a price for this because for the life of me I don’t have a clue what currency the page I can find it on is in.  This seems more like pages you would stick outside of a box because it has columns for a date, contents and checking it off.  I’ll find some use for it though.

Zebra Mechanical Pencil-$0.58 x 2

I have some of these pencils that I have bought myself and they are great.  They write well and the leads don’t break easily.  They almost look like a real pencil which is cool too!

Teardrop Shaped Paperclips-$0.15 x 4

Paperclips make me almost as happy as paper itself.  The only issue I have is that I want to use fancy ones like this on papers I won’t have to give to someone else who won’t care.

DKG Pencil Case

This is a great little case!  It is made of pleather and has a zippered top. I once again can’t value it as the website is in another language and once I translate it, it gets confused when I search in English.  It will hold quite a few writing utensils and looks adult and professional, which would be a first for me…..

I’ve been happy with this box.  There is not a ton of stuff in it but that was made clear in their info.  I am not going to value the box this month as two of the item are impossible for me to guess at.  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.
