Paper & Pen December 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!

The wrapping paper this month was a little beat up but everything inside was nice and safe.

There is a cute little gift bag.  The blue pencil was tucked into it.  Both sides feature the Santa with the check boxes for naughty or nice.

Next up are two rolls of washi tape.  There is a thinner roll of red and kraft paper coloured tape.  The wider roll has the evolution of the bicycle on it in red.  Both are perfect for the season and while I didn’t use them this year I know I’ll get there.

This little happy square is a pencil topper eraser.  I think he is supposed to be a marshmallow and I’m sticking to that.

This is a Christmas tree ornament.  It is quite simple but I love it.  It is beautiful in it’s plainness. It is on my tree right now.

This is a pack of gift tags.  They are self-adhesive so you don’t have to worry about them falling off. I have a huge supply of tags but I think these ones will go on gifts that need a more refined touch.

Last out of the wrapping is this mug of cocoa notepad.  The pages are blank but because they are shaped like the cover they still have a touch of whimsy.

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 couldn’t find prices on most of the stuff this month.  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.
