Every box will also include a roll of washi tape and paper straws themed to the month’s event(s).

Let’s see what’s in the December 2016 HandCrate box!
Everything was shipped in a small brown box adorned with decorative tape. As you can see, it got a little beat up on its journey though the mail system, but thankfully the contents all remained in tact. 🙂
A peek inside!
A small card listed the featured shops in December’s box and revealed the next theme — Valentine’s Day.
2017 Gold Glitter Crown – This sparkly tie-on crown is the perfect accessory for ringing in the new year. It was handmade using premium paper cardstock covered in gold glitter and finished with black satin ribbon.
Bubble Kingdoms Champagne Bubbles – While not exactly a handcrafted item, this bottle of “champagne bubbles” is still a fun addition to the box. I’m sure my kiddos will enjoy blowing these all over the house tonight. 😉
New Year’s Greeting Card – Adoramapix makes these pretty greeting cards in Brooklyn, NY using premium quality linen paper with envelopes to match. The back of the card is blank, allowing for plenty of space to write your personal message.
2017 Paper Confetti – This “2017” confetti is made with multi-colored/patterned cardstock and is perfect for decorating tables or throwing in the air to celebrate the new year!
Washi Tape – Every box comes with a new roll of washi tape. December’s washi featured a black & gold striped pattern that fit the color scheme of the other New Year’s themed items.
Paper Straws – Also included in every box are a set of paper straws to use for the upcoming holiday/celebration. This month’s selection featured solid metallic silver, white & gold metallic stripes, and gold stars on a white background. Cute!
I’m all about holiday-related themes/boxes, so it’s no surprise that I really enjoyed my first HandCrate. 🙂 There was a fun little mix of items and I love that they feature small businesses/crafters. It’s also totally affordable too at just $13/month! — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “FIRSTOFF5“!
