Let’s see what’s in the October 2016 Holly Journals box!
Everything was shipped in a small white box with a Holly Journals sticker on top.
A peek inside!
A welcome card revealed the theme of this month’s box — “Falling for October”. It also listed the full contents of the box, as well as the bonus gifts.
The Journal – I absolutely love all things autumn, so I was excited to see this adorable fall-inspired journal! As mentioned earlier, it’s completely handmade and consists of at least 50 2-sided pages of various paper materials.
From the moment you open it up, you know this isn’t your ordinary, run-of-the-mill journal.
Pages of various sizes, colors, and textures are interspersed among autumnal quotes, envelopes, paper bags, and other random do-dads.
There were even library book sign out cards and fall-themed bingo boards (shown a couple photos above).
October Journal Prompts – As promised, there was a helpful list of journal prompts/inspiration to help you get your creative juices flowing.
Pens – Two pens were included — one with white ink and one with black, along with a graphite pencil for sketching.
Dangle Charm – I wasn’t quite sure what this was for when I pulled it out of the box, but I knew that I liked it. 😉 Turns out it’s a dangle charm to hang on your journal (I’m guessing the spiral part?) to give it a little bling. It just screams “autumn” and I love it.
Embellishments – A variety of stickers, labels, paperclips, and tags were provided to add even more color to the pages of your journal.
Bonus Gifts – The bonus items for October were a packet of caramel flavored hot cocoa, as well as three candy sticks in orange, butterscotch, and root beer.
What a fun box! Holly Journals is clearly a great subscription for anyone who enjoys journaling, scrapbooking, or just collecting pretty notebooks. 😉 You can see that a lot of work goes into making each book and the additional items are just the cherry on top. — Remember for a limited time, you can save 10% off for life with coupon code “RB10“!
