Crafty Creatives January Box

I've finally had time to play with my lovely Crafty Creatives box! I signed up to this after giving up on Glossy Box, this is a monthly subscription box but you get a fab set with a crafty theme. Each month you receive a kit which allows you to try out a craft, this really appealed to me as I love trying new crafts and am always ready to turn my hand to something different, this way I don't have to by an entire kit and I can explore things I might not otherwise consider.

It comes in a plain card box, with your kit inside and a little description of what it is and how to use it. This month was a marbling kit, which got me very excited as I've not done marbling since I was in middle school and it's definitely not something I would have thought to experiment with.

In the kit you get these mini paints, liquid to use with the paints, some cards, a ceramic heart charm and a couple of small pieces of fabric. It's a good start but I do feel they were a little tight with how many cards they provided, it also would have been nice to get an extra couple of charms.

This was such a fun craft to play with! All you need to do is fill a tub with the liquid, then drop dots of paint onto the surface, you can use a toothpick to swirl the paint into whatever pattern you like and play around with different colours. When you're happy with the pattern, gently lower your paper onto the surface and you have a fab pattern when you peel it back off, leave to dry and you're left with really cool personalised note cards!

My husband and I had a lot of fun playing with this and ended up printing onto plain paper once the card provided ran out, my favourite thing to print was the ceramic heart though, I love how it turned out!

I'd say my first box was quite a success, I'm really looking forward to seeing which craft I get to play with this month now! Check out the Crafty Creatives website if you'd like to learn more about them :)
