My Greeting Box is a monthly subscription box filled with card making supplies delivered straight to your door. Each month you will receive everything you need to make fun and special cards including materials, tools, technique tutorials and inspirational designs.
The box arrived via royal mail in a letter box size package so no need to worry about being in to receive. First impressions were that there were a lot of items in the box and this was because it included the starter pack as well as that month’s card making kit.

Making the cards:
My first impression was that it would be quite easy to follow the instructions as they had diagrams etc. However when it came to making the cards I did struggle to understand some of the steps, I would say they are aimed at an adult rather than a child. So whilst following the steps and referring back to the card making tip card I began making the them. I would say it took roughly an hour to make one card which is quite time consuming so make sure to set a designated time to sit down and complete the task. I also found it was quite messy due to the stamps not fitting on the ink pad and then trying not to smudge it once I have stamped on the card. It takes great concentration!
This month’s theme was ‘Out of the world’ so aliens and monsters, the cards would be good for a young boy or anyone that has an interest in aliens. I would have preferred it to have been a more versatile theme as I don’t really have anyone to gift the cards to. That said it is a very fun concept and my thoughts are purely due to my age group. Maybe an idea would be to have a couple of options on the subscription so that they are suited to different genders and ages via your selection?
Another suggestion could be to select an occasion pack such as Birthday, Anniversary, Get Well soon and so on? These could even be added as an extra pack to be shipped alongside your subscription.

I think the concept of this box is great, I myself enjoy card making and was looking forward to this box. It gives you something to look forward to in the post every month and is a great activity to be creative. Personally I think there could be some improvements but the value is definitely there in the box and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for My Greeting Box!
