The Paper Gang | August Box




If you read my July post, you'll know I bought myself the August Paper Gang box as well. This was before I knew what the theme was, which in this case was marbled. My second box arrived a lot faster than box one. From memory it was just under a week after it was despatched so that was a bonus. In honesty I wasn't going to do this post because I was a bit disappointed by the sparse contents of August's box but at the same time it gives you an honest look at what was inside...

As you can see, August's box only contained four items. Four. I was surprised at how few things were included to be honest. In saying that, with the exception of the calendar page I was mostly satisfied with the contents. The main item this month was the hardback, marbled notebook with rose gold detailing. You can't see from this picture but the pages actually have rose gold edging which is actually really freakin' pretty. I love it. This notebook's lined too so I will definitely find a use for it. We also received some copper washi tape which I love and will definitely use. I did have a roll of copper tape and used it all up so this one will meet a similar fate. Lastly there was another card which I will definitely use and the September calendar page. The calendar pages are the least useful for me and I imagine perhaps other people too. Unless they were doing a calendar page with every box from the beginning of the year, I'm not entirely sure. 

Overall I was a bit disappointed with the August box. It wasn't terrible by any means, it just wasn't amazing and I didn't feel like I was getting my money's worth. I think if you want a decent stationery themed subscription box, you're better off going for something like Happy Mail which, while expensive is usually much better value for money. Their cards are always beautifully designed too.

-Have you signed up to a stationery subscription box before? What did you think of it?
