Q: Is it too late to have the first box delivered before christmas?Asked by Cj W., December 2019
Not if you are in the U.S.! U.S. orders by 12/19 should arrive in time for Christmas!
International orders can not be guaranteed for Christmas Delivery after 12/7, but we'll get it shipped as soon as we can get it out the door, so it will get there as soon as possible.
Love the boxes
It was fun. I especially enjoyed having 2 items to do as the first can always be rough on a new skill
I thoroughly enjoyed making this project. I can't wait to see what comes next.
This month’s crate was serendipitous. For the past few months I’ve been looking online for quilling kits. And, surprise, the crate contained a quilling kit. It’s like you read my mind. Thank you. Hint: I’m also interested in wood burning, wood carving and embroidery. Just to name a few.
Great gift idea for all ages. Learned new skills, strengthened present know-how and inspired new projects
The box is interesting, crafty, and well put-together: a wood burner, some simple sample patterns, carbon paper to transfer, and some pieces of wood to practice on. Even the box itself is a nice unfinished wood that can be used as a surface. That being said, it felt a little light for the price.
Not worth price good idea not worth the products thank you
the hinges on the box were broken. :( i was so excited when i saw it and then i pulled it out and it fell apart. i was really bummed.
Oh no, Amy! We've never had that happen! We will get you a new box out right away by Priority Mail, along with a little gift to help make up for your disappointment. ~ Melanie, Vice-President, Craftsman Crate
I got my first box and I'm not even sure what the point of it is or what it even makes. It's a bunch of tiny circles to link together.. I'm not seeing much interest in working on it.
I just got my fifth box in the mail yesterday and I have to say that this one knocked it out of the park for me! I understand that not all boxes are going to be hits, but with that in mind this kit gets me to step out of my box and learn new things that I otherwise would have never tried. If you want to try new things and learn new crafting skills this box will be perfect for you. I have a very curious mind and always want to try new things, this box allows me to do that without having to break the bank by purchasing all of the tools and what-nots needed for a new craft just for me to discover it's not really for me.
