A monthly craft box for tweens, teens & adults who want to make gifts & keepsake projects while learning new crafting skills. Kits feature artisan quality tools with an emphasis on natural materials, earth awareness and cultural themes. Clear instructions with real photos simplify steps for beginners while encouraging creativity and adaptations.
This month, you'll craft a dozen cute no-sew and non-edible fortune cookies out of a variety of colorful batik fabrics. Then write and insert your own custom fortunes. Lastly, you'll decoupage a small ceramic tray using leftover fabric to hold your cookies. These fortune cookies are re-usable so that you can theme the messages for any occasion. Our lesson covers the origin of fortune cookies. Hint, it's not where you think!
Order by February 15th to get this box!
Q: Please tell me you make or know of something like this for 5 to 8 year olds 😭Asked by Cameron P., January 2022
Sorry, we don’t offer any subscriptions for this age group. Maybe Green Kids Crafts?
Q: I’ve been trying to find out when my November box will ship since it hasn’t yet and can’t get a response to any of my emailsAsked by Shawndell B., December 2020
I sent you an email regarding your specific order. Due to the flood of holiday related requests and questions plus increased product demand, our customer service email response time is a bit slower than usual. We are getting to each person as quickly as possible! Thank you for your patience while we get through this crazy busy time of year. There are also some FAQ's on the Terra Create website that may answer common customer service questions.
Q: Please ship to Canada 🥺Asked by Shadi D., December 2020
We would love to be able to supply our Canadian friends with craft kits. However, the shipping costs are enormous and our research has shown that the majority of potential customers would not be willing to pay $18 to $30 per month for shipping. As a small, but growing company, we're not yet in a tier where we could qualify for bulk rates to Canada. Perhaps someday we'll get there! Thanks for your interest in Terra Create.
Q: Is the current box a holiday box or the giving tree craft? Asked by Brooke H., October 2020
When you checkout, you have the option to ship immediately (5 biz days) or delay 1st shipment until December as a holiday gift. Gratitude Trees are shipping now for new subscribers. If you delay 1st shipment until December, it will be a different 1st kit. Most likely hot cocoa candles. Or something else winter, but not Christmas themed. Please note that we can not guarantee specific kits with subscriptions. Covid has increased delays with suppliers and reduced availability of some supplies. As a result, we may substitute another, but equally awesome craft kit to get orders out on time.
Lots of fun for a date night in. We enjoyed it.
This will be a gift for my 10 year old for Christmas so she hasn’t done the craft yet, but when I opened the box to check it all out I was blown away by the amazing smell! She received the hot cocoa candle making set and I know she is going to love this!!
I was very impressed by the speedy shipping and how well packed the box was. I’m really looking forward to doing this with my daughter!!
My two girls 12 and 14 love this box and so do I. The activities are perfect for their age. Much more advanced than kids craft kits. Also each idea is so unique that many of the crafts are brand new to these seasoned crafters. As a mom I love how I can get a single subscription which included enough supplies for two people. I can't say enough how wonderful Terra Create is. Supplies are generous and unique. Directions are detailed and readable with lots of pictures. Favorites have included the October Halloween zen sandbox and the scented candles. This would be enjoyed by adults as well as teens.
I am 73, a lifelong crafter who was in a rut. I have done some of these alone, some with my 9 year old granddaughter (sometimes with "help" from her 5 year old brother). I have learned new skills, and the children have enjoyed them and their results have been good enough to display or give as gifts. The kits are well planned and organized, the instructions are clear and leave room for individual creativity, and we have had a great time doing them. The extra educational information in each kit is engaging, and the 9-year old is especially interested in it. The "final products" have been every bit as presentable as the items in kits marketed for adults only. I wholeheartedly recommend this kit for crafters of any age, and think it would be especially appropriate for family projects or for adult beginning crafters,
My 9 year old loves these. The projects are unique and good quality, the instructions are easy to follow, and the owner is very responsive. Better than other crates we've tried.
This is a worthwhile quality product. The direction booklet is excellent- well designEd and written. The projects could work for most ages, even adults. My 11 and 13 year olds can execute these well. The materials are quality and the projects are useful and/or beautiful.
We received our first box this month. We had enough materials to make 4 windchimes - not just 2! Beautiful craft - great quality items. My daughter and I had so much fun with this one and are looking forward to many more!
I got the monthly box 'for two' for my daughter and me. We just did the wind chimes this weekend and absolutely loved it. We learned how to do something new and enjoyed doing it. And our creations turned out beautiful. My husband will be hanging them outside today. It's a plus that all three of us really love wind chimes. Looking forward to our next box!
My daughter is 11 and we just did our first Terra Crate. It was a perfect kit for us to do together. I'd also recommend this for a friend's crafting night to do as a group (one kit per person). There were just enough supplies and the directions were written in an open-ended way so that both of us achieved very different results (personalized). Thanks for an evening of fun!
Bought this for my daughter and i to do. Chose the for two people... we got enough stuff for four people to make. Everything was very well put together and we had a lot of fun. we are excited for the next box and wish we could order some of your past boxes while we wait !
