I received my second helping of the stationery subscription box (papergang), yesterday but I had to wait 24 hours until I could tear the box open. I’m sure most of you can understand the level of self-control I had to reach in order to wait.
Again, no – this blogpost is not sponsored by papergang, or anybody actually.
This is simply the Tuesday morning confessions of a stationery lover!
Papergang is (according to their Instagram page) a monthly subscription box by Ohh Deer, for paper lovers. I subscribed to their monthly box some time in August, before the August box was issued and what I will be reviewing today is the September box. Before even getting into the review, I must say what I love most about this subscription box is that it comes in a slim box that the post man can just slip through your post-box and the packaging is always extremely eye-catching, papergang post sure does brighten up my day.
Giftwrap: animals in party hats. In other words, the coolest giftwrap you can find
Planner: blue ombre weekly planner ‘my week’.
Printed Calendar: for the month of October
Greeting Card: a card which reads ‘Its your birthday’ with cute birdies all over.
Greeting Card: which reads ‘Hedge Hugging’, I adore this as it gives you the option of giving this to a friend for any occasion.
Sticky Notes Pad: it reads, ‘lets get this shit done’.
A little more about the hands behind the box. The accessories are designed and illustrated by independent UK artists with the funkiest designs I have seen on stationery, which I think gives the box a unique touch.
Despite claiming to love stationery, I have actually never bought a planner before because, well I guess I’d never found one which suited me. The planner in this month’s box is a whole other story.
Firstly the turquoise ombre cover is gorgeous but other than that, I was sold by the plastic cover around the planner – which has a zip at the back.
It is basically a planner with a built-in pencil case *inserts heart eyes emoji*. Of course I had to show you the stationery inception in action.
The box also includes greeting cards that tie-in with the animal theme of the box.
The review would be almost incomplete if I didn’t introduce you to Drew. When I received by first box last month – this was the first thing that popped out –
Drew is an iron on patch, and leader of the papergang. If you’ve figured out anything about me by now, then you’ll know just how adorable I think this idea is. A cute iron-on patch to initiate membership for me, gives the entire connection a personal touch.
I thoroughly love all the items in this months box and I would definitely recommend you to subscribe to the box to. The contents card totals the contents of the box to just over £20, the box is sold for £9.95.
They do ship to most countries, if where you live is not on their list, you can also request for them to add it on.
There you have it, my Tuesday blue’s.
See how I customised a plain old notebook using last months papergang packaging and washi tape here.
I hope you have a wonderful week ahead,
