My company had the rare opportunity to apart of a curated box of planner goodies and we couldn't pass it up. The seller behind the entire concept is MadewithSouthernLuv. You can find her on Etsy and her shop feature a wide variety of stickers and die cuts in a wide selection. She came up with the name Ebony Queen Box which I just adore and the very first box is a play off the box name and color palette. As a contributor, I was sent a box. I was super excited to receive mine and finally see what everyone contributed. Seeing it in bits and pieces is great but seeing it as a whole is amazing. So enough chit chat and let's get into the unboxing of the very first box of the Ebony Queen Box.
The box feature a variety of sticker sheets, washi tape samples, bookmarks, paper, TN books, die cuts and charms. And the retail price for this box was $30 I believe. Well worth it since sticker sample sheets and sticker kits can range from $3- $16 depending the seller. TN booklets can cost $3 and up depending the on the seller.So you get the drift. So let's dive into the box.
The first small items in the box are 4 samples of washi tape in gold and white. Perfect to putting in a zipper pocket of your planner or inside the secretarial pocket of your planner for easy use.
The next item is one of many die cuts included in the box. It features a cute naturalista dolls with her planner, pen and phone. Love her. She's by Cocos Vision with u n Mind.
