I must be honest – I subscribed to this Jam Packed stationery box from The Papery Stationery back in August and while I wanted to do an unboxing video, I actually didn’t know how and I was way too impatient to wait until I learned just to open the box. So, as a compromise, I took photos of each stage of the opening. I was really excited and it took a lot of restraint to actually stop at each point to even take the photo.
I had never subscribed to any boxes before so it was a whole new experience for me. Plus I love stationery so what kind of subscription box could be better? (My fiancé says I really need to start using my notebooks before buying more. I did a count and I have about 15 blank notebooks.)
The Papery stationery subscription boxes are beautiful. Everything in the Bee Box is, as you might have guessed by the name, bee-themed. I didn’t think I was a bee person but this box has changed my mind.
Scroll past the pictures for more information on how to subscribe.
So how much does this box cost?
The Papery has once-off “try before you buy” box options for R595 (about $33) which is what the Bee Box cost me.
I also chose the subscription option where I pay R275 (about $15.30) every month and then receive a box every second month.
The box in the picture above is their October Mental Health stationery box. While I was due to receive this box last month there were a few supplier hiccups so I am still awaiting the arrival of that one.
The Papery has been pretty good with updating me on the status of the delays and my delivery. While I wait, the sneak peeks on social media are driving me bonkers. I’ll definitely do an unboxing when I receive it, though.
*Disclaimer: I was not paid to write this post. I just love this stationery so much. Also, The Papery is based in South Africa and I’m not sure if it does international deliveries
