My Paper Box Review February 2019: Grand Box

I recently reviewed the Mini Box from My Paper Box and I also received the Grand Box. I wanted to share it with you all so you can run and get it because it’s absolutely adorable! Get ready for some cuteness overload but with a very useful side!

This month the My Paper Box theme is mint green and it can’t be any more appropriate for Spring approaching and Saint Patrick’s day, but at the same time is totally versatile and you’ll be able to use these paper goods throughout the year.

The packaging was on point as usual and the colors soft and relaxing, perfect for this season.

Details: My Paper Box comes in two sizes, one mini box mailed in an envelope where you get 3 note pads, and that costs $10 per month, and the grand subscription box, the one I’ll be sharing with you today, is $28 per month.

From the My Paper Box website, the grand subscription is described as follows: “Filled with personalized stationery products. Each month there will be a new theme with products from notepads to thank you cards! Your Paper Box will arrive before the beginning of the next month. Just in time for you to enjoy your new stationery set for the month. Everything will be customized just for you!”

As soon as we open it we see a greeting that says “We’re mint to be friends” on the inside lid which is super cute and off to a great start, and inside the package we have a welcome card with our name on it. Everything is tucked inside a black and white polka-dot tissue paper.

Right on top we find 4 greeting cards, all with their respective envelopes and packed in a clear baggie. Two envelopes are white and two are mint colored. The quotes are super adorable and they all play with the word “mint” as you can see.

Next up we find a set of card stock note cards that say “you are mint to do great things” and they’re attached by two small binder clips. We got 10 of these in a thick semi glossy paper.

We also got a set of 6 circle labels or seals that have a different saying on each, and a set of bigger seals with scalloped borders with my name and city on it.

Next we got a desk calendar, like last month, but of course with March’s theme. On one side we have a “you’re mint to do great things” quote and on the other my name and the monthly calendar. Love to be able to switch it up each month. I don’t know if this is a feature that we’d get every month but so far I’ve gotten it and love it.

We also got a glitter gel pen in emerald green and I am in love with it. Perfect to write notes and lists and the color is spot on! This month we also received a notepad, white with lined paper with my name and a mint image on top.

Inserts: We received two inserts in two sizes this month. A pocket/a6 insert with a bill tracker, and the cover has lemons and says “When life gives you lemons you pay bills” #adulting right?

The second insert is bigger, it fits in a standard traveler’s notebook or cahier size. But you don’t have to use it in a traveler’s notebook, it can also fit in your purse or regular planner. In the front it says “things I mint to do”. Inside we have different layouts, a to do list, checklists, note pages.

My Paper Box Review February 2019 – Final Thoughts

My Paper Box is an amazing stationary subscription box. You get greeting cards to send out to friends, note cards to add to packages or gifts, note pads to have on top of your counter or desk, a desk calendar, notebooks to add to your current planning system, labels and stickers, and the occasional pen and other accessories. I love that each month it varies and you don’t get the same items month to month, and if you sign up for the mini sub you get 3 completely different notepads, not any of them gets repeated from the grand box. The February Grand Box is definitely a hit!
