Aside from having taken these flat lay photos hunched over on a stool and subsequently becoming very hot, bothered and sweaty on a 30°c day, I actually really enjoyed putting this post together; mostly because I think this whole concept is brilliant, current and perfect for fellow bloggers!
The lovely people from The Little Box of Flatlay very kindly sent me their latest subscription box, and although I had no real preconceived ideas about what would be inside the box, I was so pleasantly surprised with the contents of my box and the general aesthetic of the packaging. I really feel as though so much thought has gone in to the creation of these boxes, and I got that immediate overwhelming sense of them being lovingly curated and packaged. Upon arrival, the box itself was adorned with beautiful calligraphy-esque typography, reading ‘flatlay love’, and was sealed with ‘Little Box of Flatlay’ stickers, which I felt were a lovely added touch of personalisation. The contents of the box themselves were encased in a sheet of blush tissue paper and a branded sticker, and were placed in and amongst ribbons of golden craft paper.
I’ll start by briefly mentioning a couple of the highlights from the box for me, and then I’ll insert a list below with all of the items included in the box! By far and away, the copper wire string fairy LED lights are the highlight of the box for me, but I also love the notebook and the unassuming sheet of coral-pink fabric! So, on to everything that’s housed within this lovely little box:
- An ”eat glitter for breakfast & shine all day’ notebook
- Calligraphy postcards reading ‘you got this’, ‘thank you’, ‘go your own way’ and ‘do what you love’
- A bunch of fresh foliage and blush pink roses
- 3 tealight candles
- Star confetti
- A bag of pink, yellow and white paperclips
- A set of copper wire string fairy LED lights
- A sheet of coral-pink fabric
These boxes retail for £12 (excluding the additional £3 for p+p) and because I don’t think you’d find yourself wanting to purchase a box every single month, I think that’s a fairly reasonable price point for an independent company. The one and only fault I can find with this box and something that I would suggest improvement upon is the inclusion of fresh flowers in the box; I think the foliage is perfect, but the roses themselves weren’t in perfect condition and were a little withered so I think faux flowers or dried petals would be more consistent and durable! Aside from that, I’m so impressed with this box and think it’s just so perfect for bloggers who are perpetually looking to switch up their flatlay props and photography backgrounds. I would highly recommend picking one up and supporting this fab company and am so glad I’ve now discovered them!
