HandCrate: A Festive Subscription Box Made by Crafters/Artists

I’ve been busy launching my subscription box, HandCrate !  This monthly, seasonal subscription box includes various crafts and samples from small handcrafting businesses.  For only $13/month with free shipping, we already have 15 boxes going out for our Halloween box!

Each monthly box always includes a greeting card, confetti, a banner, washi tape, and paper straws to match the holiday.  🙂   Plus other fantastic goodies handcrafted with love.

Sneak Peek Into Halloween Box

The excitement around the project is really exploding, and the best part is the box helps promote small crafting businesses.  Seasonal sales can become a speedbump for some etsy shop owners during the down months, but by adding a small sample to HandCrate, there’s a good chance of drumming up some more business!

This will be the only post I do on PaperCraneWishes.com about the project, but you can check out the HandCrate blog through the website.  I am excited to start writing some blog posts about managing your craft business, pitfalls, and what I’ve done to overcome some of my biggest challenges running a shop.  I will also be doing Q&As with featured artists about their experiences as business owners.

I should be getting close to doing some more blog posts on this site.  🙂  I am just awaiting the arrival of my new Canon Rebel camera!   I am very excited to give a clear window of my world to you fine readers.  🙂  Stay tuned for better photos and more exciting DIY craft projects to amp up any of your celebratory events.

Thanks for following and as always, happy crafting!!!
