Wasn't it just yesterday when we were excited about floral dresses and fresh blooms in the garden with our September, "I Love You Box" ? Now we’re already well into our celebration of sunny January summery days, where has the time gone to?! From sitting under the Christmas tree unwrapping our presents to welcoming the New Year of 2015 time marches on. We've been dying to share the last three lovely "I Love You Box" contents from last year. Over the next few weeks we will reveal our November & December Boxes too - hooray! But enough of whats to come, let’s get back to October and what we do best, stationery. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we loooove personalised stationery!
What better way to finish off the busy year of 2014 with some personalised stationery of your own? Let’s take a peek at what went into October’s box of love:
- 1 x personalised monogram brass 18mm wax sealing tool
- 1 x gold wax sealing stick
- 1 x silver wax sealing stick
- 1 x white wax sealing stick
- 1 x black wax sealing stick
- 1 x silver DL envelope lined with black polka dots
- 1 x gold DL envelope lined with black diagonal stripes
- 1 x black DL envelope
- 1 x kraft DL envelope lined with black diagonal stripes
- 4 x DL white personalised correspondence notecards with custom name and monogram
- 3 x DL white personalised tags with custom name, monogram and black & white bakers twine
- 4 x monogram stickers
When it comes to stationery, old school wins! Each subscriber got one of our favourite things, their very own custom monogrammed wax sealing tool complete with 4 sticks of wax. A wax seal has a simple uncomplicated beauty, pop it on the flap of an envelope or gift to add an extra touch of elegance. We heart monochrome tones; black & white but we couldn’t resist adding in a stick of gold and silver too.
Has someone done something nice for you in the last few days? Did someone help you move, deliver a package, feed your pets while you were away or even make you a cup of coffee when you were having a hectic day at work? You can say “THANK YOU” for the big favours or even the smallest deeds done for you by others. Show your gratitude with one of your awesome personalised notecards. Place your special card in your envelope of choice: polka dots or stripes, and seal it with a wax seal and a kiss (if you’re feeling generous!).
For something that is quick and informal, you can use one of your personalised tags with custom name and monogram. Attach it with the black and white bakers twine to a bunch of flowers or even a slab of chocolate. It’s good to give thanks and treat those around you.
If you’re feeling a little sentimental (and you want to hold onto those cards with your name on for a little longer) – not to worry – keep them in a drawer and save them for a rainy day.
We stuck to the theme and placed our subscribers’ monograms on more paperie goods… STICKERS! Little parcels have never looked better! Add it as a finishing touch to a special package from you to him or her. Or, write a not-so-anonymous note for someone special and stick a sticker on to keep it in place.
We believe in spreading kind words and speaking your mind. Use your personalised goodies to put the cherry on top of any parcel, letter or favour.
Stay tuned for November and December’s reveal posts coming to the blog soon! Santa has definitely paid a visit to the Elephantshoe studio. Happy writing, sealing and giving!
