Ohh Deer: Colorful Tropics
I have no idea what month this is. (Google says: June?) I get my box late since it's shipping from overseas. I'm not worried about that, but this is at least a summer box. As always, Papergang has online goodies for the box. This is the wallpaper fort the month.
I believe the box is still available for purchase on the Ohh Deer website. It's $26 U.S. Dollars.
There are five item categories included. There's a notepad, greeting cards, stamps, gel pens, and sticker sheets.
The box always has a paper wrapping, that can double as other wrapping paper or as origami (depending on how artsy-fartsy Papergang gets that month). The pamphlet is on top and folds out into one large sheet. It has item descriptions, creator interviews. how-to's, and the origami code.
The designers this month were Sea Creatures, Dan and Sara, in Brighton, UK. The interview with the duo talks about their inspiration for the box, how they got started as a company, their favorite places in Brighton, and podcasts. Their Instagram account is @seecreaturedesign.
A large pad, three gel pens, three stamps, an ink pad, and stickers sheets (seen in the image before and slightly below) were included. They feature colorful prints and nature shapes. The stamps are pretty unique and the ink pad is black. I've used the writing pad but not the rest. I'm trying to get through my previous letter stock for pen-pals before I hit these. But I love the colors and the deign.
There are four blank cards with four different (and colorful) envelope design. I love the layout of the envelops. I don't mind the cards being blank-it's meant to be decorated with the stamps and stickers. The "how-to" for that is on the opposite side of the pamphlet (image way above).
It's hard to pick a favorite design, but these cute little birds inch out the rest. Aren't they adorable?
