In the Sprinkles and Booze future, I will be having a ton of Do-It-Yourself greatness and tutorials in the like. I love the idea behind making something from start to finish on your own. There is something magical and wizard-like about saying you’ve created something unique and interesting.
With all of this said, I want to introduce you guys to Whimseybox! I received my first Whimseybox last week and boy, I was excited! What the hell is a Whimseybox you say?! Only the coolest thing ever! It’s a $15 a month service in which you can get a DIY kit delivered right to your home. At Whimseybox they believe everyone is creative and has the ability to make something unique and beautiful. Do you know how many times i’ve heard someone tell me they want to do more DIY projects and never do it or are super lazy? Well, PROBLEM SOLVED! You get instructions, all the materials, cute packaging, and creative freedom to make something rad.
Okay, so on to the box…
So my first box was a DIY Peppermint Lip Balm! The box arrived adorably packaged and ready to go. The box is reusable and comes with a label for organizing purposes. It came with 3 tins to put the lip balm in, peppermint oil, castor oil, a dropper, three sticks for mixing and a linen drawstring bag full of beeswax beads.
The lip balm was VERY simple to make but totally fun. I felt like a mad scientist in the best way possible and I am happy with the end results. I was toying with the idea of adding a bit of lipstick to make them tinted but decided against it last minute. Overall, I give my first Whimseybox project 5 out of 5 Sprinkle filled shot glasses.
So basically I fell in love with Whimseybox if you couldn’t tell. What are some DIY projects you’ve been thinking about lately?
