The Adults & Crafts Crate: The Gateway Subscription

Being based in Colorado, we are used to the ole saying that marijuana is a gateway drug, and while the jury is still out on that claim, we do have conclusive evidence that our monthly craft subscription box, The Adults & Crafts Crate, is a gateway subscription box!

 What do we mean by that exactly? Well, just as people claim that marijuana will lead people to heavier drugs and possible addiction, the Adults & Crafts Crate can lead people to an addiction to new craft techniques and can blossom into a new hobby. The major difference is while a drug addiction is undoubtedly a negative outcome, an obtaining a new craft hobby is, in our humble opinion, an unbelievably positive outcome!

So you may be wondering where our conclusive evidence may lie? Well here are three different examples.  

1) Woodburning - What we consider our signature craft kit for a variety of reasons, multiple different customers have become woodburning fanatics after receiving our kit. Our Woodburning DIY Craft Kit includes practice wood, multiple wood products, and most importantly, the wood burning tool!

We aim to give the customer a taste of the craft and if they like it, they can run with it and the best part is they already have the wood burning tool and other accessories needed for them to (wood) burn their hearts out! 

 

Here is an example of an Instagram Post from our customer Ashley, her piece was amazing!

 

2) Color Crafting - We have a few different projects that you guessed it, use a lot of colors! A couple of these include our Alcohol Ink Coasters DIY Craft Kit and our Marbling Paint Diy Craft KitBoth kits require techniques that once learned, can be used on all types of products, and frankly, that's exactly what happens sometimes. We had one customer that went on a marbling rampage and marbled almost everything in her house after learning the new DIY craft technique. The possibilities with alcohol ink dying are truly endless!

 

A Variety of Ink-Dyed Coasters!

 

3) Embossing - It all started with an innocent Embossing Cardmaking DIY Craft Kit around the holiday time and has since turned into our FAVORITE craft technique. What we didn't know when we first tried embossing (which if you haven't tried it yet, you must!!), is that you can emboss almost anything includes tumblers, mugs, glass, paper, and almost anything else underneath the sun. One of our customers has turned her embossing technique into a bachelorette party business and now makes customized embossed tumblers for bachelorette parties, amazing!

So there are just a few examples of our monthly craft subscription introducing customers to new crafting technique that then turned into new hobbies. We aim to have as much variety as possible with our DIY craft selections. We also include the required tools for certain techniques which gives lifetime value to almost every kit we sell! One month may not be your cup of tea, but there is a very good chance the next month will be with the Adults & Crafts Crate monthly craft subscription box!

The Top Ten Reasons to Subscribe to the Adults & Crafts Crate

The Adults & Crafts Crate is a monthly craft subscription box that sends all the materials, accessories, tools, and instructions needed for a trendy and engaging craft project. When people ask us "why should I subscribe?" or "this sounds cool, tell me more?", it's difficult to know where to start!

So here is our attempt to get the top ten reasons to subscribe to the Adults & Crafts Crate down on "paper".  Let's give this a try... 

1. It's Crafting at it's Most Convenient

This is the main reason we started Adults & Crafts, to make crafting as convenient as possible. We had hundreds of DIY craft Pinterest pins that we wanted to do, but when push came to shove, the tasks of picking a project to actually d, figuring out how to make it, and going around to buy all the materials for it made the endeavor a bit too daunting. 

Co-Founder, Marianna, had had enough! She thought "why can't crafting be as easy as ordering a pizza?!", and thus Adults & Crafts was born.

Every Adults & Crafts DIY Craft Kit comes with everything you need to create a trendy and engaging project. That means every month of the Adults & Crafts Kit comes with the necessary materials, tools, accessories, and easy to follow instructions to get a fun project done! Our goal is to allow the customer to skip right to the fun part: crafting! We'll do all the heavy lifting.

2. A Totally Different Project Every Month

Our mission with the Adults & Crafts Crate is to offer a wide variety of craft projects. We do this for a few different reasons...

  • It introduces you to projects you may otherwise never have tried
  • You will be able to learn an arsenal of different craft skills
  • If you do end up loving a project, i.e. woodburning, you now have a "starter kit" for your new favorite hobby!

Projects vary from woodworking, clay, terrariums/floral, cement, wood burning, soap making, and almost everything in between!

3. Finished Products are Beautiful, Fun, and Functional.

We pride ourselves in picking projects that can either be displayed at home for you to show off to friends and family (making great talking pieces) or that can actually be used for a functional purpose.

Some artsy projects include wood burning, string art, terrariums, and wall art. Some functional projects include alcohol-ink dyed coasters, embossing card making, clockmaking, wine & cheese chalkboard serving tray, and soapmaking. The functional projects are especially nice because a lot of them are products you would otherwise probably spend more money on to buy from a retail shop.

4. It's Something to Look Forward to Each Month AND it Gives you that Good Ole' Sense of Accomplishment

There are a few different reasons why the subscription box industry has grown over 800% since 2014, but one of the main reasons is the surprise factor of opening a new box every month. It is like a mini Christmas morning every month!

Remembering that you have something to look forward to every month can really brighten your mood on those inevitable "off days". Then the really fun part comes after opening your box up and seeing what's inside.

Now it's time to get your craft on! The act of crafting can be a mini escape from the hustle of bustle of everyday life, it allows you to get lost in the craft and gives you a reason to get off your phone (except when you take that Instagram picture).

Once you're done, and you're (hopefully) proud of what you made, it's time to show off your craft, which gives us you "feel-good sense of accomplishment" emotion that turns that OK day, into a great day!

5. Be Careful, it's a "Gateway Craft"

As we mentioned earlier, you may just find your favorite new hobby via our monthly craft subscription, but that's not all.

Many of our customers have described crafting as "addictive" and now look for any reason to craft. This means they start to have crafty date nights, craft parties with their friends and family, and jump into their own crafting routine.

You never know until you try, but what we do know is more craftiness = more happiness.

6. It's More Engaging than Coloring and Painting, and you can Still Enjoy some Wine.

We aim to make our projects a bit more engaging than a coloring book or painting. That is nothing against coloring or painting as we love those activities as well, but we like to be well rounded with our crafts, a jack of all crafts per say! 

Adults & Crafts DIY craft projects act more as guidelines or outlines. We give you everything you need to get the project done, but with a degree of freedom that allows you to put your own unique touch on it. You can put as much effort into each kit as you want thus making it as straightforward or as intricate as your crafting heart desires. Some of the designs and ideas our customers come up with are truly mind-boggling!

7. Kits and Finished Products Make Great Gifts

As they say, giving is better than receiving, and giving a handmade, personalized creation is even better! Many of our of our monthly craft subscription projects are perfect for giving a meaningful, thoughtful gift. Or if you don't have enough time to create something yourself, you can just give the full craft kit. Who knows, you may even get a finished craft as a return gift! Does that count as re-gifting, we don't think so!

8. You Assemble a Collection of Useful and Fun Tools

If you were subscribed to the Adults & Crafts Crate over the past six months you would have acquired a wood burner, hammer, screwdriver, hot glue gun, embossing heat tool, rolling pin, paint brushes, paint tray, and many other useful tools.

We think of this as a special bonus for subscribing to the Adults & Crafts Crate. Our main focus is not to load you up with tools, but I guess that just happens anyways! 

9. It saves you Time, Money, and Frustration. 

THIS is the main reason we started Adults & Crafts. We wasted so much time figuring out how to make a project and running around to get materials. Then once we got home, we would either realize we bought the wrong stuff or messed up the project. Frustrating to say the least! So we decided it was much more efficient and effective if WE did the heavy lifting so YOU can skip right to the fun part: CRAFTING!

Also, it is our goal to send just enough of the materials for you to get the project done, but not so much that you have tons of unusable materials laying around. This also helps you avoid buying way more than you need at the store, thus saving you some hard earned cash.

10. After all, Crafting IS Cheaper than Therapy!

Crafting can be very therapeutic and can provide that sometimes necessary escape from a hectic day. Allowing yourself some time away from your phone and helping you forget some unfortunate event from earlier can do wonders for your mood. Especially when you are doing some fun, engaging crafting instead!

Crafting: The Perfect Activity For ANY Bachelorette Party!

Bachelorette parties are all about spending time with close friends and family, creating everlasting memories (we hope you remember), and having a ton of fun celebrating the woman of the hour! While we don't have any qualms about the traditional bachelorette party, we do however offer the perfect compliment to any type of bachelorette party: CRAFTING!

WARNING: Crafty Bachelorette Parties May Escalate Quickly!

Our Bachelorette Craft Party Pack is the ideal addition to any weekend itinerary for a few different reasons. Let's explore...

 

1) It's Hassle-Free - There's no doubt that a majority of people love crafting, but doing all of the prerequisite tasks (choosing crafts, figuring out how to make them, buying materials, etc) can be one major pain in the butt.  That's probably why crafting for a bachelorette party isn't very common.

 

With our Bachelorette Party Craft Party Pack, everything you need for a few different fun and engaging craft projects come directly to a location of your choice. No need to run around to the craft store, hobby shop, or hardware store, we do the heavy lifting for you! All you have to do is open up the boxes and get a few bottles of wine!

 

2) The Projects Are Really Fun - With our main craft party pack, each attendee will get the chance to do three different projects. We recommend making a homemade embossed card (with a sentimental note written inside of course) for the Bride, and then doing a couple of the other projects to take home as keepsakes. That way you'll have a couple other ways to remember the weekend by besides a few pictures that are not social media approved. 

 

The Homemade Embossing Card Making Kit comes with every party pack because there is truly no better way to express your love for someone than a homemade card WITH a special handwritten note on the inside. Plus if you haven't embossed anything yet, you're missing out!

Using a Heat Tool to Emboss is One of the Most Addictive Craft Techniques EVER

The other projects we offer in our Bachelorette Craft Party Pack include Wood Burning, String Art, Marbling, and Alcohol Ink Dyed Coasters (which may come in handy during the festivities). All of these projects have been very well received by our existing customers as individual craft kits, get a bunch of girls together doing them and the sky's the limit!

 String Art Projects From A You-Guessed-It, BUFFALO Bachelorette Party

3) It's Something A Little Different - Bachelorette Parties come in all shapes and sizes. Some can be fairly chill white enjoying each other's company and catching up, while others, well actually I don't think we need to talk about how some others get! The one thing that almost every Bachelorette Party has though is a variety of trinkets and party favors.

 

We have nothing against the sash, custom t-shirts, and perhaps a blow-up doll (OK, maybe we aren't the biggest fans of the blow-up dolls), but we feel this is the perfect place for crafting! Not only do you get to have a fun time making and creating, but the finished crafts immediately turn into cherished possessions. Plus, when you get a bunch of girls, some music, a few bottles of wine, and crafting all in one room, it is pretty much impossible not to have fun! It's just something a bit different and compared to some other Bachelorette activities, it's reasonable and wholesome!

 

4) Leave Eith Something You Love - Attendees can make cards and crafts for the future bride, and the future bride and reciprocate. Nothing says "I love you" or "thank you for coming" or "wow did that really just happen?" like a handmade craft that you can all take home. Plus it won't just one craft, it could be a variety of different crafts, all with their own unique story behind them, kinda like each attendee.

 

So there you have it. If you are looking for something different for the next bachelorette party you attend, look no further than a Bachelorette Craft Party Pack from Adults & Crafts!

Need A New Date Idea? Try Crafting!

You can only go to so many restaurants and see so many movies before the ole "dinner and a movie" date gets a bit old. And sure there are other fun ideas such as ice skating, hiking, or perhaps a shopping date, but the best date ever could be enjoyed right in the comfort of your own home!

That's right, we are talking about crafting! Date night crafting never existed in our minds until we started Adults & Crafts, and honestly, it wasn't until some of our customers told us they used our DIY craft kits as a date night activity that it really sunk in that crafting is a perfect date idea. In fact, it became so popular we added a Date Night DIY Craft Pack to our collection of craft kits.

Not only does crafting bring you and your loved one together under different circumstances than you are used to, but crafting has a way of bringing out some genuine conversation that otherwise may not come up over dinner. It does a great job of smoothing over any tensions or even rekindling a weakening relationship. Throw a bottle of wine in there and you never know where the night may lead, or what type of designs you come up with.

Not only does craft date night bring out some great conversation, but the process of crafting together can expose a creative or silly side of someone that may otherwise remain dormant. This is especially true for many guys who haven't dug deep into their creative reservoir since middle school art class. It is amazing what some people are capable of, they often surprise themselves!

The best part of a crafty date night is when the crafting is all complete for the night, you will each have multiple finished products you'll be able to keep and remember the night forever.

We have even seen craft date nights used for a first date idea, which (potentially) gives extra special sentimental value to those finished products!

Whether it's for a first date, a mother-daughter date, or a 25th anniversary, a date night that involves crafting is guaranteed to bring out the smiles. So if you are looking for a new date idea, look no further, crafting is your answer!
