September RLB Art Box Studio Review and Coupon

I've always enjoyed arts and crafts but I never considered myself creative enough to come up with my own projects. I've also devoted less time to creative pursuits as I've gotten older, but luckily RLB Art Box Studio is here to provide monthly projects!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

RLB Art Box Studio was created by Rachel L. Berlin as a way for customers to easily and conveniently learn how to use art supplies and make fun works of art. The box is designed for people ages 12 and up and no prior art experience is necessary. It contains everything you need to learn new techniques and makes something fun; it really is an art lesson in a box!

Here are the payment options:
  • Monthly: $25 per month
  • Three Months: $75 every three months, currently on sale for $70
  • Six Months: $150 every six months, currently on sale for $140
  • 12 Months: $300 every 12 months, currently on sale for $275
You can also try one box for $25 without committing to a renewing subscription.

The box came beautifully packaged in Earth-friendly packaging, meaning everything is made from recycled materials and can (and should be!) recycled after use. This may be something you might not notice, but it means a lot to me when companies go the extra mile to use packaging like this.

This month's project was called Reflections of Line. The box contains an instruction card, but you can also watch a video with instructions on the RLB Art Box website. I'm more of a visual learner, so watching the videos is preferable to me.

The project duration was listed as 60-80 minutes, but it only took me about 20 minutes (not including the drying time). It consisted of cutting strips of the yarn, dipping them in glue, and then arranging them in different shapes to create one big shape. That's a very simplified version of the instructions.

Here's my finished product! It only took me 20 minutes because I made a much smaller version than I think was intended, but I have to admit it's because the project was messy and I am impatient (that's not a criticism of RLB Art Box Studio, just me being me). They included gloves to use if you didn't want to get glue all over your hands, but I didn't use them because they made it hard to move the yarn pieces around the way I wanted them to be. I also clipped smaller pieces of yarn, so I think if I had made the sections bigger it may have been a little easier for me.

Since there was so much yarn included, this could easily be repeated. You may have to buy more glue, but that's not expensive so I would definitely use the supplies in the future to do this project again! I still have to find a good place to hang it, because I want it to get good light to cast a shadow somewhere noticeable.

Bottom Line: I really enjoyed this project and I never would have been able to come up with the idea myself. That's what I really like about this box--based on this and their past projects (you can view them all on their website), each box is incredibly creative! If you love art and are looking for a monthly project to create then I highly recommend RLB Art Box Studio!
