#PaperHaul Box 3 - The Bird Box

I am a bad, bad blogger. Bad. Bad. Bad.
This post should have been up a looooong time ago - I've just been so busy and so tired that pretty much everything has fallen by the wayside, and I'm sorry.

I am especially sorry because I have really been wanting to share this with you - the third #PaperHaul box, which I have chosen to call The Bird Box.

This is definitely my favourite #PaperHaul so far.
I love birds and bird imagery, so the theme was perfect for me. Even if I wasn't already thrilled with the theme, the contents are so pretty I defy anyone not to love it.

As with the other #PaperHaul boxes, the contents are a mixture of postcards, cards, pretty papers, tags and stickers along with a washi tape. The washi tape in this box is truly beautiful, with its colourful birds on wire silhouette, I'll definitely be getting a lot of use out of it and will probably have to track the design down so I can get more!

Some of the things in the box are so pretty that I can't actually decide if I want to use them and send them to people or keep them for myself. I'm considering framing the black wing print card, even though I can think of someone it would be perfect to send to - is that selfish?

The papers are also my favourite of all the designs I have received. I love the retro kitsch flamingoes, and the colours of the peacock feather design are so lovely (my poor lighting and deficient photography skills do the colours absolutely no justice). I've recently started following a lot of Journalling/Scapbooking type people on Instagram and I really want to give scrapbooking a go. These papers would be great for that, if I can get over the fact that all I really want to do is look at them!

The pigeon stickers and little notecards are lots of fun. I love the idea of sending the little notecards to people out of the blue, just because I like to think it would put a smile on their face.
I currently have two penpals, one in the US and one in Paris, so having a supply of cards and pretty things to send is very useful, plus the things you get in a #PaperHaul box aren't your bog-standard, mass-produced supermarket cards that are both common and naff (#judegemental).

I can't even imagine how much work goes into putting these boxes together around a theme, but I'm very impressed with what I've seen so far and am very much looking forward to my next box.

Have you signed up to #PaperHaul yet? If not, you can find out more on their website here. The boxes are monthly and cost £10 + p&p.
If you're a beady sort of person then there is a new #beadhaul box launching soon - find out more here.

Hope you are all well,

NB. I have received a discount on the box price as a reviewing blogger
