International Blessings, who kindly sent me this Box of Blessings to review, states that their mission is to empower 3rd world artisans by selling and promoting their handmade products, which then helps to create sustainable livelihoods and eliminate poverty around the world. Each Box of Blessings will have 3-4 pieces of jewelry or other handcrafted products made by impoverished people around the world.
Box of Blessings ships via USPS during the first week of the month and are only available to those in the US.
Box of Blessings ships in a tiny little box. They pack a lot into those little boxes, but they are quite small.
The September 2015 Box of Blessings included the following products made in “Uganda”:
~Paper & Bone Bead Earrings ($7.50): These earrings are hand-crafted by Ugandan Artisans out of recycled paper beads and hand-carved and dyed bone beads. I am always fascinated with paper beads. They are made out of scrap/reject paper which is then cut and rolled into beads and dipped into a clear varnish. It seems very difficult, but they always look so gorgeous.
~Paper Bead Band Bracelet ($5): This is another paper bead item. And again, I am fascinated with it. So beautiful. I need to find a You Tube video tutorial and see what making them is really like.
~Paper Bead Stretch Bracelet ($4): This is a different variation of the paper bead bracelet. It’s stretchy, so it fits just about any wrist which is nice.
~Zipper Pouch ($4): I think I linked to the correct pouch, but I can’t be totally sure. The pattern on this one is great and the colors are so vibrant.
All totaled I came up with a value of $20.50 for the September 2015 Box of Blessings. I liked all of the items in this box, but I so wish the value was higher. It was quite low and I would expect it to at least equal the cost of the box.
