It’s safe to say we’ve entered the age of subscription boxes, with hundreds of companies offering subscriptions to meal kits, beauty product samples, pet treats and now arts and crafts. Sarasota resident, Betsy Wild’s desire to share creative projects has led her to start We Craft Box.
We Craft Box fostering creativity
We Craft Box looks to eliminate the extra step of having to figure out what to make and going to the craft store to buy supplies. The subscription allows families to spend less time guessing and more time crafting together.
Each We Craft Box includes materials and instructions for creating two to three crafts, with two to three duplicate supplies of each for multiple children or parents. Every month will be a different craft with seasonal themes.
The one-month We Craft Box price is $24.99, three-month subscription is $69.99, six-month subscription is $139.99, and a 12-month subscription is $279.99. Click HERE to subscribe.
A business inspired by mother’s passion
As a full time working mom of two boys, Wild, like most parents, wanted to spend as much quality time with her kids as possible. With her BFA from Art Center College of Design and work as a Creative Director, Wild looked to share her passion for crafting and creating.
Art is a passion of mine, and such an important part of childhood. However, planning, shopping and preparing for these crafts in my spare time has felt like a waste, as I would much rather spend that time with my kids. I kept thinking to myself, I wish I had a box of prepared crafts, that I, my husband, or even Grandmom could do with the boys. No need for shopping, planning or being creative… each project would be prepared with materials and directions, (if you choose to follow them). – Betsy Wild, Founder of We Craft Box
Facilitated by Tampa Bay Wave, Wild is a part of the nonprofit’s accelerator that supports entrepreneurs. She says she wouldn’t be launching We Craft Box at the level she is without Wave’s support.
