It would seem that 2012 just might be the year that subscription shopping went mainstream. From a box of projects to entertain your bored toddler, to a pack of handsome socks and chic underwear for the man in your life, it seems that just about anything you can think of these days can arrive at your doorstep for a monthly fee (procured just for you and wrapped up pretty in a cute little box.)
Attention crafters and DIY devotees: put down the glue gun and listen up! For the Makers is a new subscription service that delivers craft supplies straight to your door. On the second Saturday of each month (for a $29 fee, of course) you will receive a box of supplies and instructions for creating four to six unique projects. You can follow the detailed how-tos for each project on the web site (and in the box) or let your imagination run wild and have at it solo.
Now these are obviously not the prices you would pay if you headed out to the craft store yourself, but For the Makers says, you get to "head straight to the fun part." This service looks like it could be a neat idea for the new or light crafter, as the projects looks pretty easy and fairly simple and are along the lines of a DIY kit. It could also make a sweet gift! A gift of supplies for four to six projects might just make the aspiring crafter in your life swoon.
