  4. Great box this month! Loved everything about it. So many useful items that I can’t imagine anyone complaining. The little roll of triangles was so cute!

  5. This box was terrific! I loved everything in it. I bought the larger folded corner ruler last year for my birthday and have really liked it, so I am eager to try the smaller version. The fabric is beautiful, and I’d had my eye on it for a while, so I was very happy to receive it. Everything in the box will be useful!
