Whimseybox uses creative content to help people discover and buy craft supplies online.

We’re on a mission to power creativity, and we started in 2011 with a $15 monthly subscription that helps people Stop Pinning + Start Making (tm). Since then, we’ve expanded to launch a custom ecommerce shop with thousands of supplies.(If you can purchase it in a big box craft store, we probably sell it!) Users can find creative inspiration in the thousands of projects posted on Whimseybox.com and then easily purchase the supplies to make them from the Supply List posted under each project.

In 2014 we launched Whimseybox Influencer, the only affiliate program designed specifically for DIY + craft bloggers and websites. This custom technology allows bloggers to easily embed Whimseybox Supply List widgets directly in their blog posts and earn a share of the sales they drive while helping their readers find + purchase the right supplies for a project.
