Here’s a look at some of the collectible monthly buttons we’ve included in past OwlCrate boxes!
💜 Every month we include a button that matches the spoiler postcard for each theme. The button features text that lets you know the box number and theme. How many buttons have you collected??
💜 We love seeing the different ways you guys display your buttons. If you swipe through the photos, you can see one clever method we loved...canvas wall banners!
💜 Would you guys like to see more ideas of how to store or display your OwlCrate buttons? We’ve been thinking of filming a video with ideas!

Do you like Studio Ghibli films? Which one is your favourite? I find it so hard to choose, but I think Howl’s Moving Castle takes the top spot! Let me know which ones you love in the comments!
💜 We absolutely adored the art print @audraauclair illustrated for our October box. It was inspired by the film Princess Mononoke (if you haven’t watched it yet - please do!! It’s incredible!).
💜 Check out @audraauclair to see more of this artist’s work. Her stuff is stunning! Thanks for working with us, Audra!

I hope you guys are having a very cozy #socksunday today! I love this photo by @abbyhull11, which features two awesome items we’ve included in past OwlCrate boxes: Edgar Allan Poe-ka Dot Socks from @outofprint, as well as an exclusive book sleeve from @bookbeau!
❤️ I’m currently snuggled up on my couch, with candles lit, and munching some snacks while I read a potential upcoming OwlCrate pick. I can’t believe I’m already reading books that are due to publish in summer 2018! There are so many great books coming out next year guys...you’re in for a treat!
