The Original ScrapBox UK; Reviews Are In!
To give you a brief recap of who I am, my name is Claire and I became housebound in 2009 due to chronic illness and disabilities. Within that time I continued to blog here on Heart Handmade UK and I went through an incredible amount of therapy.
After the first lockdown occured, I learned that my spoonie community was suffering and desperately in need of therapeutic resources. It's not like they aren't asking for the help, but they don't have healthcare so they can't get it.
It's my mission to share crafts and creativity as a form of therapy and I have tonnes of ideas here on the site.
I love to consider crafting as a big part of my self care routine and self care is necessary for absolutely everyone being the best version of you is the best gift that you could give yourself and your family.
I have to tell you that The Original ScrapBox UK rebranded shortly after they opened up shop in the EU and UK. They are now CreateRoom.
Before The Original ScrapBox UK Came Into My LIfe
Before I got this DreamBox from the Original Scrapbox UK, I was using a very large Ikea Kallax unit with boxes. What you need to know though is I get very tired very quickly so I can grab my supplies, do a bit of crafting.
And then I have to tap out, putting the supplies away is where it gets tricky for me. I normally end up just jamming them in a box and wondering why I can never find anything.
I've never actually been able to organize everything the exact way I would like it due to the wrong types of storage for my budget.
But this DreamBox from the Original Scrapbox UK is amazing and you’re able to get it for as little as £2.30 a day for daily creativity.
If you asked me
“Would you spend £2.30 a day if you were guaranteed a crafting session every single day?”
My answer would ALWAYS be YES!
And I would look at you like you were an idiot.
Just looking at it full of my supplies beautifully organized makes me smile and it’s an incredible way to start the day. That is how your creative haven should be.

My husband took the crate apart when it arrived because the crate itself was too big to go anywhere. We unpacked it and took everything into the house to keep it out of the rain (we are in Ireland after all).
Everything was organized perfectly. All of the appropriate bits and pieces that come with the furniture are just correctly bagged and labeled.
He's so used to building just regular flat pack furniture from cheaper common four letter brands that usually makes him swear like a sailor.
This involved ZERO swearing!
He said it was really well engineered because it was so easy to put together. He gives it four and a half stars because he’s the type of person to never give anything 5 stars and I give it a 4.8 star review.
The Original ScrapBox UK Accessories:
In the UK and EU the accessories sell out quickly but if you can get your hands on them, I highly recommend getting the Crown light - it’s just necessary in the UK and Ireland.
If you usually like to work spread out on the floor with your supplies around you in a semi circle then invest in the side tables. It means that you can do the same thing without breaking your back or destroying your knees.
The Accessories from The Original Scrapbox UK:
It is not difficult to take the tables up and down and remove those side tables whenever you need to. I absolutely love the amount of space.
The side tables give you to just spread out all of those fabulous supplies and of course, keeping them organized again is not as difficult as you might think with all of this amazing storage.
Complete List Of My Customisations from The Original Scrapbox UK:
Not only is the unit itself very sleek and functional, but when the supplies are all in the unit, it is an absolute dream to look at.
There's nothing better than having your favorite craft supplies on display so that you can look at them and just feel pure joy.
