NEW: if you don't have the tools already, there is one option now to buy this kit with the cartonnage tools (acrylic spacers, corner miter tool and plastic spatula) included in your kit. Hint: is less expensive than buying them separately.
Making your own fabric covered box it's so fun and the final boxes are unique handmade gifts! You can make your own fabric boxes, cases and much more out of paperboard, fabric and glue with this lovely craft!! And your pieces will be sturdy as wood, but made with your favorite fabric!
This DIY cartonnage Kit comes with all cardboard you need to make your own tool box with dividers, as shown in the pictures. Great for cartonnage, scrapbooking, bookbinding tools, for sewing notions, or whatever you decide to use it for. The pieces of paper (chipboard and poster board) are precut in the right sizes you need for this project. The finished box will be 13" x 6" x 2 3/4". With this DIY kit there is no worries about cutting paper. The chipboard used in this kit is 100 point (0.1 in) thick, extra heavy, so this box will be very sturdy and well finished! Hardware (metal handle, clasp and brads) included. Fabric, tools and other contents showed in pictures are not included. If you want to buy this kit with the tools included, please choose this option when buying!
