Item details

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 cartonnage technique!! 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 fabric treasure chest with hidden drawer, as shown in the pictures. The pieces of paper (chipboard and poster board) are precut in the right sizes you need for this project. The finished box will be 8 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 6 1/2". 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! Metal clasp and metal handle included. Fabric and other contents showed in pictures are not included.

This is a exclusive book kit! All instructions are included in the book "Cartonnage Basics & Beyond - The complete guide for fabric box making" written by Claudia Squio. The book is sold separately and you will find it here: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/562521058/cartonnage-basics-beyond-the-complete?ref=shop_home_active_4

For making the box you will need this kit, two coordinating fabrics (total fabric 1 3/4 yard - if using 3 fabrics can be 1/4 yard of one for small details and 3/4 yards each for the other ones), white PVA glue (Glue All - Elmer's), rotary cutter, cutting board, a small paint roller with tray, paint brush, masking tape, scissor, paper awl, small pieces of ribbon. Optional: small charm or D-ring.

To have better finishing of your project I strongly recommend using Cartonnage tools that you can find here:
