Item details

Making your own fabric cartonnage box is a great idea! It is so fun and it makes a unique handmade gift 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 box, as shown in the pictures, with some options. No worries about cutting paper, the pieces chipboard and poster board are precut in the right sizes you need for this project. The finished box will be 10” x 6 ¼ ” x 7” inches. The embellishments (charms shown in the pictures are not included in the kit, they are personal options). Fabric and other contents showed in pictures are not included. If you want to make your treasure box as shown in pictures with straps of faux leather and clasp, there is one option for this kit including the clasp and the bag feet to fix the faux leather. The faux leather is not included as they are easy to found in lots of colors. Use one that match your fabric!

ONLINE INSTRUCTIONS NOW AVAILABLE! The instruction is a very clear PDF tutorial (eBook) with lots of pictures showing in details step by step to guide you through the whole process (it is not video, it's written instructions), no steps missing, no guessing! Inside the kit you will find the password and easy directions to go to my website and download the instruction to your computer. You can print it out or you can see directly on your computer, you can zoom and see it with more details if you prefer!

Basic cartonnage complementary content with videos you can see in my FREE online class: http://learncartonnage.colorwayarts.com/courses/joycartonnagefree

For making the box you will need this kit, two coordinating fabrics (1/2 yard each), glue, rotary cutter, cutting board, a small paint roller with tray, paint brush and masking tape.
To have better finishing of your project I strongly recommend using Cartonnage tools that you can find here:

Optional: If you want to make the option with faux leather, then you will also need faux leather, paper awl and seam ripper. If you want to add embellishments, then you will also need them.

Metal feet can also be applied to this box and I have some available here: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/562534088/metal-feet-metal-box-feet-box-decoration?ref=shop_home_active_2
