Have fun making your own fabric covered box! The final boxes are unique handmade gifts! You can make your own cartonnage 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 fabric sewing caddy, as shown in the pictures. Great for sewing notions but also a great desk organizer to use with 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 11 3/8" x 5 1/2 " x 4 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! Hardware (metal handles) are included. The kit also include extra pieces to make a pin cushion and a thread holder. Fabric, sewing notions and other contents showed in pictures are not included.
ONLINE INSTRUCTIONS AVAILABLE! The instruction is a very clear PDF tutorial with 200 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!
