This kit DOES NOT include the knob. See shop supplies section for some knobs options. 

This DIY cartonnage Kit comes all cardboard you need to make your own Box on a box as shown in the pictures. The pieces of chipboard and poster board are precut in the right sizes you need for this project. The finished box will be 6 ¼ ” x 6 ¼ ” x 5”. With this DIY kit there is no worries about cutting thick chipboard. 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! Fabric, knob and other contents showed in pictures are not included.

For making the box you will need this kit, two coordinating fabrics (1/2 yard each), Glue All (Elmer's), rotary cutter, cutting mat,  paint roller, paint brush, plastic spatula, masking tape, scissors, and a knob with screw of your choice. The cartonnage tool -corner miter tool - is very recommended for this and any other cartonnage project. Check the tools section of the shop.

We also have a great selection of unique fabrics, check our fabric section.

Fabric Box DIY kit

I really liked the precut pieces, and it made making the box much quicker. I had a lot of shifts I was scheduled to work, so this precut kit made making a box easier for me with my schedule. Looking forward to finishing it and doing another!

Cartonnage kits

I ordered the box on a box kit and another smaller kit. I have made both and I was very impressed with the quality and precision of the pieces.

ColorWayArts is nothing short of fantastic!

Claudia of ColorWayArts has the knack of inspiring enthusiasm and confidence in this beginning cartonnage student. Glue and I are not usually very friendly, but Claudia anticipated all the possible pitfalls and made this experience absolutely wonderful. I was able to make two boxes during this challenge, and am confident I will be able to replicate them another day. Claudia’s instruction is thorough, and her enthusiasm and confidence are absolutely contagious. I so appreciate having been able to be a part of Claudia’s cartonnage freebie challenge. I couldn’t have participated live, but Claudia was so generous to offer recordings. I wish I could join the Cartonnage Club now, but I look forward to doing so sometime in the future. Thank you, Claudia, for your kindness and sharing your skills and fun!

Great Project

I never trust myself to cut as exactly as cartonnage requires. The kits make the build a pleasure.

Great service!

My order arrived very quickly. I love the convenience of the precut kits, though they are a bit spendy. However, I will probably get more and then try cutting my own chipboard.
