Making cartonnage fabric boxes is SO fun! With this amazing technique we are able to make so many different kinds of boxes and other projects, all using our favorite fabrics with no-sewing required!
Cartonnage DIY kits - the new collection
The beautiful fabric covered boxes are made using cardboard, fabric, glue and other simple materials. To make cartonnage boxes you can start the project from the very beginning designing and then cutting the thick chipboard and other papers required and then building the boxes, or you can skip this hard step of cutting heavy chipboard and having fun choosing your favorite fabric and starting from DIY kits will all pieces of cardboard already pre-cut in the right sizes to make the unique boxes. That's the case of this New Collection of boxes - DIY kits with online instructions.
Now let me explain to you the new ColorWay Arts DIY Kits Collection – Cartonnage fabric boxes - Fun with Fat Quarters! It’s a great set of fabric boxes that were designed to be:
· Fun to make!
· Great handmade gifts
· Beautiful and functional boxes
· Perfect size to be made with fat quarters
· SO unique, never sold in stores, made BY YOU!
· Full of new cartonnage steps, what means you will learn a lot from each of them.
So, the fabric boxes of this new collection are:
- The Small Elegant Window box
- The Fabric spinning box
- The Desk clock organizer
The DIY kits to make these wonderful boxes were on PRE-SALE (sold out for now). Limited quantities were available at this time and this was a great opportunity for you to be the first to make the 3 new projects, having so much fun learning a lot.....plus....saving money!

IMPORTANT: In this PRE-SALE event, you will buy the bundle of the 3 DIY kits with a great discount! In case you don't want the 3 of them, you will need to wait until the kits start selling separate in November, and buy them separately for their normal prices. Before deciding, let me tell you that each project has something really unique in the process of making, if you don't make them all, you will miss the fun!
Let’s see some details of each project:
