Cartonnage is a lovely craft! With paperboard, fabric and glue we can have so much fun and make great handmade gits using this technique with NO-SEW......and your pieces will be sturdy as wood, but made with your favorite fabric! This Fabric Christmas Sign is a great handmade decoration for your home or as a gift!
This DIY cartonnage Kit comes with all cardboard you need to make your own cartonnage fabric Christmas sign, 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 sign will be 12" x 6 1/2". Fabric is not included, use your favorite one!
ONLINE INSTRUCTIONS AVAILABLE! The instruction is a very clear PDF tutorial (written) 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 download the instruction to your computer.
For making this sign you will need this kit, the instruction, two coordinating fabrics (1 fat quarter each or less), white PVA glue (Glue All - Elmer's), rotary cutter, cutting board, a small paint roller with tray, paint brush, paper awl, or another hole punch, a small piece of ribbon and masking tape.
