Fabric covered box DIY kit, small box cartonnage kit 102, Online instructions included


Cartonnage is an amazing technique. Making your own fabric box is a great idea! It is so fun and it makes a unique handmade gift! You can make your own keepsake 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 small fabric box with hinged lid box, 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 box will be 6 2/8" x 4 5/8" x 2 1/4". No worries about cutting paper! Fabric and other contents showed in pictures are not included.

ONLINE INSTRUCTIONS NOW AVAILABLE! The instruction is a very clear PDF tutorial (eBook) with 191 pictures showing in details step by step to guide you through the whole process (it is not video, it's eBook), no steps missing, no guessing! Inside the kit you will find the password and easy directions to download the instruction to your computer. 

Basic cartonnage complementary content with videos you can see in my FREE online course Joy of Cartonnage.  

For making the box you will need this kit, two coordinating fabrics (1 fat quarter each), glue (Glue All from Elmer's), rotary cutter, cutting board, a small paint roller with tray, paint brush, cloth clips, masking tape, scissors and optional tassel or charm. Cartonnage tools (spatula, acrylic spacers and corner tool) are required to have better finishing of your project, and you can find them in the tools section of the shop.

I can only do paper instructions so offering a FREE online tutorial does not help me one single bit. I ordered also from another company and she provided paper printed instructions. I will use her instructions to figure out how to cover your box. Wish you offered it both ways. I am a Boomer doing it the old fashioned way. But, do you offer wholesale? I am a brick and mortar and would like to teach a box making class in my store but need a break on kits. Thanks
