Fabric tool box DIY kit, cartonnage kit 138, online instructions included


Making your own fabric covered box it's so fun and the final boxes are unique handmade gifts! You can make your own 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 tool box with dividers, as shown in the pictures. Great for cartonnage, scrapbooking, bookbinding tools, for sewing notions, or 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 13" x 6" x 2 3/4". 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 handle, clasp and brads) included. Fabric, tools and other contents showed in pictures are not included.

ONLINE INSTRUCTIONS AVAILABLE! The instruction is a very clear PDF tutorial (eBook) with over 100 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.

To make the box you will need this kit, two coordinating fabrics (3/4 yard each), glue, rotary cutter, cutting board, a small paint roller with tray, paint brush, masking tape, scissor, elastic bands (4.5"), hole punch, paper awl. 

Cartonnage tools (spatula, acrylic spacers and corner tool) will facilitate the process and give a better finishing for your project. Find them in the tools section of the shop.

cook book

Now that I have the cartonnage bug, it is exciting to see these kits out there to put together. The cuts on the chipboard are clean and accurate. I found the directions on the insert pages on the cookbook complicated and had to fail before I had success. I didn't realize you have the pages for sale in your store as I didn't see them online to buy. Perhaps having a link that goes from book to pages purchase would be helpful. And maybe it was there and I just didn't notice it.
Having fun putting these kits together and giving them as gifts!
Suggestion: Perhaps larger, shallow compartment boxes for sewing notions or office supplies for the serious crafter. 8.5 x 11 with a label tag spot and stackable. Sure you can buy plastic at the store but would rather use natural materials instead of plastic.

This box is not only beautiful to look at, it is truly very functional as well. It can be personalized for your particular wants with optional dividers. I love it, as it keeps all of my cartonnage crafting tools in one neat place! With the kit, it is super easy to make. Thank you Colorway Arts!!!
