I actually made two of these boxes, one for me and one for a gift. I used button fabric I bought from Colorway Arts and loved them!

A quality kit with great instruction

Claudia, thank you for all you do. Your kits are meticulously created and ensure success with every box. As a bookmaker I’m amazed at the precision of each cut board. Your instruction is equally careful making sure each step and the reason for the step is perfectly clear. I’ve made seven of your boxes and each one was fun to do and came out exactly as promised. Thank you for the joy you bring to each video and for your generosity in sharing your knowledge and expertise.
