Cartonnage is a lovely handmade art, originated in France long time ago and it has been revived around the world in the latest years. It is the “art of box making”, out of cardboard, glue and fabric or paper. With this technique, we can make much more than boxes, unique functional pieces to decorate our homes, for everyday use or as unique gifts.
With step by step color picture Cartonnage instructions (about 700 pictures), no steps missing, this book is a master class to make your own beautiful fabric boxes from the very beginning. Also covers how to build more advanced pieces including dividers, trays and drawers. You will learn how to start from the scratch cutting your own cardboard or you will be able to start from some DIY kits (sold separately) with all pieces of paperboard pre cut and have fun using your favorite fabrics.
Very simple materials needed, no expensive tools! You will also have the opportunity to learn how to personalize your boxes painting your own fabric or adding embroideries! Online videos available for this book.
