Offer me a free class/workshop and I will happily take on a new hobby!
I took a one week workshop from Colorway Arts and jumped headfirst into Cartonnage - the art of making fabric-covered boxes from scratch. There are different ways of doing this and we learned the Brazillian methods.
In this process you cover the chipboard pieces first and then construct the box. There were choices for the type of box to construct and I chose to do the "Box on a box".
I selected a fabric with spools and a coordinating fabric with a floral lattice.
We were supposed to attach a knob to the top but I didn't have one. From my sewing room I snagged an old spool of thread from a display and added a button with a shank to the top. A piece of fine wire holds the button into the hole in the spool and anchors it all through the top piece of cardboard. (It is all glued in place along with the wire.)
