Cartonnage, the art of box making, is a craft which originated in France. With a minimum of basic equipment and some simple techniques, you can make fabric-covered boxes of all shapes and sizes as well as decorations and accessories for every room of the house: little pots for pencils, correspondence folders, concertina files, trays, picture frames or blotting pads. The boxes themselves can be compartmentalised to make specific containers for sewing materials, writing implements, make-up or cutlery. Easy and quick to make and requiring no specific skills, the projects are grouped into sets for the kitchen, the bathroom, the bedroom, the office and the dining room. This book takes you through all the procedures with clear instructions and photographs of every stage, to ensure that each of the 35 step-by-step projects and the numerous variations presented will make pretty but practical gifts.
