Description: Ready for a new box structure? While the top and bottom of this box are 6” square, the sides are faceted, giving the box the shape of a cut gemstone. French cartonnage techniques will be demonstrated and practiced as we incise book board and add craft tape to build a box with canted sides, line the interior with cartonnettes, and create a fitted lid featuring a knob or button.

Students should bring to the class:

  • Cutting mat
  • craft knife (Olfa or Xacto)
  • 18” metal ruler with metric units
  • mechanical pencil
  • bone folder
  • scissors
  • 1.5 – 2” glue brush (cheap)
  • and emery board.
