Description

Hand Made Origami Keepsake Box Fabric Covered Box - Japanese Cranes - Cartonnage - Gift Box - Sewing Gift

A completely handmade box, hand cut from sturdy cardstock and covered in top quality quilting fabric featuring a beautiful, Japanese style design featuring cranes on a gilded pink background and lined with a coordinating fabric.

The craft of cartonnage originated in France and involves constructing items from card and covering with decorative paper or beautiful fabric. This can range from simple stationery items such as a book cover or pen holder to very intricate boxes. It is a very popular craft in France and some other northern european countries although less well known in the U.K. and United States.

I have called this an origami box because the way it is constructed mean that when you press the sides it has some movement in it. This particular box has a tassel on the lid as an extra detail and it has a padded interior for a luxurious feel. Ideal for storing sewing notions as shown or to present a very special gift.

This would be a luxurious, one of a kind gift for giving to a special person or for spoiling yourself. I never make the same box twice as, because they take so long to make, I need to be newly inspired each time.

Dimensions - The sides consist of six 5" equilateral triangles with a 5.5" square padded lid.

Other designs and my hexagonal sewing boxes are available in my shop here https://www.tialys.etsy.com or ask me for a custom made hexagonal box.

If you would like to see part of the process for making one of these boxes you can see it on my blog here https://www.thetialys.wordpress.com/2009/10/16/hexagonal-etui-box-a-deconstruction/

If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to ask.

(Contents of the box not included).

Thank-you for looking.
