The Fabric Treasure Chest Plus in details

FEEL THE JOY OF CARTONNAGE while having lots of fun making this amazing Fabric Chest Plus - with hidden compartment

Lots of fun to make this box, adding all the divisions and little spaces that will hide a special tray that can be only revealed once the back of the box is opened!

It's a clever idea and it's not easy to find how to access the hidden compartment, what adds to the fun!

Choose your favorite fabrics

This box allows you to have fun choosing your fabrics and placing them in so many different parts. Picking your fabrics is a great part of the fun!

Very functional box!

With a tray, a small compartment below the tray, and dividers on the side, the inside of the box can hold a lot! Isn't just fun to make, it's also functional to use! Perfect for sewing notions, threads, art supplies, jewelry, make up and whatever else you decide to use it for. It will be also a great gift and a box your grandkids will love to receive, especially that it has one extra hidden tray that can only be accessed when the back is opened!

This project Is a variation from a project of Claudia's book - Cartonnage Basics & Beyond - the complete guide for fabric box making!

The book was published in 2017 and many fabric lovers have made the projects of the book. Now, inspired by the Treasure chest, this new box was designed to have the hidden compartment. The final size of both boxes are the same, what change is the inside and the construction!

I'm Claudia Squio - founder of ColorWay Arts and the teacher here. I've been designing and making cartonnage boxes and other projects for a while, and it feels like forever! I'm the author of the Book Cartonnage Basics & Beyond - the complete guide for fabric box making. I have a real passion for crafts, especially fabric related, I love the texture, the combinations, but I was never good at sewing (don't tell anyone!), so I found gluing fabric relaxing and wonderful. And, most of all, I LOVE teaching and sharing this amazing technique with thousands of fabric/paper lovers through my local and online classes and my Cartonnage Club. I'm a Brazilian-American living in Michigan with my wonderful supportive family - husband and two kids.
