NEW PADDED BOX PATTERNS

 

We are sorry that we have had to stop cutting and selling our box kits. Instead we are producing patterns of our boxes with templates so that you can cut your own card. I will continue to design new boxes which will then appear as patterns.

These patterns do not contain the card to make the boxes but give instructions for you to cut your own

These are the Padded box patterns on which I have been working. There are more to come but these are the first instalment. Each Pattern contains illustrated colour instructions for making one or more padded boxes. There is information on the type of card to use for boxes as well as adhesives, fabrics and waddings (batting). There are instructions for cutting the card required to make the boxes and step by step instructions. Some of the patterns give instructions for making several boxes while others are for one particular box. There are clear measurements and templates for shaped pieces.

These patterns are sold as numbered loose sheets in a self seal bag for easy storage or alternative for putting each page in individual plastic pockets in a ring binder.

I have been asked about obtaining the best card for making the padded boxes. We have always used grey board 1.5mm thick which is about 900 - 1000 gsm in weight. By putting grey board in to Google a variety of suppliers wholesale and retail come up. Try ebay. I found the right thickness in A3 size and there were more options as well.

Craft, art, hobby shops and picture framers might stock 1.5mm grey board and mount board for use with paintings which is about the right thickness and density. Off cuts may be obtained from picture framers.
