Cartonnage - Trinket Purse

Hello everyone!
 
I have always liked to incorporate fabric in my projects (at least whenever I can), but today I want to share with you a trinket purse which I made completely from scratch and it is all covered with fabric (in the best traditions of cartonnage) :)))
 


 

I've added a shker on the top lid, but it turned out not exactly the way I planned. Anyway, I will of course learn from my mistakes.

 
 

The picture in the shaker window is directional (I will not do that any more), since something looks wrong once the purse is kept in a standing position :)
 
Here are some of the close-ups of the details:
 


 
And here is how the inside looks like:
 
 
I've just realized, that I haven't been using my personal watermark on the pictures of a project for a long time, since almost all of them were made for a certain design team, unlike this purse, which was created just for fun, to learn and explore new things and new materials.
 
I hope you like it.
 
Have a great day!

  5. This is gorgeous and would be an awesome gift to give someone. Particularly love the fabric that you have used.

    Is there any chance that you will be making a tutorial to sell for this project? Would love to buy it.

    Cheers

    1. Hi Trina. I am still practicing the technique of covering chipboard with fabric. Once I master it better, I will think about making a tutorial. ;)
