Clear instructions & Inspirational

I found the instructions (written & photos) clear and easy to follow. You can either copy the boxes in the book, or let your imagination go and create your own. A great way to used fabric/ribbon scraps etc.

creative ideas galore

A beginner's thoughts

There are many reasons for enjoying this book and for rating it so high. The instructions are easy to follow with wonderful illistrations and pictures with several patterns. It is well written with instructions on how to do each one.The author also gives you a brief but interesting history on theses boxes and her interpretation of them. In my opinion even if you never made one of these boxes the book is a work of art.
