LEARN HOW TO CRAFT BOXes & cartonnage designs

TO ELEVATE YOUR creative WORK or learn a new craft

Cartonnage is the art of crafting boxes and cartonnage designs with its origins in the 18th Century.

Since 2003 I have been reinventing the artisanal savoir-faire of cartonnage

in respect of the traditional techniques inherited from the master makers of the 18th Century


Courses box making and cartonnage

Hi, thank you for your interest in my beautiful craft!


started The Cartonnerie in 2003. I always wanted to do something creative, but I spent a long time searching for what kind of creativity, until I went to a box making workshop, also called 'cartonnage'. I've been making boxes and cartonnage designs by hand in a traditional way ever since.


I love to teach you how to craft your own boxes and cartonnage designs. To complement and elevate your creative work or learn a new craft.


Enjoy crafting,

I loved every part of the course from The Cartonnerie! From when the supplies arrived, packed so beautifully and then to follow the instructions that were so easy to understand and the end result is just gorgeous. I love my box and will definitely keep making them.



Your courses have helped me refine my skills of cartonnage over the last several years which in turn have also helped me teach my assistant as well! I love being able to create everything bespoke for my couples, even their keepsake boxes!



Sabrine's course is fantastic! I was hesitant to invest the money into something I felt I could figure out on my own but I'm glad I made the purchase. Her instructions are detailed and the video is soothing to watch. I've made several of the hinged boxes and they turn out beautiful due to her course.

I will definately purchase additional courses in the future.


Sabrine's courses are amazing! They are very easy to follow, along with the instruction videos and handouts. It might take some more time if you decide to create a hinged box in a different size than the course (like I did right from the start, as I wanted to challenge myself a bit having some experience in bookbinding), but she gives all information you need to know to create beautiful packaging. I truly love this craft and am inspired to keep creating more!



The journey in learning these new skills has been absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend it. The video and picture pdf guide were a perfect bundle to guide a course taker through the entire project. They were clear, concise and easy to understand. The final products look beautiful! Being able to give a touch of elegance|luxury, and overall elevating my simple wedding stationery and pictures made a remarkable difference.
