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!



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. 



I ordered all courses from The Cartonnerie. 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 elevate my simple wedding stationery and pictures made a remarkable difference. I am looking forward to taking more courses with Sabrine and The Cartonnerie!
