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!

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 hope to purchase additional courses in the future.
