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 three courses from The Cartonnerie: the folio, the portfolio with screws and the box with fitted lid. 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.
