My girlfriend hat a Chinese box with in it a few Chinese characters. The box looks like a book. So I wanted to try and make one too. She borrowed me the box and I could take a good look at it. Because I didn’t made one like this before, obviously I didn’t know the dimensions and how it works. But it seems easy to make. I wanted also to use a Chinese fabric and happily I hat one in my fabric closet. But whether the fabric was suitable, I didn’t know. Well, the box is finished but not quite succeeded. The fabric is not suitable for cardboard boxing. And the dimensions I have changed a little bit. But, for a try-out box it is Ok. The box ends in a closet, and only gets out when I will make another one, use it as a guild. Yes, that happens with 'bad' boxes. The never get out off the closet again. :))
But later on, I put the box in the antique desk off great grandfather. And, it looks good in here. So, for now it will remain here.
