Inspired by traditional Japanese maku, the elegant wooden boxes used for measuring rice or beans, the boxes featured in "Fun with Folded Fabric Boxes" are simple and appealing. But "these" boxes are made using origami techniques and real fabric and paper, and they' re perfect for storing small items, for holding gifts, for giving as party favors, for serving as decorative accents, and for so many more uses. Funky or functional, lavish or spare, these folded fabric boxes can be made with fat quarters or special papers and embellished for a wide range of effects.

I find this book really neat with the styles of the boxes, and dimensions for changing the box size and the resulting proportion. I found I couldn't complete past making the second box because all the instructions referred back to the first box's instructions on page 19 and 20, but it didn't work properly with the other boxes that have a bit of an extra flap sticking out, even after multiple attempts to understand how the authors came to the finished product with the same look. If anyone is able to help, even though I have returned it, please message me. I am very interested in the other finished boxes.
