A good number of unique projects are included in Hiney's guide to creating ornate containers for gifts, personal use, or decorative keepsakes special enough to be passed along to a younger family member. Box-making instructions and illustrations are fairly easy to follow for Hiney's designs, which, to a degree, seem to echo the rich fabrics and textures of objects from the Victorian era. Provided for each project is a pattern that often requires enlarging. Even the most adept craft buff should be challenged by the lovely embroidery, ribbon flowers, and beadwork that embellish many of these unusual, attractive boxes. Alice JoyceFrom Library Journal:
Hiney's elegant fabric-covered and fabric-trimmed boxes are made entirely from scratch. Her projects include patterns for making the boxes from cardboard as well as instructions for coverings and embellishments. A great variety of shapes are found in these projects, showing the advantage of not having to depend on a purchased box as a foundation. The boxes include seashells, hearts, scallops, and cylinders in addition to the usual rectangles. They make perfect treasure boxes and are sure to be cherished.
