A charming assortment of one-of-a-kind miniature boxes in a variety of shapes for all skill levels.
Julia S. Pretl offers crafters her original method for creating decorative beaded boxes and lids in a wide range of surface designs and shapes. Working only with cylinder and seed beads, needle and thread, crafters can create an impressive array of clever and colorful miniature containers. With step-by-step illustrations and easy-to-follow word graphs and patterns, Pretl leads the reader through the techniques for creating three-sided, five-sided, and six-sided rectangular, square, and stacked boxes. Four-color photographs of each of the 12 designs introduce each set of instructions. Detailed drawings illustrate the beading techniques.

Pretty clear directions, though checking on Pretl's website reveals that there are mistakes in the patterns. Still, very worth reading, and a fun new technique that I'm intrigued by. Read full review
