You couldn’t resist a peek! We wouldn’t be able to either.
For July’s kit, with materials including these…
This is what we’ll be making.
It’s copper embossing!
To make this pretty copper-embossed wooden box, you’ll take a sheet of copper and use an embossing tool to outline and develop the pattern, before affixing to your pre-made wooden box lid. All the tools and materials are in your kit.
We’ve collaborated with the wonderful illustrator Carole Fenwick of MaggieMagoo Designs, who’s created this patterned template for you. Inspired by the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A this Summer and with a strong nod to Mexican tin folk art, Carole’s distinctive floral illustrations are a perfect match for the project – and we love how it’s come out!
It takes an afternoon to make this project, and is a nice easy introduction to working with metal.

Here’s what folk have said about us…
I couldn’t be happier with the February Craftiosity box as it was such a fun project, I have a great end product and the tools to use again. I think it’s a fantastic and unique subscription box that I know will be a hit with so many people! 9.2/10Heather
It was such a treat! The kit came beautifully packaged, I was little daunted when I saw the instructions for stitching the book together but it was actually really well explained and if I’d got stuck I could have watched a video for extra help.Leigh
A lovely box was handed to me by my postie (it’s too large to fit through the letterbox) which got me really excited. There’s something lovely about creating with your hands and I enjoyed sitting and making the pots.Jenny
