The Pillow Box Minaudiere is a beautifully sleek box frame, totally customizable to individual tastes. It is therefore the perfect little clutch for a wedding, prom and even a fabulous alternative to flowers for bridesmaids, and are super quick to make.
The frame and shells will arrive separated. The Pillow Box shells come with 2 different size notches cut into them. Please note this is not a design fault. These notches allow you to add various personalisation options, for example, adding your own metal logo plate, or alternatively, attach the male or female part of a magnetic snap to the shell, and easily interchange with an embelishment of your chosing. Going to a wedding? Simply attach the opposite magnetic snap to your corsage and snap into place without any problem. If you would prefer not to use the notches, simply apply your fabric over the top of them as normal.
To adhere fabric onto the shells, it is recommended to sand the shells with a fine/medium grit sandpaper before applying a tacky glue, available here. The glue then needs to be left for between 5-10 minutes before applying your fabric choice.
The approximate sizes are 19.8cm in length and 11cm in height. Once the shells are covered and glued into the frame the approximate width is 4.3cm. It can easily fit an iPhone 8plus.
A good quality glue such as Gutermann HT2 Textile Adhesive, available here, should be used once the shells are dry, too adhere to the frame.
Matching 120cm shoulder chains are available separately here, however, due to the size of the fixing eye on these frames, a separate jump ring will be supplied. This needs to be added to the fixing eye before attaching the the shoulder chain.
