Thanks a lot for the tut!!
I have a suggestion: Why not replace the mattboard by this thin plastic placemat material you get so cheap at the thrift store (Well, you do get them there in Germany..) Would make it all a little more stable..
I will try them soon

That's an interesting concept. I never tried that! The mat board is still really stable, but I never tried using plastic placemat. You'll have to share. Smiley

I have a few booklets on making fabric boxes like these - and I keep saying I am going to do it -  I think this post just made me want to work on some later this week.
Thanks!
I would love to hear how the plastic placemats worked out - I was thinking of using timtex instead or maybe plastic canvas... Not sure if those two would work - only one way to find out though, aye?

I think the timtex would work if you want a very soft box. The batting and fabric won't stick to the plastic canvas using this construction method. 
The matt board is extremely sturdy and will hold a lot of weight.
