    Looks like a very cool technique. If you did it flat instead of a box, I think it would make a super envelope for a nook, ereader, Ipad etc. Thanks for sharing!

    question please..I realize you are not in the USA, but was wondering, if instead of using the hard batting, you could use something like Timtex or fast2fuse? They are the stiff interfacing used to make tote bags/purses!
