Default hinge for box

hi, I am making a core board box and I want to attach a hinged lid. Does anyone have any info doing this. I dont want to put on metal hinges but am not sure how to go about making and attaching cloth/cardstock hinges. Thanks

I was wondering the same thing. Here's a video tutorial I found on YouTube:
Tutorial - Making a Box with Hinged Lid from Foam Core - YouTube

I would have just cut the first cardstock part of the foamcore and left it at that. Diana's version is much better: sturdier and with more even edges.

Thanks for posting that great video. The gal is a great teacher and really explains things well. I've not worked with foam core board, but after watching the video I am intrigued. It looks like a lot of fun to make a box!

Just remember: sharp blades and make the cuts in three passes. The first cut is to slit the top posterboard material. The second cut is to slit the foamcore. The third cut is to slit the bottom posterboard. I got this info from a Carol Duvall show.

Could Tim Holtz grunge board work?
I've used it for book bindings and think it would be good for hinges too.

I was thinking of doing a "sewing box" cantilever box, and am still trying to decide on the handles. Then I saw a video (thanks to this site) on the differences between chip board, grunge board and grunge paper.

I think the grunge board would be too stiff. I would love to use some decorative punches for the handles, but the cardstock would be too soft.

But if we could find grunge paper it would be perfect - "bendy" but not "teary", and would hold up over time.

The one thing I don't like about the papertape is the color... it's going to show from inside the box when the lid is opened. From what I can gather, the grunge paper is a light grey (I don't know if it comes in other colors) that can be inked over.
