  • Description

Cartouchage (also cartonne/carton) is an old passementerie term for card shapes covered in silk. These shapes are often seen as tassel embellishments, creating petal shapes over the tassel.

They are also used to create rosettes and other embellishments, as well as for free standing ornaments such as flowers.

Everything you need to make up to 16 stunning passementerie floral motifs.


  • Perl wire
  • Foundation card shapes (16 floral shapes plus 6 centre circles in two sizes)
  • 6 colours cotton thread
  • Full instructions

These pretty little motifs can be added to tassels to create bolster style rosettes or decorations, made into dress ornaments and jewellery, or used as toppers on cards.
