How to Make a Beaded Box for Beginners

Learn the most basic technique for making beaded boxes with peyote stitch: comprehensive instructions and video demonstrations

Are you someone who has been admiring beaded boxes?

But are you scared that you're not 'good enough' to make them?

Then, you're not alone. Which is why I designed this beaded box, put together the class, and have tested it with a few beaders just like you.

Because, you see, beaded boxes aren't as difficult as you might think. And, the only skill you need is a little basic knowledge of Peyote stitch. So, if you want to learn how to make beaded boxes, trust me, you can!

And if you don't trust me, then how about one of the ladies who has just tried this out...?

"This is amazing. I did the Peyote part with no problem. Katie's directions are brilliant and she was there if I had any questions." Dora

How will you learn?

You get a PDF tutorial which you can download. I have also included over 40 minutes of video demonstrations. So, you get to see all the techniques in action.

You can work in your own time, at your own pace. Plus, you get life-time access to this class, so you can come back over and over again.

If that sounds promising, then scroll to the bottom of the page and view the free introduction. You'll find out more about the project, the materials you need, and how the class works. Then, I hope you will be brave enough to join me and discover just how easy beaded boxes can be!

Hi! I'm Katie and I'm here to help you become a better beader. Now, no matter whether you've just started out or you've been beading for a while, you probably come across things you don't understand or can't do.

So, that's where I come in. I've been beading since 2003. I was self-taught originally, so I'm pretty sure that whatever 'pain point' you're currently experiencing, it's something I've also faced and overcome. Which means I understand your frustration, but I can also help you to find a way through it.

My own beading experience covers a multitude of different techniques (beadweaving, French beading, bead embroidery and more!). I've published books, patterns in magazines, I even edited a beading magazine for 3 years! And I'm a qualified teacher.

All of that is very nice, but it's not what drives me. I am passionate about beading, in all its forms, and I want others to share that passion. So, my dream is to help more people, like you, to get the most out of their beading. That's why I set up the 'Become a Better Beader' group and why I started publishing beading courses. I've developed the courses specifically to address the things that people tell me they are struggling with. So, if there's something you find difficult, let me know about it.

You can also access hundreds of free informational blogs about beading and join the 'Better Beader' group at
