What Is A Box Pleat Valance: A Box Pleat Valance is a tailored treatment that works well with many design styles.  This treatment consists of equally spaced inverted pleats.  The treatment is mounted onto a board.  Typically, pleats are 12” spaced 12”-16” apart across the face of the treatment. For interest pleats can be made out of a contrasting fabric or a welt can be attached to the top of the valance.

 In addition to box pleat valances instructions, we also offer: box pleat balloon shade patterns, pinch pleat drapery patterns, rod pocket drapery patterns, roman shade patterns, parafold roman shade patterns, and scarf swag patterns
