I’ve said this before, but in the wake of the viral success of Pokémon GO, it needs to be said again. Augmented reality is just a virtual world, an MMO, a MUD even, with all of the same design issues, plus a few new ones. The goggles fallacy [pullquote] I…

+Kev's Lounge has new minis out: Out of the Wild

http://www.rpgnow.com/product/187731

I made them and printed them with my new Epson Ecotank printer on Epson Premium Photo Paper and got great results!

So then I made and printed/cut character initiative tokens for them as well (and I'm sharing those here with you all!)

I love me some +TombowUSA ABT Dual Brush pens for edging my papercraft - and recently +Blick Art Materials had a sale so - I expanded my collection.

After gathering all those that I had in the 3 places I stashed them I found about 60 pens, all with lovely colored lids. I wanted to store them tilted and easy to access - so decided to experiment and to if I could make a sturdy box out of only cardstock. Here are the photos of the process (and the images of the templates.)

If you look closely at the black template (I made 20 of these) - they create a 9 x 9 grid of 1/2" pen-holes. Note the alternating cuts for connecting each segment together. If that is a little confusing (like "wha? how can that work?") - you are not alone. It took me a moment to figure out how to assemble it: You weave it together as you insert each sheet. You know, "over, then under..." You know what's cool? This 81 segment insert folds flat (two ways!) That's how you know you made it right. :-)

I used +Darice "Black Cat" solid-dyed core cardstock that is denser than 110lb/200gsm index stock. Because I used my +Silhouette America cutter (and the pattern in included below), the weaving did not cause tearing.


For the outer box I used +BCW Supplies Magazine boards. Which is a super heavy stock. It has a glossy side, so you can print a design on it and your box would look more awesome than this prototype.

If you want to duplicate this work, I've got the files here:

NOTE: I wouldn't attempt this without a cutting machine to cut the 20x segment template copies - you really want them to be precise.
