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.

I built a fold-flat (with interior!) version of +Dave Graffam Models $0.95 model: Pump House. After three versions, I think I found the right balance of simplicity and utility. Read all about it and get the cutfiles at the first link below.

This has been rebooted. Last time the surge came too late (but it ALMOST funded) so starting fresh with everyone who was in would certainly assure funding. I can't wait to get this mini.

It might be called something else, but you KNOW what this is!
Everyone needs a Tarrasque mini!

Here's some awesome postcard WWI flying plane papermodels by Fiddler's Green given to me by my friend and co-podcaster +Scott Moore​​. Thanks man! These are awesome. I don't think I'll ever cut them because of the cool backsides - but scan, print, machine cut (on thicker stock, I think), build, and maybe mount for use with Wings of War sounds about right...

Why would you ever have to cut them. Scan them Print them and cut those. But instead do like I do scan and/or dwnload and make them in 3d in Blender.org

The most recent character boxes for the Wednesday night game 5e D&D at +Games Of Berkeley. I'm playing this time with store manager Jose Rodreguez as the DM. He's uses critical hit/fumble cards and a cool replacement for Inspiration using a deck of playing card and optional different effects based on the denomination/suit. This puts a lot of power in the players hands to offset/complement some the the swinginess of the crit decks. I love it.
