Magic Deck Box

 

ABOUT:

I have wanted to create a project that people could download and make themselves for a while now. However creating the templates and instructions means you have to simplify the design significantly. I decided to do something that was not very complex and made a deck box for the card game Magic: The Gathering. Not wanting to keep it too simple I made it look like an ancient tome. The finished product can hold 75 cards and is very solid. Make sure to read the instructions before printing.

BUILD:
This was a different approach for me than usual. I had to design the box so it would fit on 8.5 X 11 paper and I wanted it to use one sided printing. I went through about 5 prototypes before I found one I was happy with. I then created the blueprints and textures for the project. This was a great deal of fun and allowed me to flex my Photoshop muscles for a change. It's also unfortunate that most Papercraft projects have poor documentation, so I tried hard to make the instructions easy to follow. So grab the files and build yourself a new box to hold your cards for the next tournament.
