I have been visiting this section of the forums for a while now and have been amazed by some of the great work that has been accomplished. Seeing all of the tender love and care you all have put into creating your own custom boxes/covers for the Star Wars franchise (mainly the OT) has inspired me to make for myself my own custom set. I have also been working on my own edits of the prequel trilogy. So to go along with my edits I have made my very own box set that will eventually be part of a “Complete Saga” Set that will include the PT, OT and ST when all have been released.
The technique I have used is the same that Ronwlim has been using to make his sets found here: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/ronwlims-custom-bluray-casesbox-set/id/47474/page/4
which he got the idea here:
To construct the box I used black conservation board which I bought from Hobby Lobby that was 1/16 thick, but you can use any black core mounting board a suppose. After measuring the sizes I needed I then used a sharp Olfa knife to cut the board down to size. I then glued all the pieces together with superglue.
After designing the artwork, I used Elmers Craft Bond spray adhesive and applied the art to the box.
any and all comments or critiques would be appreciated
I haven’t finished the cover for ROTS yet so the picture shows my temp cover and the blank case will be extras/special features which I have not designed the cover to yet either. Though, any ideas would be much appreciated. If anyone would be interested in the files, let me know.
I will be updating this post as I finish the other 2 boxes and art work
