Just in time to be late for christmas, I finally finished the boxes for my acrylic “kaleidographic” toys for my nephews. The boxes only took 3 versions to get right! /s (I really need to loosen up my design tolerances).

Final materials: seven types of colored, frosted acrylics from Inventables; draftboard for the holders (painted black with kid-safe paint) and the packaging boxes; and ecofi felt for inside the boxes.

What a cool project! Professional details, down to the felt lining and safe paint. The score on the box too! Thanks for sharing that, enjoy the holidays :tada::evergreen_tree::gift:

Thanks! I see all the flaws (too much glue in all the wrong places, paper towel that stuck to the paint, etc), but I don’t think they nephews will care. *fingers crossed* :wink:

Nah, as the creator, odds are you are the only one who will ever know it. Besides, the blemishes announce it to be handmade with loving purpose as opposed to a sterile product of a factory that could care less.

I’m impressed by the variety of materials and all the steps involved to make this look so flawless. Your nephews will love it!
