Project 1 for 3D Packaging: Put yourself in a box. A four-inch box, to be precise.
Well, if I'm going to fit in a box that small, it'd better be a mighty good-looking box!
It didn't take long to decide that the box's design needed to include my dawnshield logo, and I quickly decided I wanted it to glow from within. That put more constraints on its design; I needed to fit a battery case and an LED inside, while still using a tapering design. In addition to the cardstock paper, the LED, the batteries, and their case, I ended up buying a soldering kit and teaching myself soldering for this project. You never know where a design will take you, I guess.
(Later on I discovered that I could have just taped a watch battery to the LED, which would have made things a lot easier. Ah well, the light will last longer this way!)
