Re: [BKARTS] Clam Shell Alternatives

There are instructions for making phase boxes, very similar to the Hedi
Kyle type enclosures at
While in libraryland these are very unglamorous enclosures, they can be
easily dressed up by using different materials...

Hello Everyone,

I'm looking for a cool and relatively easy box structure as a replacement
for clam shell boxes. I absolutely hate making clam shells-- mainly because
I find it frustrating and nearly impossible to cut so many small pieces of
binders board accurately. Hoping to find something fun and easy as a
substitute. Any ideas?

I loved the slip case structure that someone posted a few months ago. I
think it was a Hedi Kyle structure. It was softsided and very easy to make.
Something along those lines would be great.
