I am a student industrial product design and we had to make a cardboard packaging for this command. I have chosen to a cardboard jewelry packaging. Below you can see how I've gone to work.
Step 1: Needed Tools
- Glue gun
- Soldering iron
- Electric wires
- Cardboard (Waved 2mm)
- LED-strips (2x 20cm)
- Utility knife
- Glass knife
Step 2: Mirror
For the custom cutting a mirror you have a diamond glass knife needed. Notch a scratch on the mirror and break it gently. I use a size of 15 x 15cm.
Step 3: Unfolding/ Fold Up
On the above picture you can see my unfolding. The width and length is 20 cm, the height is 3cm. The lines where I want to fold there I'll a light scratch on cardboard making it nicely on the line folds. Then I glue all fold surfaces to each other with the glue gun.
Step 4: LED-strips
The LED strips to solder I an electric wire to the plus and the minus. Around the LED indicator color I black so that the led Strip is invisible on a black background.
Step 5: Mirror /led Holder
I also make a cardboard holder where the mirror and the leds come through. The holes where the leds come through must I make with a hole puncher.
Step 6: Mount /solderen Led-strips
The LED-strips adhesive I at the right distance from the edge. I solder the rest of the circuit with a switch and a battery. The wires run behind the mirror down so they are not visible.
Step 7: Stick Mirror
Then I paste the mirror on the space provided and clean it. Under the mirror is equipped with a kind of isomo that what the jewelry can be set. You can choose where you wich jewelry wants.
Step 8: Box
To top it all nice to store there is a box where the jewel box in fits and can be put away. The last picture is the full jewelrybox when its closed.
