We box a lot of things in the Conservation Lab. Linda Lundy, our resident box maker extraordinaire, has making clamshell boxes down to a science. Every once in a while something a little more complicated comes along, but there is no stopping Linda!
The Engineering Library brought us such a case recently. A student group has a tradition of having buttons made for their events. The Engineering Library wanted to show off their collection and store the buttons in something better than a plastic baggie.
Linda created a great display and storage solution for them. She created two partitioned trays for the buttons to rest in. Behind each button there is a small piece of foam so the button can be attached for display and storage.
Linda then created a clamshell box for both of the trays to live in. The resulting box was beautiful, useful for storage and doubled well for display!
