The Stacker Stash Box
A Super Small Stash Box for Stacking Pieces
The Efran Stash Box
is small, the
Mini Stash Box
is smaller, and the
Stacker Stash Box
is smaller still.
It's the smallest stash box to date,
voluming in at a mere 6.125 cubic inches!
If anybody can make a smaller rectangular prism
box to hold one player's worth of Icehouse pieces,
I'd be happy to see it.
This box is a little longer than the Efran Stash Box (left),
but is half the width of the Mini Stash Box (right) without
adding any thickness! What's more, it doesn't need a tip saver,
so it takes a lot less time to construct.
- Card stock
- Adhesive lamination
That's it, essentially, except for micro-amounts of toner.
You will need:
- A computer capable of handling Adobe Acrobat files
- A printer capable of printing onto cardstock
- One piece of card stock
- One piece adhesive lamination, about 5 inches by 10 inches
- A scoring tool, I used a paper clip
- An exacto-knife, razor blade, or scalpel
- Glue (I like Duco Cement, but just about anything is fine)
- Two clamps of some kind, small binder clips are good
- Print the pattern onto cardstock.
- If desired, decorate the unprinted side of the cardstock.
- Laminate the unprinted side of the cardstock.
- Score all internal lines of the pattern.
- Cut all external lines of the patter.
- Fold all internal lines of the pattern with the printing inside.
- At each end:
- Fold the two short tabs in.
- Fold the long tab in, folding the extra bit over the top.
- Glue the extra bit into place on the inside.
- Clamp, and allow to dry.
- Fill with a stack of Icehouse pieces.
- Fold the top over, and tuck the extra tab inside the box.
