Photojenic's Collection of Amateur Foam Board Inserts.
I've seen lots of wonderful examples of foam board inserts on BGG, especially 28green's Geeklist, and so I thought I'd start a Geeklist of my (very) amateur attempts. I watched the excellent videos by UniversalHead, purchased some supplies and started making a few of my own.Recommend
My general list of supplies: Foam Board; utility knife with breakaway blades; 12 inch metal ruler with inch and cm/mm measurements; medium self-healing cutting mat; Aleen's fast-grab tacky glue; and sewing pins.
Entries below are the inserts I've made in chronological order, with pictures and lessons I've learned along the way. I won't be posting any specific details like measurements because I'm mostly winging each one, hence the "amateur" results.
I usually make them when the insert that comes with the box is either non-existent, doesn't really organize the bits very well (ie: slides all over the box), or if I add an expansion or sleeve cards and the original insert no longer holds the bits.
This list is mostly for me, but feel free to comment! Please check out 28green's Geeklist, who inspired me to create my own. Thanks!
