At the end of 2006
I decided to create a Star Wars DVD box set for all the six films of
the saga with cover designs and disk labels. The name of this
project is Star Wars Saga Edition, I used that title on the DVD box.
The box design are finished but I haven't finished the cover designs
The box consists
of two parts: an outer and an inner half like the official classic
(turned around; click on the pictures for enlarge)

After two years, I
have created the plans for my Star Wars Saga Edition DVD box.
According to the mails, I assume this update was the most wanted one
among my visitors. (Thanks for Mina because she gave me the original
plans I have changed.)
I have two
versions. The first one is a simple box with one opened side. The
second one is a double box like the classic trilogy DVD box – this
was the original plan. In this case it might be problematic to fit
the two boxes together, depending on the thickness of the cardboard
you use. I tried it with an X mm thick cardboard and it was okay. If
you want to use a thicker one, you need to enlarge the outer box
with 0.2-0.5 %.
Plans must be printed out in
the ratio of 1:1, the size given in the files.
No changes were
made comparing to the preview pictures except that I put my logo on
the bottom part of the boxes.
A small help for
the folding: you should fold all red edges back while the blue ones
should be folded up (to the black parts). The large black panels numbered 1-4 strengthen the two sides of
the box. The tiny black vertical flappers (5-6) cover these panels.
The smaller white flappers numbered 7-10 will cope over the inside
of the top and bottom sides. Flappers numbered 11-12 are the last
ones to fold; they will cover the small white flappers (7-10). This
way you will get a black edge in the inside of the box. The box is
strong enough therefore you do not need much glue, maybe some to strengthen the
black panels (1-4) and the black edges.
decided to make this box, please send me a photo to mail (at) simonz (dot) co (dot) hu.
I am curious to see them. Thanks a lot, and good luck.
