Foam Box for Endoscope Camera

Foam Box
        Hi friends, one of my crafty resolutions for the year is to make more home decor and functional crafts.Many of you who visit me will be knowing I am an ENT Surgeon.The photo below shows part of my "patient examination unit" at my clinic.
The Patient Examination Unit at my Clinic
       Endoscopes form a very essential part of ENT examination these days and recently the thermocol box housing my endoscope camera head broke [ shown by the white arrow] and I decided to use my craft supplies to make a DIY box !
Foam Box
          Endoscope cameras are very expensive and I needed to make a box which was both sturdy and soft! I lined an old mobile phone packaging with foam sheets both on the inside and the outside. For additional protection I added several pads of packaging sponge within the box.
Foam Box
        I made a wedge on the front of the box for the camera wire to exit and this part was also lined with the foam sheet. 
Foam Box
          I kept the embellishments to a minimal with just a few heat embossed parchment flowers and  die cut lace borders in silver cardstock.
          Though from a crafty point of view it is such a simple box...I felt so gratified once it was completed!!What do you say my friends?

  13. Apart from being a very pretty box Soniaa, it will be so functional as well and perhaps give patients a little welcome distraction from the usual but essential clinical atmosphere.

  24. What a gorgeous box Sonia!! I agree, I have decided to also stick to more functional style crafts as well, too many oddball things up in the closet that really have no use whatsoever! This is not only gorgeous on it's own, but it will look amazing on a desk or dresser! Love it! hugs :)
