I’ve been doing some bookbinding and 3D-printing during the summer. One of the things I did, was to make a new box for my deluxe edition of Agents of S.W.I.N.G. which came in a huge archive box and took up way to much space in my bookshelf. I found a tutorial online and adapted it to my books.
Another thing was to hack Symbaroum’s game master screen, adventure and map to make sure that it wouldn’t crinkle and to give it some stability in my bookshelf. This was all my own recipe, but it works similar to a clamshell box, that is I made the folder pocket separately and glued it onto the cover.
I also found a nice little 3D printable box that fit perfectly for 6-sided dice. The item itself can be found here, and the instructions here.

That’s looking really, really nice. A lot of patience and passion went into that, clearly.
Do you have your own 3D printer?

Patience, yes. Passion… I guess that depends on what you mean by passion.
And yes, I’ve bought a MakerBot Replicator Mini. Desktop version. It’s SO MUCH FUN!

In my opinion passion can be large scale as well as small scale. You can be passionate about something and it takes up a lot of your time, or you can be passionate about a smaller thing and that passion dissipates once that small thing is accomplished. So like in this case your allowing a large scale passion (role playing games) to channel into a small scale project (this particular box) and you create that really nice box for the game, simply to make it easier to handle and to make it fit on your shelf. That’s a kind of passion imo.
