commercial products are now available, for the occasions where an
item is a one off, of unusual size or makeup, or requires a very
particular packaging solution, a simply constructed, easily made
bespoke enclosure is usually possible. Paul will illustrate with
digital image sequences, simple demonstration and examples, some of
the solutions, construction methods   and little craft tricks   that
have been devised using paper, card and corrugated board to make
enclosures for a wide variety of paper items that have passed
through the paper conservation studio of the National Maritime
