Living Hinges:

Living hinges (Kerf cutting/bending) This is a technique that has traditionally been associated with woodworking that allows you to bend the wood around a corner, as opposed to having separate pieces and a joint. As well as being a good practical solution it is also very aesthetically pleasing. This technique also works for bending acrylic sheets.
