So what really put a smile to my face was when I figured out a solution that would work. And now suddenly the impossible and/or tedious now seemed possible. Here is a GIF of some packages in a 3D scene in Photoshop.

The textures are just placeholder for what I'll use these for in another project I'm working on for class. Now, if I can do this fairly easily, I can do much more with it! Precursor to a new tutorial, of course. I'm gonna mock up a box for that futuristic PET I made in the tutorial. Even though my method isn't perfect, it's far more flexible than the other methods I found and that always matters to me most.
