How to model a clamshell or blister pack

Does anyone here have a good technique for modeling a thermoformed plastic packaging insert? (i.e. a clamshell or blister pack) I have a model of a glass bottle provided to me by our customer. I used the deform tool with decent success. See photo. I'm just wondering if this is how it's usually done and if there is a better technique. For what it's worth, I am a structural packaging designer and this insert will be just one part of the overall package design.

Thank you.
