Now, there's cardpunk - an alternative reality where all the cool stuff is made of cardboard.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
The materials were;
- The cardboard innertube of a roll of toiler paper.
- Some light cardstock
- Scraps of corrugated card
Step 2: Cutting
That's probably roughly 45o, but you could even trim the cut part of the frame to a curve to match the wearer's eye-sockets.
- To aid getting the lines even, I marked the high and low points, wrapped a piece of string around the tube between the two points, and then drew along the string.
- To make the two frames as similar as possible, I cut the sloped piece off the end the first frame came from, turned it around, and slid it over the other end of the tube as a template.
Draw around the frames on the cardstock - these circles will become the lenses.
Draw on numerous small thin tabs.
Pierce the cardstock many, many times with the pin.
- Make sure that the pin has a large head, or that you wear a thimble - that's a lot of holes, and a lot of wear-and-tear on your finger.
- Put a pad of paper towel under the cardstock, and a piece of scrap corrugated card under that, to allow you to pierce right through the cardstock without piercing yourself...
