Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

Shoe box

Magnifying glass

Hot glue gun

Extra card board for phone stand

That's it!

Step 2: Making the Projector

Remove the top of the shoe box.

Place the magnifying glass on one of the ends of the shoebox and trace the outline of the magnifying glass with a pencil.

Once the outline is complete remove the glass and cut out the area you just traced. Save the cut out piece for later.

Now place the glass in the cut out hole and hot glue it to the shoe box.

Cut out a piece of cardboard the height and width of the shoe box for the phone holder.

Cut out two more small pieces of card board the width of the box and about 1/4 the height of the box to make the holder.

Hot glue the two small pieces together and glue it to the big piece of cardboard and place you phone one top.

Now put the top on the box, use the outline of the glass piece to cut the extra cardboard off the top.

Step 3: Finishing Touches

When using the projector put your phone on rotation lock and when playing your video put the phone upside down.

Put the top back on and play your video in the dark.

Hope you enjoy this!!

I is not working why?

try moving the holder closer or farther away to get better focus. Remember to put your phone on lock rotation so the movie is upside down. That is all I can think of it worked for me. Best of luck
