This is a very cute charm that is perfect for any photographer or loomer! I made it on behalf of my friend 103366, who has made looming instructables that are very unique! Check out her profile! So thank you 103366! If you have a habit of taking selfies, just take them on this! I hope you like it=).

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Step 2: Double Bands

Go down five times in the middle. To close off your camera, follow the pictures.

Step 5: the Lens

For the lens, take three clear bands and wrap it around your loom pick 2-3 times. Three times makes your lens tighter, and two times will make it looser. I did it three times.

Step 6: Cap Band

Take a single clear band and wrap it around the peg shown 3 times. This acts as the on and off button and allows you to loom!

Step 7: Red Band

Take a single red band and wrap it around your hook 3-4 times. Then slide it onto double black bands and place on your loom as shown.

Step 8: Finishing the Lens

Place single bands as shown in the first picture. Then place your clear bands on the middle peg of the two as shown in the second picture. Go inside of your clear bands and grab the band that goes forward, hooking it forward. Do the same to the band that goes backwards. Then create a slip knot on each side by bringing the bottom layer of each one over itself and pulling tight. For all of you visual people, look at the pictures for help.

Step 9: Starting the Looming Process

Start at the bottom of your camera. Go inside of the clear cap band and grab the first two, which should go to your left. Then go inside again and grab the next two, which will go forward.

Step 10: Loom Some More

Now take a single band a create a slip knot at the top of your loom as shown. This acts as your wrist band on a real camera and holds your camera together.

Step 17: Your... Camera?

When you take your camera off of your loom, it will look very messy. It's time to tidy it up!
