Next we need to make the viewing window. Cut out a 50mm x 50mm square near the bottom of the milk carton.

To hold the mirror in place, position the mirror so that it sits between the piece of cardboard and the Makedo Lock-hinge. Connect the Lock-hinge to the cardboard using a Makedo Re-clip. This will hold the mirror tightly in position.

Step 5: Connect

Ensure that your Lock-hinge sits at a 45 degree angle when you place it in the milk carton at the viewing window. To check if the angle of the mirror is correct, look through the viewing window at the mirror and adjust it so that you can see the ceiling through the top of the carton.

Step 6: Connect

Step 7: Build

Repeat steps 1-6 for the second milk carton. Finally, slot the second milk carton on top of the first ensuring that the viewing windows are facing in opposite directions from each other. Your Makedo Periscope is now complete! Be a detective and use it to spy around corners.
