To make this mini-camera, you'll need a box of matches, a used toilet paper tube, a pair of scissors (or an x-cut), a pen and some tape. (Be advised, this camera doesn't really take pictures!)

Step 1: Instructions

Draw, using the toilet paper tube, a circle on one of the sides of the match box's outer box. Do the same thing on the inner box and cut out the circles using the scissors or x-cut.
This is awesome :)))
Well done, the camera looks very nice!
thank you Kaptain Kool! :)
this is sweet and creative. i enjoy projects that encourage me to draw more, or inspire me to be more creative. i really like the illustrations and general art style. do any of you have any of your art online?
hello! thank you so much! yes, you can find some of our "art" here, if you like: http://mrspoqui.blogspot.com/
excellent, thanks! please post any new projects you have. i think they will be great, probably.
Have you thought about adding a pinhole to it so it can take real pictures? There are various things around the web about matchbox pinhole cameras and I think it would make a really nice addition to this project...
thank you! good suggestion!
Good Idea~
