So here's how it started - I went a little crazy one afternoon last week and bought myself a lovely new IXUS 70. So tiny and perfect.... imagine my joy! But then frustration set in - the SD cards came in big clunky plastic cases - four of them together are almost as bulky as the camera itself - what I really needed was a nice slim card holder to slot into my wallet.
sarCastro's Instructable was my first port of call. It's a good shot at the problem, but I needed something a little more sturdy and a little less prone to accidents with my clumsy big man-hands. So on with the inventor's hat...
Step 1: Attempt #1 - Cutting and Gluing like there's no tomorrow...
While it works pretty well, it doesn't stand up to much wear, and the cutting and gluing is kind of fiddly. So scratch that attempt - if anyone wants to refine the prototype, or would like an Instructable for it, let me know.
So onward to Attempt #2, the one that I'll show you how to build...
Step 2: Ingredients
business cards, credit cards, playing cards, or just pieces of generic card.
1 piece of craft foam the size of your chosen card
Every home should have some. Available at craft suppliers and stationers everywhere. Sometimes available as cheap off-cuts.
In my experience this stuff is normally the same thickness as an SD card, but check to be sure.
