The lenses were purchased in China and I'm afraid that the seller won't ship it to the US... These lenses are dirt cheap in China, if you are a retailer. You can actually get them for 1 CNY each (minimum quantity: 100 pairs). These retailers are really draining every bit of your life!As for the strap, I bought it in the same shop. However, I believe that you can make it without any aid. It's consists of two pieces of velcro to stick on both sides of the cardboard, and a long elastic band with loops on it. You can achieve the same effect by sewing two pieces of velcro on to the two ends of the strap.I made a tremendous mistake when choosing the velcro: I used the 3M Dual Lock instead of normal velcro. Now every time I put my phone into it, it feels like I have to break the thing up...
Mine is made using the box for my graphics card, which gives the final work a sense of coolness. I added a custom strap and also changed a little bit of the design. I cropped the inner and middle layer so it won't get too cramped.Also if you are using a pair of 37mm lenses, you can trash part No. 3, because nearly all the lenses on the market have supports to fix them.
