Introduction: Homemade Document Camera

This is a simple and easy way to make a document camera with some household items, this also has a face view. (Does require phone)


This craft will require a decently sized box (untouched), scissors that can cut through cardboard, and some decently sturdy tape.

Step 1: Put a Hole on the Side of the Box

Some boxes already have handles where you can put holes through them but if you don't have that then you can cut a hole through it with scissors.

Step 2: (Optional) Cut the Sides on One Side of the Box

This will give you some more usage of your hands, if you cut the sides and the top of one side of the box it will let you move your hands around a little bit with you taking away writing space.

Step 3: On the Other Side Bring a Top Piece Up and Tape.

This is for the face time picture. You can prop the phone up to the top piece and it'll stick if you prop it up like the example on the picture.

Step 4: Enjoy Your New Document Camera!

You can do whatever you want with it now, you can decorate it so that it looks better, but other than that you can use it to record whatever you want.
