Quickie Tipster: Paper Craft with Lomo box

Recycle Lomo-boxes to make original and creative gift boxes.

My girlfriend Alessandra gave me the Diana Instant back for my birthday and in return I wanted to give her the first instant shot I took in a special way.

Evrytime I go Lomo shopping, I always keep those the marvelous boxes. Armed with scissors I made myself a little like matchbox as a gift box that look like this!

In the images you can see my creation and the paper craft pattern used. The photo frame was the empty canister of Fuji Instax Mini Film.

She was so happy! :-D

    I just tried it out and it's amazing! Took some fiddling, but I'm going to make another one of these for my bf's bday card! Thanks for sharing this!

    The stickers are made with an old embossing labeller by DYMO (no longer for sale!)
