Lomo Recycle: A Paper Egg Box!

When my grandma came back from the supermarket, I wanted to keep the egg box. She asked me: "What do you want to do with it?", and I said that I didn't know, but something came to mind. Can you guess what I thought?

Ta-daaaa! A film box!

You may have to push the film canister a little to make it fit perfectly (unless you buy very big eggs!), and don’t cut any part of it, so that it doesn’t open if you take it with you in your suitcase or backpack!

I wanted to make it a little more coloured, but I’m not a great artist, so the result could be a little better, I think… I used pencils, but I think that acrylics work better! Let me know if you have Lomo ideas on how to paint it!

    Tearing the top off and tacking it to the wall in your darkroom would be a nice solution for storing film out of the way if you had enough egg crates.

    Great idea! I just love having large amounts of films/film canisters! Now there's another awesome way of storing them! Hooorray!

    Good idea! You could just spray-paint it.It's fast and cheaper than acrylics. A metallic spray would give a really cool effect! You could, also, do paper masks to imprint letters on it.
