Film Roll Christmas Letters

Here's a quick tipster on how to create a Christmas letter or card using an empty roll of film.

What you’ll need:

  • Unused negative roll of film (you may also use gift wrapping paper)
  • Am empty roll of film.
  • Magazine / Colorful papers
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided tape

Step 1: Trace the film pattern on a negative roll or gift wrapping paper with a pencil. Use an unexposed roll to trace out the tongue part of the film. Length of the strip depends on how long the message you want to paste on it. Cut between the lines. I used a blank roll of exposed negative so don’t call me mad.

Step 2: Cut out letters from a magazine. Decide on the message you want to express and once dress up that negative film in time for the season. As you can see in the image, I used different materials in dressing up the strip of negative film. Stick them on the negative roll with double sided tape.

Step 3: Tape the end of the negative film to the film sticking out on the empty roll, wind the roll.

There you go! You may now give it to your friend. (And take it back if they’re done reading it for DIY Redscale purposes. Haha!)
