Loving arts & crafts and Lomography is a perfect match made in analogue heaven! With all the small parts involved with the former though, it’s quite hard to keep things organized. Luckily, we still have all these film canisters from shooting our film rolls! Here’s what you need to do:


  • Film canisters
  • Craft knife
  • Hot glue


  1. Draw a line on the sides and bottom of the canister. Around the middle should be good.
  2. Using the craft knife, carefully cut away the other half.
  3. Attach them together using hot glue.
  4. Put the lid back on.
