Make your Konstruktor unique and its first shoot unforgettable

After reading a lot of DIY tipsters in the magazine, I saw that the usual decoration of the Kontruktor wasn't unique enough for me. Read on to see how you can decorate your Konstruktor with the prints from the first shoot with your camera (or any other).

Pasadena85 inspired me, to decorate my Konstruktor with some picture prints. As I want to remember my first shoot with my Konstruktor and the fun I had, I chose some colorful picture prints from the first roll I shot with this camera.

All you need are some prints of your pictures, you took with the Konstruktor. Use some double-sided adhesive tape, like the ones used with rugs, a pair of scissors, a fine marker and if applicable, a ruler.

The drink and tomcat in the picture is not required.

Hold the prints and mark with the marker, where to cut, use the ruler to get some straight lines. Cut the print along the line so they fit the form of surfaces of the camera. Use the double-sided adhesive tape to apply the prints to the surfaces. Due to the double-sided tape, you can remove the prints without any trace, once you’re done with it.

Don’t be afraid to cut away too much, the black background of the Konstruktor hides this very well.

Just try it on your own and share your experience with us!
