Lomo Recycling


This is why I always want my Lomo orders as a present!

I like to store things… (a kind of Diogenes syndrome, but with all the small things, some useless and others that I collect), and everything is always full of things: my table, drawers, bookshelves…

Therefore, my way of keeping all those things is to buy boxes or reuse some that I already have.

I also keep negatives in their boxes. I used to keep them in a shoebox, but it was getting bigger and bigger, so I needed more storage space. And what a better way to keep your graphic treasures than to place them in a small thematic Lomo box?


You just need:

  • Wrapping paper from the Lomo-shops.
  • One box to cover (mine was a gift pack of cologne from Christmas, and they gave me two!).
  • Scissors
  • Transparent tape
  • Transparent covering plastic.

You’ll spend a good time, cutting the paper, adapting it to your box, covering it with the transparent plastic (and all of this, with your cats gossiping, stepping and sniffing around).

And all your negatives, films, or photos will be protected within their new small house!
