This article shows how to make a simple DIY splitzer for your Diana Mini using only a cap from an old medicine or vitamin bottle.
Have you ever thought of making a splitzer by yourself to save some money? Well, by using just the cap from an old bottle (preferably the one with the flap), we can make one by yourself! I was just in the process of throwing out my empty vitamin bottle. When I noticed the cap looks just about the right size for my Diana Mini, I decided to use it as a splitzer.
So I went to work. I used a pair of scissors and managed to detach the flap lid (because it would be obtrusive, but you could probably leave it on). I also stuffed some tissue paper inside because it wasn’t a perfect fit on the barrel of my Diana Mini. And that’s it! Check out the sample below!
You’ll notice that some part of the picture has a reddish hue. This is because the cap that I used was red so it probably got some of it when I took the first half of the picture. I suggest lining the inside of the cap with black tape or paper to avoid this effect and get perfectly splitted picture! Hope you guys are able to use this tipster!
