A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Boring Blazer? Tiresome Trench? Stupid Suit?
No need to rush out for a full-on makeover. Give your stale clothes a splash of character with a DIY Camera Brooch.
All it takes are a few supplies and your kindergarden coloring skills.
You’re just twenty minutes away from adding fashionable flair to your wearisome wardrobe.
WHY IT’S COOL
It’ll give any outfit a bit of personality! Plus, when you wear your camera love on your sleeve fellow photographers are bound to abrooch you to strike up a friendship.
STEP 1: Quick On the Draw
Sketch out your camera on the rough side of the plastic with a pencil. It should measure about 5 inches x 4 inches.
Not a great drawer? Print out a photo of a camera and trace it through the plastic.
STEP 2: Ink it Out
STEP 3: Coloring Time
STEP 4: Snip Snip
Cut the image out ensuring there are no sharp edges.
STEP 5: Now You’re Cooking
Now, place the picture on parchment paper on a baking tray.
Put it in the oven and watch as it curls and bends about. Don’t worry, it will flatten out!
STEP 6: Smoosh
Remove it from the oven and immediately place your li’l cam underneath that heavy book. Press down to ensure your brooch has a nice flat finish.
STEP 7: Rise and Shine
Varnish the plastic with a nice coat of gloss varnish.
STEP 8: Get Pinned
Leave it to dry (no, really do, or it will go all wonky) and you’re good to go. Lovely!
