Craft Idea: Turn a Cardboard Box Into a Replica of Your Camera

Marta Crass of Knoxville, Tennessee is quite handy with cardboard. She runs an Etsy shop called CisforCardboard that’s dedicated to her custom cardboard art. She handcrafts signs, wall hangings, letters, and anything else you can dream up… including cameras.

What you see here is a replica of Crass’ grandfather’s 1960′s era Nikon F SLR, created using ordinary pieces of cardboard.

If you find yourself with nothing to do on a weekend, or if you’re looking for a craft idea to do with a child, perhaps you could try your own hand at turning your personal camera into a cardboard sculpture.

Take a good hard look at Crass’ creation for ideas on how you might do so. She says her camera was completely hand cut out of 3/16-inch cardboard that was originally made from 40% recycled material. You don’t need any fancy laser cutter for this project — just a thick cardboard box, some creativity, and some patience.

Crass’ one-of-a-kind piece measures 6.5 inches long and 4.5 inches tall. As with many of her creations, the camera is for sale. There’s only one unit available, but the price might drive you toward the DIY route instead: the price tag on this cardboard Nikon F is a hefty $ 150.
