Papercraft Cameras

I stumbled upon these pretty paper cameras while checking out 
the pretty things on Paper Crave {there is just something about
 paper, cards and such stuff that make me smile like a crazy person}
and had to share them with all of you. 

The art of papercraft {click here, here and here for a taste of 
what it really is or just google papercraft} was introduced
 to by an ex-collegue of mine. He gave me several PDFs and 
all I needed to do was print the PDFs in colour, cut it with a blade 
and then fold and glue the appropriate places and
*tada* I would have a 3D papercraft item.
Note: This is a very delicate form of folding but it's quite interesting.

So for the record, I have not done one yet... but am considering 
to do one for my new home. So scour the interweb I shall for
something suitable for the Love Nest.

Anyways, back to the paper cameras, I just loved the cameras and
loved the retro cameras that Mel Stinger, owner of 
The Stringer's Lil Shop has created. 
They look super cute and fun to make.

It's only been now that I realise that there are seriously so many 
forms of arts and crafts... honestly super endless and time 
consuming. However, as I said in my earlier post on things to do in 
2012, I have to start 'creating art' so I will take things slow, take a 
deep breath, not worry so much about the outcome {ugly or 
otherwise} and just enjoy the process of  creating something. 

Happy crafting all! *smiles smiles*

These cameras are gorgeous! You're right; it is amazing how many types of arts and crafts there are out there. I want to try them all but usually just end up drooling over pictures & dreaming. :-)

Yes. I drool and never end up doing much else! :)
