Matchbox Week: Camera Matchbox

I used my own camera for inspiration! The front: (2) 1/4" Circle punches on the left side of the lens (which are 1-1/4" + 1-1/2" Circle Punch). The "flash (5/8" x 1/2")" has a dimensional behind it and "view finder ( 3/16" x 3/16") are hand cut. Top of camera: 3/4" punch + 1/2" punch used along with 1/4" punch positioned as shown.

Yes, even the back of the camera has a display (1-3/4" x 1-3/8", use corner punch on each corner. The button is a 1/2" Circle Punch + (2) 1/4" punches. The Slot punch is in the upper right corner. The "view finder" is the same size as the one in front of the camera.

Here's what's inside: Photos!

Here's the accordion folded Black & White photos. It is 2-1/2"x11", score @1-7/8". Edges are sponged with black ink. The Pink hearts complete the project.

I know it might be rude but I wanted to ask how you use the thing in the middle in the photo where you show the supplies (the black thing). (if you don't want me to use your project just don't answer)

I wanted to make something special for someone special but I discovered my inspiration left me and the only thing that caught my attention was this album :)It's wonderful!

(I usually don't go writing comments asking like that and I realize it's a bit rude so sorry :(
