Introducing my new 'TOUGHIE Camera collection'. I've been working on these papercraft templates over the past few weeks and now they are finally ready.

I called them 'TOUGHIE' because of how sturdy they look (while still being constructed of only paper/cardboard!). There are four different designs : Graph paper white, Denim blue, Rosebud pink and Floral pink + blue.

These little TOUGHIES also double as gift boxes/party favors/paperclip and pushpin holders etc because their 'lid' can come off easily.

I was inspired by LOMO's Diana camera (see THIS http://melstringer.blogspot.com/2011/02/boy-its-hot-today.html and THIS http://melstringer.blogspot.com/2011/01/lomo-world-tour.html blog post for when I was contacted by LOMOGRAPHY to personalise a Diana camera for their amazing Diana tour) and also an old Konica Minolta camera that I used to own.

I found that gorgeous little thing in a second-hand shop and ended up giving it away when I was moving home years ago. It took the craziest little photos that were always a dusty, light-streaked surprise. I keep wondering where it may have come from and what it might've seen in the past.
