(Get ready to have too much fun!) Fold Play shows how to make a photo kaleidoscope (either hex or oct), which just might be one of the coolest--and free--ways to display your photos ever. Make one or a dozen and you'll amaze not only your friends but yourself as well with your cleverness.
To make one, you'll need:
- Photos of your choice
- An 8 1/2 x 11 piece of printer paper or lightweight card stock
- A ruler
- A boning tool (optional, but I'd highly recommend it)
- Glue (PVA works but rubber cement would be a better choice)
- This template at Fold Play
To put it all together, you'll need to do this:
- Upload the photos of your choice
- Print the results
- Follow the directions on how to put it together.
- And that's it!
After making a few, I'd suggest using lightweight card stock versus printer paper, which works fine, but the card stock will stand up longer and looks better, especially if you're making one for someone else.
I used PVA for glueing, but Fold Play's suggestion for using rubber cement might be a wiser choice.
Don't start manipulating your kaleidoscope until the glue is COMPLETELY DRY.
And finally, do yourself a BIG favor and watch the slideshow of the directions before you get started cutting and folding and such.
