Download and print our outlined template to trace the camera in the correct dimensions and print the patterned template (preferable on sticker paper) and keep aside.
Cut out the outlined template and trace it on a piece of cardboard. Keep your paper on the cardboard and use a box cutter to cut out the lens of the camera.
Cut out the dotted lines. Use a box cutter and make a light cut on the fold lines, to make it easier to fold. Do not cut through.
Now glue the stickers on the cardboard.
First try if your paper roll fits in the round cut out. If not, make it smaller and secure it with a stapler. Now glue the last sticker around the toilet paper roll. place it in the camera.
Make small holes on the left and right side of the camera. Pull the string through it and make a big knot on the inner side to secure it.
Assemble the camera with doubled sided adhesive tape.
