Check out these super-special Polaroid-themed greeting cards by Heather Champ. They’re made using two dark slides from expired Polaroid 600 film:
The five colour bars (celebrating the new PX 70 packaging) create a negative space heart surrounded by the idea of a instant film frame.
Once the front dark slide is cross-stitched, the front and back are dry mounted with rubber cement to folded white card stock. The inside is blank. The card is accompanied by a matching blank white envelope.
Try making these yourself as a do-it-yourself project. If arts and crafts isn’t your thing, you can buy them for a special Polaroid-lover in your life for $25 from Heather’s Etsy store.
Sure, you’ve got duster kits and lens cloths to boot, but what about your own body’s hygiene? Specialized soap-making duo Rob and Megan Green, better known on Etsy as Stinkybomb, have made this nifty camera-shaped soap for photo fans.
Like all of their soaps, the camera soap was created with a mold made from a real counterpart, an Olympus point-and-shoot modified to bear Stinkybomb’s logo. It’s amazing how much detail comes through in the soap version.
The soap is available in pink, yellow, green and more for $10 each from Stinkybomb’s shop.
There’s no app for this: Etsy seller Erin Paysse designed this pinhole camera out of an iPhone box. It’s been done before with an iPod box, but Paysse added a clean, retro touch to the camera. She’s selling the camera for $80, as well as some prints produced by the camera for $25.
Check out her store to see more creative pinhole cameras made out of boxes and books.

Hot on the heels of the latest Canon coffee mug craze, here’s another fun item for you to drool over: a Canon mode dial vinyl decal for your laptop.
