DIY Printable Vintage Box Cameras on Etsy

Etsy DIY Camera

Box cameras no longer need to be a thing of the past thanks to Etsy seller and camera obsessor Girlie Pains.  She has designed these printable Vintage Box Cameras so you, too, can enjoy the nostalgia of classic cameras such as the Brownie, Bakerlite, and Ensign designs.

Each box camera is printable onto a single piece of paper, fashioned with a rich vintage color and small handle on top, true to the original camera designs.  Because they’re made on paper, the cameras are easy to customize to your liking.  They would make great party favor boxes, afternoon crafts with the kids, or a sweet decoration for a child’s room.

The cameras measure 2.6 inches high and 2 inches long, so they make tiny accents to a space.  They come in beluga blue, badger black, bear brown, and gator grey — great masculine vintage hues.  The best part is you don’t have to wait for a package to arrive – Girlie Pains simply emails you a PDF of each design, usually the same day, and you’re off to construct your box cameras with the help of only a printer, scissors, and glue!

You can purchase the PDF for Vintage Box Cameras for only $4 on Etsy.
