bonjour! camp orders are still my main focus this week. pretty soon we'll be packing trunks here, too. but first, one lucky girlie got to go off on a school trip to france. as we finished packing her up the night before she left, i realized i'd wanted to get a lens cap keeper for her camera, but forgot all about it. mine are so handy, but my lenses are bigger, so i couldn't borrow one from my camera easily. because she's my kid, she said, why don't you make one? duh! one of the best side effects of paper crafting and supply hoarding is having a variety of materials at my disposal for just such problem solving. so, between the two of us, we figured it out. we gathered an emmy jay, some cotton cording, a pop dot, washi tape on cardstock, and a half inch circle punch. tie, cut, stick, stick, and voilà! not just any lens cap keeper - a cool, colorful diy lens cap keeper!
and with that, she was ready to go. i've even seen it put to good use in a few pictures she's sent. i may not get to be in france with her (quel dommage!), but i will definitely replace my stretched out cap keeper with one of these super cute, fancy diy ones, and be just as cool as she is!
