Day 16: Something that goes over an eye

Make something inspired by and/or that goes over an eye (yours or someone else’s).

Obviously the only thing that I could consider doing for this challenge was to make some papercraft Kanye glasses.


Here’s how to make your own in five easy steps:

  1. Scan your sunglasses (for correct sizing later on).
  2. Create a cut-out image. (Source some reference images, scale to fit the scans of your sunglasses, and trace an outline.)
  3. Send the cut-out image to an electronic cutter. (Or print it off and then cut it out with a knife.)
  4. Assemble Kanye glasses.
  5. Adorn your eyes with said glasses and become infinitely cooler.

Here are some process shots:

Note: Day 16 was meant to be making unique prints by cutting up a potato or sponge, but we’re flat out of both of those items. So we’ve once more swapped days. Look out for potato prints tomorrow!
