Hey there! I figured it was time to make my return since it's been almost three years since I last touched DA, so here I have my latest project! The title says it all so there's no need to explain what it is.
But! If you were wondering what it was made of, like most people often do, it's mostly cardboard from Kashi brand cereal boxes. Additionally we have a lot of hot glue and superglue, which are used for more than just just adhesion, Scotch-brand heavy-duty packaging tape, and Mod Podge to finish for waterproofing.
Every part is made with multiple layers sandwiched together with adhesive to create surprising rigidity. Because of this, it actually functions as light armor! If you look closely at some of the photos you'll notice there's an irregular kind of bump by the wrist; that is a space which houses a mirror, used to reflect light into the camera and away from the flashlight. The assembly can be rotated for easier access and different orientations when taking pictures, and at certain points in that rotation, can be removed from the base. I've included a picture of the peg and the receiver to show you how it all works. If the case needs to be repaired or you want to put it in a different case for a while, you can undo the pin at the top of the case (made with a paperclip) and pop the top off to remove the phone. I've also included a picture of my messy workspace for good measure lol
In case you were wondering: not my first attempt at making a phone case, not the only thing I've been doing with cardboard over the years, and not the only medium of art I've been using in my absence
With that being said, I sincerely hope you guys take interest in what I've made, this is sort of the only place I can put it to puff up my confidence >.< Keep on making, guys!
