Papercraft Glasses Have Manually Operated Papercraft Irises
Back in the 3rd grade, I was given a pair of glasses to wear. My eye doctor was a mad scientist so he gave me some nice bifocals. That’s right, bifocals, in third grade. Of course, I can’t blame him for the double bridged frames that I picked out. Needless to say, I never actually wore them after the first day. If he had given me these awesome papercraft glasses though, it might have been a different story. Made by art.makes over at Instructables, these glasses –made entirely out of paper– not only make you look like Arthur, but also have papercraft irises that you an open and shut for, well, for fun.
With just a little paper, a mailing tube, some string, a hole punch, a little bit of glue, an xacto knife, paper and cardstock, and about 3-6 hours of spare time, you can build your very own pair by following the step-by-step guide on Instructables, if you’re into that sort of thing. Then, when you’re done, maybe you can try to sell them to Lady Gaga or something. Seems like an accessory she might be into. Maybe if you made them out of meat…
