Sizzix Tutorial | Camera Pocket by Aida Haron

Hello Crafties! I’m Aida and here today with an easy Sizzix Tutorial for a Camera Pocket.


Jen Long’s Card, Retro Camera is so cool and can be used in a few ways to make different projects. This time I’m going to show you how to turn the camera into a pocket for a small gift like a notebook or use as a party favor.


This is a close up. As you can see the camera’s body has been altered using the Dots Textured Impressions Embossing folder.


These are the Sizzix products I used.


To begin, I die cut these shapes in white card stock : 2 complete cameras, 1 partial body, 1 lens. Next I trimmed a piece of card stock 9 inches by 3 inches, then scored the longer edges half an inch in on both sides, and the shorter edges 2 inches in on both sides.


Here you can see how the partial camera body looks after running it through the Dots Textured Impressions Folder.


Color the long card stock and the partial camera body using any medium you like. I’ve used blue Gelatos with a little water.


The top half of the camera shape and the rim of  the lens was painted silver.


This is how the assembled camera front looks like. The rim of the lens was popped up using 3-D foam and strips of grey corrugated board were added to give the camera more dimension.


Fold the long piece of card stock to form a U shape and secure the bottom corners with staples or glue. The final step is to adhere the camera shapes to the front and back of the U shape to form a pocket. Inking the edges of the camera will give it more definition.


After this, all you need to do is decorate the camera with embellishments of your choice and fill the pocket with a gift. I hope you will try making this camera pocket, it’s so much fun and definitely appreciated by that special person.

Happy crafting !

Sizzix Die Cutting Supplies

I am Aida from Singapore. Over 10 years ago, a chance stop at a rubber stamping store started it all up. I learned how to stamp, created cards, and scrapbooks naturally extended from that point. In 2006, I began design work for Made With Love, a local scrapbook store in Singapore and true paper crafting took flight. My first introduction to Sizzix products was with the store as they become distributors of Sizzix. Eventually the role of In-Store Demonstrator for Sizzix products was added, and I design projects as well as teach classes incorporating Sizzix products. It is a huge honor to be with this team of incredibly talented designers.
