So I made a slew of miniature 3-D movie glasses yesterday, as I am prepping another little exhibit. (More on that in an upcoming blogpost.)
These glasses were fairly easy to make, albeit a bit time-consuming.
I found a template for the glasses online, and messed around with it a bit on Photoshop for sizing AND to put a billion on a page.
Printed off a sheet of glasses onto white card stock and cut them out, even cutting out the lenses. Did I have to do this? Could I have just let the printed colors of blue and red suffice? Yeah, I could have. But then you don't get the transparent quality, and you can't see the puppets' eyeballs behind the frames, and you HAVE to have that.
So, to achieve that: a piece of Scotch tape on the backside of the glasses -- trimming was necessary.
THEN: coloring (on the non-sticky part of the tape) the lenses using ultra fine point Sharpies in aqua and red.
That's it! Done!
