For the proud smartphone photographer who wants to show his or her skills to the world on a budget, Photojojo has a how-to guide to create a budget photo projector.

All you need is a shoebox, a magnifying glass, a paperclip, an X-acto knife and the handyman's secret weapon, duct tape. You mount the magnifying glass on the end of the shoebox and place your smartphone inside. The important part is making sure light doesn't get out, and that the environment is dark enough.

The biggest appeal? The cost of materials only comes out to a few dollars, and it's easy enough that anyone can do it. Of course, you need to provide your own smartphone. A step-by-step guide can be read on Photojojo's website.
