I've wanted to make my own for a while and finally got around to looking into how to make one.
Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe—Deluxe Collector's Edition seemed the perfect paper choice!
And I'm so pleased with myself because the stereoscope works like a charm!
Most of what I read suggested 3x lenses. I tried a few different magnifications and ended up using a pair of 4x's magnification reading glasses. Maybe it's because my eyes are a little weak that they worked better for me? Not sure, but I popped the lenses out of the frames, and simply glued them in place inside the viewer. Perfecto!
than a decorative item. There's a restrained trim, a couple of Antique Brass Stamped Metal Brads. But how perfect is that graphic from the Optical Oddities page of Olde Curiosity Shoppe?
Those stereocards? A vintage story of love told in a series of public domain images from a museum collection.
Because I think everyone should be as excited about stereoscopes as I am, I've put together a big fat tutorial for this project with three parts.
Here are all the other bits you'll need to create this project:
Antique Brass Stamped Metal Brads

This is just fabulous! It's a lovely replica of an old stereoscopic. I have my grandfather's stereoscope that he had as a lad, and a big stack of picture cards that go with it. It's amazing the depth those pictures have.ReplyDelete
