Maker Faire Inspired DIY Glasses Cases


 
Here at Zenni we’re all about the DIY spirit, as you can probably tell from infographics like this one, and there are few events in the world that capture the do-it-yourself attitude quite like the famous World Maker Faire in New York.
 
Labeled as “the greatest show and tell on Earth,” the Maker Faire is a hodgepodge of talented “makers” putting their wares on display and sharing knowledge and innovation. Comprised of techies, artists, engineers and craftsmen, the participants at the Maker Faire are truly an inspiring bunch.
 
In honor of them and this amazing event, which takes place this weekend, we decided to put together a blog post that features “makers” of a different sort. We searched the web and found some unique blogger tutorials for making your own glasses cases and they were so good that we had to share!
 
Check out the finished products below and be sure to click through to the full tutorials on each site.
