Maybe your camera's wrist strap is lost or broken or maybe you just want to add a little extra flair to your favorite point and shoot. Either way, here's a quick and easy tutorial for making your own camera wrist strap.

I'm really excited that this tutorial is also being featured on the lomography blog. See it here. If you make the wrist strap, you can share your project on their site too.

P.S. Isn't my little purple camera adorable? Can you see the face? It's a dual lens Holga 135 Tim. The flash is equally cute and comes with different color filters.
