I found this magnifying glass in the office supply section of Wal-Mart for only .94. You can simply unscrew the handle to remove it.
Trace around your magnifying glass with a piece of chalk. Cut out the hole.
Make sure it fits snugly.
You do not want any light showing through around the magnifying glass.
You want as much light as possible reflecting out through the magnifying box not being absorbed inside the box.
Adjust for focus. You can move the box closer and farther away from the wall to focus it. You can also move the phone closer and farther away from the magnifying glass inside the box to focus it. Prop the phone up or make this easy stand for it from paper clips.
Here’s what my recipe looked like after I projected it onto the wall. Can you even believe it? A shoe box and an i-phone….
- Make sure your room is dark. I used the projector in a dark room to make sure the image showed up clearly.
- If you are using text you will have to create a mirror image of it and flip it upside down before you project it onto the wall.
