Make Your Own Disposable Lens Hoods for Pentax Lenses

I don't know who started this meme again today, but Photojojo and Lifehacker picked it up and I might as well, too. There's a site that has outline drawings of various petal lens or round hoods, saved as PDF files, that you can print out, trace onto black construction paper, cut out, and fit onto your lenses. Paul Mutton started it at least a year ago, because it was mentioned by the BBC last May. Let me just say that this is one of the weirdest ideas I've ever seen.

Paper Lens hood for SMC-DA 16-45mm

Pentax lenses they have drawings for:

Pentax SMC 100mm f/2.8 D FA Macro
Pentax SMC 14mm f/2.8 DA ED IF
Pentax SMC 16-45mm f/4 DA ED AL
Pentax SMC 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DA AL
Pentax SMC 40mm f/2.8 DA
Pentax SMC 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DA ED
