My Light Box


First off you have to nab an empty box from work, there will be plenty of these kicking about, usually beside the printers.If not, I'm sure your local supermarket will oblige.
Cut out the two sides and top leaving a frame.









You are now supposed to cover the cut out bits with muslin. I used one of hubby's white shirts. Luckily he is going through his blue period.






Cover the back and the bottom with white paper. Shine a lamp from above into the box and you are now good to go.


Let me know how you get on.
