Lightbox

This week I decided to work on a little project: making a light box!

There are options for buying them in stores or online, but they're fairly expensive, when you can make one at home. Depending on the supplies in your home, it could cost anything from $5-10 dollars, or even free! My brother takes art classes in college, so he had things such as bristol paper (which you put on the inside of the lightbox for a nice white even background) around the house. Instead of muslin fabric, I used an old white t-shirt that I cut up and upcycled for the light diffuser. Check out the results:


Dandelions and Flowers Zipper Pouch is available for $10 on Etsy!



Want to know how it is done? Check out this fantastic tutorial!

    I think the lightbox is a great success! Your pictures have become clearer and more colorful with it.
