I’ve had a few readers ask me how I made my lightbox. Well, I found everything I needed at Walmart.
Plastic storage container: I got a long, shallow one because I wanted it to be lower for J and with a bigger work surface. $7.00
Under counter light: I like this because the light is more uniform than using twinkle lights. I got the longest one that would fit inside the box. $7.00
White tissue paper: I wanted to distribute the light a bit better and not make it quite so harsh, so I threw in a piece of tissue paper. I was worried that it would make the box a fire hazard, but it doesn’t seem to get too hot and I don’t leave the light on for extended periods of time. $1.00
I just let the cord run under the lid and snapped the lid on.
There you go…a lightbox for under $15.00!
Here’s J figuring out how it works.
