DIY Lightbox

My wonderfully talented and creative wife creates all sorts of crafts and sells them through various avenues, one of which is through a Facebook account.  Check it out here.  We needed a way to get some better pictures of her products.  I found this article on Strobist.  Here are some pics of my version of their DIY lightbox.

The picture of this sock monkey is an example of what this lightbox can do.

I pulled the box out of a recycle bin and bought poster board and tissue paper for about $3 at Walmart.  Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with the money spent and how it turned out!


  1. i totally had one of these! it worked great... until one of the cats tried to sleep on top of it. that didn't work out so well for my DIY lightbox. fernando took pity on me though and bought me a real one for christmas :)

  2. What brand did he get you? Can you send a link?
