Day 26 of Make Madness – Photo Lightbox


012236190e2f001cf58928b51f0642bef7ae26419eI followed the tutorial exactly with the exception of a few adjustments because of the supplies I had on hand.  I only made two adjustments – I used clear packing tape instead of white masking tape and I used tissue paper instead of tracing paper.  I used clear packing tape and tissue paper on my original light box and never had a problem.

I cut up the foam core into 3 – 15″X20″ and 2 – 15″X15″ pieces.  Out of two of the 15″X20″ pieces I cut out a section in the middle leaving me with a 2″ border all around.  I also did this to one of the 15″x15″ pieces.

Then I taped the tissue paper over the three cut out sections.  I doubled up the tissue paper to give it the look of tracing paper.  It also strengthens the tissue paper making it less likely to poke your finger through the paper – like I did with my original light box ;-).

It’s much bigger than the first one I made and makes such a difference when taking pictures of product for my Etsy shop.

Until tomorrow,





I don’t think I’ll fit.
