Look at these wonderful pictures!
I had a box leftover from a Christmas delivery.
It was not quite deep enough, so I left the flaps and taped them outward to become part of the box.
That made it deeper. Being very careful, I used a sharp knife to cut out one side, leaving about 1-2 inches all around that edge.
I then turned the box over, leaving the solid part of the box on the floor, and cut the other side.
I then set the box with the back on the floor and cut out the top portion of the light box.
The box becomes flimsy, if you don’t keep the solid part positioned correctly.
In other words, the way this box is sitting, you could NOT cut the top out, because it would simply collapse.
It sort of reminds me of a ski slope, don’t you think?
My photo light box looks pretty crude, but you can see that it doesn’t really matter what the box looks like!
This is the clip on light I use. I bought this at Home depot for under $6.00.
If you have good natural lighting, you won’t need a light.
If you have an etsy shop, you really need to make one of these especially if you sell smalls, jewelry, etc.
If you have any questions, just shoot me an e-mail or leave a comment.
EDITED TO ADD MORE PICTURES
