Light box!!

Hello Crafty friends.  I haven't been too happy with most of my photos that I take because of lighting.  I think some of the pictures come out too dark and you really can't see them very well....so I googled how to make a light box.  I came across a video by Auctiva on how to make a "low budget" light box....and I am impressed!  It was really easy to make.  The hardest part was cutting the cardboard box.  I will show you some pictures without the light box on the left.....and in the light box on the right.

Here is the light box I made!!  I have a lamp on the left side and on top, some tissue paper and  poster board.....and there you go!
 I do hope you can see the difference with the light box!   I had fun making the box and the card.....and I saved some $$ because I had all the items in my Crafty Room. 
Here is how I made the card:  I used a file from the Silhouette store for the butterfly easel card.  I used some rhinestones I had laying around for a little bling.  I also used MCT  Build a Banner Kit die and the sentiment on the tag is from It's All About You and the inside sentiment is from Polka Dot Surprise stamp set.  I hope you like my project today.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you again really soon.


  1. Love the light box you made Brenda! I actually use a large white folder as my background which has definitely helped but I'm thinking that the actual box may be a better idea :) TFS
