I've been wanting to make a light box for quite a while now but wasn't sure how to go about it.
I watched a few tutorials... looked simple enough... but...
Nothing new these days!
About a month ago...
I finally grabbed some small dowels from Walmart and a piece of white fabric.
Then I waited and thought some more about how I was going to do it.
Realized I didn't buy enough dowels, I bought some more last week.
Yesterday, after finding out that I didn't have any ink in my printer and
in the mood to create something,
I decided to get myself in gear and give it a try.
Tools in hand...
Scissors to cut the dowels.
I cut them about 15 inches long.
That gave me enough room so that I can get a 12x12 layout in there if I want to.
Twine to (hopefully) tie it all together.
I tied a couple of dowels together...
Once I had a couple of squares, for the top and bottom, I started adding the dowels for the sides.
Lots of twine!!!
Not very pretty!
Then came the "now how do I get the material on there?" thought!
Oh and the realization that I also didn't buy enough fabric!
Grabbing the scissors again
a few little safety pins...
This is what it ended up looking like from the inside...
Definitely primitive but for now it works.
I don't have the lights to place around the sides but I found that as long as the sun is coming through the window behind the box it works great!
If you look here
you will see a couple of pictures that I took inside my new creation.
