Hey guys!!

Today I wanted to show you something I have been meaning to get done for quite some time. As a bit of a night owl, I tend to sleep in during the best lighting hours of the day. So I have went ahead and set up a light box so that no matter what time of day it is, I can take photo's of my new jewelry to show you anytime. In the process of making the light box I decided to show you a bit of what I have done.


<3 X-ACTO knife/scissors
<3 Masking tape ( the really wide stuff is the best!)
<3 Cardboard Box
<3 White thin or shear cotton fabric

(Generally all of these item's we already have!, Making this an easy go to project)

1)Start off by cutting out a square on the 2 sides and the top, leaving a 1-2" frame around each cut out.
2)Reinforces ALL edges and sides with masking tape to give them more strength.
3)Take your fabric and start running it around the box (making sure there are no wrinkles and it is tight), and tape all sides down.
4)Now all you need to do is cut out a runner fabric to go down the back wall, and to the front of the bottom of the box. This will act as your backdrop for your photo's, so make sure it isn't wrinkled.
