I based my box on their box. I cut my foamcore a bit thin. If I was doing it again I would make it a 2" thickness in stead of 1.
What you need:
3 sheets of formcore. Got mine in a 3 pack for $5.99 pluss a 25% of coupon.
1 roll Duct tape. no price since I had some
1 poster board. $.50
3 sheets of tissue paper. I got 25 for $1 Save the rest for wrapping paper.
1 Utility knife
1 pair of Scissors
Step 1: Measure your cuts and draw them out.
|Making sure I get it straight|
Step 2 Cut out the rectanle.
|One down 2 to go|
The first thing I did was take strips of duct tape and cut them in half. I took 4 wide sttrips and made them into 8 thin strips.
Step 4 assembly
I laid out the board side to side I left a little bit of width between the boards and taped them together.
Again I flipped it over made a bend and reinforced the angle.
Once it is assembled I set it up with 2 desk / stand lights on each side. I might look into brighter lights. I played around with how close I set the lamps. Also I might look into getting daylight or true light bulbs.
Over all not bad. It makes my editing job easier and while there is a little shadow it is not like what I would have gotten with direct light. I am happy. Now if only my rotating display would come in.
I hope you enjoyed this how-to. It took a few hours to do but I think it is worth the effort. Maybe now I should stop using my cell phone and switch to a real camera.Have a great week.
