I thought it was about time I made myself a lightbox on a budget. Eventually I think I’ll get an actual one, but this will do for now!

All I needed was:

  • White paper
  • Clear storage box
  • Sellotape
  • Lamp


Start with the lid off the box and on its side. Then start sticking paper into the inside! Try to ensure there are no folds and that it is all made good.


Place the lamp at the top and let the light shine into the box from the top. I stuck a piece of paper right at the top where the lamp would shine through to make sure the light gets dispersed.

There you go! A lightbox on a budget!
