I recently came across a post on LinkedIn with a link  (my apologies to the guy who posted this ’cause I can no longer find his link) to a great You Tube video showing how to make a light box

and as my vacuum cleaner had recently given up the battle with the Spaniel fur, I had in my possession a large box which was going to sit around until I could get to the tip. So in the spirit of Blue Peter I decided to have a go….

1. mark and cut out squares from 3 of the sides

2. tape over the spaces panels of glassine or tissue paper

3. cut a long strip of glassine paper and pin into the top edge of the box to create an infinity edge

Not as pretty as their version but the beauty of this design for me is that it folds down flat – perfect as I am always short of space!
