Gail from Can’t Stop Making Things posted a tutorial on how to make a DIY light box on the cheap. You can find everything you need for this project at the dollar store. You need two frames (because you need the two pieces of glass). You can use light boxes for lots of great crafty applications, like tracing, embossing, or paper layout.

Project Estimate:

  • Small cardboard box, on hand
  • Small flashlight, $1
  • Two matching picture frames, $2
  • White paper, on hand

Total cost: $3
