Project Light Box

I made this DIY light box last year in 2013. Mine was similar to the countless instructables which can be found on the Internet (try it, its fun!). All parts except for the obvious lamps, were from paper products.

The idea of having this was to help my wife take some product photos. I decided to give the box a trial-run with a caterpillar instead.

Meet Luke. 🙂

We fed him well and it soon morphed into a beautiful butterfly!

Meanwhile the fragile light box sustained multiple punctures in the subsequent weeks and ended up in the recycling bin…
