Light Box

So now that I have my new Nikon I vowed to thrown my self full on into Fifi's Closet in 2011.  Step 1 is taking better pics and I finally have the camera to do it.  I have horrible lighting in my house so I am considering making a light box.  I found some great instructions HERE from Hip Girl Clips:
 

 

Have any of you ever made one or do you use one of these for your project photos?

  25. I love my camera, but I am thinking it's not the best for the things I want/need to be taking pictures of. Or maybe I just need to play with it more. I do love it. If your light box works let us know. I might make one too.

  40. I made my own light box and use it for my Etsy store (www.anniedees.etsy.com). I went and bought two metal shop lights and use those on the side. I wrote a post about it here:
