DIY Lightbox - for tracing applique or other projects
I had a brilliant idea this past week for an easy DIY lightbox (tracing box). I looked online and prices can range anywhere from $80 and up. I wanted one, but NOT that bad. :)
I went to my local Wally World and picked up a few supplies:
Under the cabinet battery operated lights ($7 each)
Plastic bin ($6)
Batteries (I already had batteries)
The under the cabinet lights came with velcro strips to use, so I placed these to the light and to the underside of the plastic bin lid. The hardest part of the project was putting the batteries in the unit and that wasy easy.
