A $5 DIY Light Table
I see them all over the place – Light Tables/Light Boxes. But I knew they were expensive and didn’t want to construct something massive to save money, we just don’t have the room. Then I found this post. And kept searching and found this and this. Genius! Especially since I had almost everything I needed already, so it only cost me $5 to buy some of those flat colored gems in a floral department.
Clear bin with a white top(if you don’t have white, you could line it with parchment paper to soften the light) + string of white Christmas lights + big flat clear container on top to contain the fun + gemstones = lightbox!
