Step 4.) Use your Masking tape and secure the wax paper over the top panel, and two side panels. Work carefully to avoid any wrinkles, cuts or tiny gaps in your wax paper. Tape all four sides of the wax paper down to create a sturdy, solid, translucent wall.
Step 5.) Your light box is nearly done, and only needs a backdrop! Take your heavy stock white paper, and measure it so that it is the same length of your “back wall” in the light box. (The back wall is the one opposite of the only open panel in your box.) Insert the white paper through the opening, and tape it to the very very top of the back wall. It’s fine if the paper is too long and spills out of the box. Avoid folding or creasing this paper, and instead shoot for a gentle curve in the back of your light box.
Step 6.) Take your light box outside in the sunshine, place your handcrafted item inside the box and start snapping photos! The wax paper will diffuse the light for you and give you an even, well-light photo!
