The article says $10 but I only spent $0.58 for a poster board. I couldn't find the black one so I covered the white board with a piece of black fabric which I found in my closet.
First, here is the very helpful instruction:
Strobist: How To: DIY $10 Macro Photo Studio

And here is the one I made:

How To Make Light Box/Light Tent : Hip Girl Boutique - , Ribbons, Hair Bows, Hair Clips, Hairbow Hardware, Free Hairbow Instructions

I made this!! and it's the best thing I could do for my products!! I followed the tut & here are some of my pics you can see more on my FB page, my eldest son helped me make it since he love building things. I think I need an overhead light though! for more TRUER white light, that will be this weekends project.
THANK YOU FOR THE TUT!!! w/o my pics would have been just "blah"

I need to make a light box, but I just wanted to say I love your idea of using the dish for the prop..I have a lot of milk glass downstairs in the basement that I don't bring out for fear of breaking it, but using it for photos is a good idea!
