Default Top view w/ light box?

How do you take a photo with a lightbox using a view from above? This may seem obvious, but I built a homemade lightbox using a tut. I found here. I guess I used the "Field of Dreams" mentality. You know, "If I build it, the skill will come"? I've been trying to prop my items up and shoot from the front, but I'd like to be able to lay them flat and shoot from above. Does this mean I can't use the box, or does it mean I have to change my configuration, or do I just need to have a better way to prop the items upright? Thanks for your advice. Sally

I am able to get a top view with my homemade light box. I used a taller box than the tut that I followed recommended though, maybe that is the key?

Do you actually stick your camera into the box? I thought that would block and make a shadow. I just tried to tilt the camera and get as close to the box as I could.

I have put my camera inside the box. I have my two lights on the sides, so most of the light is coming from that direction anyhow, so I don't think it adds a shadow.

This is one of my listings that has an above shot:
