I Might Be the Lovechild of MacGyver and Martha Stewart

So today I went to the craft store to get a lightbox, and walked right back out because of the $40 price tag. Yikes...
I decided to take measures into my own hands. So, after quick trip to the store, a mere $3, and about 5 minutes of work.....DIY Lightbox! It works really well too:
It is probably one of the easiest projects ever. All you have to do is cut a hole in a frosted plastic bin, put a set of mini Christmas lights inside, string the plug through the hole, put the lid on, and flip it over. Done!
Also, make sure you wash your hands after handling the lights because they have lead, we don't want anyone keeling over now do we?
That's it for now :)
