Title: Light Box ?

Hi
Anyone know how I can make a light box... the short where the light shines from underneath... like a transparency box..

You need to have a light source, prferably a daylight tube,or even better two, housed in a shallow box, like a drawer, and a piece of opaque perspex on the top to disperse the light. I'll have a scout round at work for you and see if xray are chucking any out.

Otherwise, you can pick them up in craft shops or on ebay for very little indeed at the moment.

If you look for light box embossing, they often go for pennies.
