This Christmas I’m fully going the DIY route. I’ve got bath bombs chilling in the cupboard (lime, bergamot, and orange scents). There’s cross stitched images waiting to be turned into ornaments. But the banger is the light box. Working in layers you cut card stock to reveal an image is simple or details as you want it to be. I, of course, jumped into something a bit more detailed (I’m looking at you, spruce tree).
There’s so many instructional videos, photo tutorials, and pictures for inspiration online that if you’re so inclined you could figure out how to do this in a day. Here is a great tutorial that gives you a step by step. If you’ve got an evening to spare I definitely suggest giving this a try.
