When I switched plastic colors (to neutral) I took a picture with it lit up from the inside (inspired by this). I started thinking about making a lantern / lampshade for my headlamp out of some of the corrugated plastic. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts. I came to the conclusion that it was the wrong material for the job, but I was not ready to give up on the idea. It turns out that I had the perfect material just sitting in my Camping Kitchen Box... plastic chopping mats. After trying some more complicated designs, I ended up with a dead simple cuboid design.
I am not planning on selling these, as they are very easy to make. The cutting diagram is below and the video shows how easy it is.
- Dollar Tree 11 X 14 Flexible Chopping Mat You get 2 for a dollar. These are thinner than your typical cutting sheet but just right for our purposes.
- 5/8 inch velcro dots
- Box Cutter
- Straight Edge
