File folder method, continued.
The finish your flash diffuser, fold your file folder along the marks so that you have five sections. Place the first and last section together, so that you have a three dimensional rectangle as pictured below, and use a little clear packaging tape to attach the edges. Slip the flash diffuser over your camera's flash, preferably so that it points upwards, and start taking pictures.
You need only:
- An opaque file folder, available at most office stores for less than a dollar.
- A pair of scissors, which you probably have already.
- A pen or pencil, which you hopefully have already.
- A strip of packaging tape, or, in a pinch, plain translucent craft tape, which you can find in an office store for less than a dollar.
Keep in mind that you can use plain white paper for this project, but it won't be nearly as sturdy and may not diffuse your flash as effectively.
