I was wanting a night light for a long time. Turned in the bookstore yesterday and after half hour I found this.
The main material is vellum, the true love.
Vellum got a good transmittance, relatively tough and its water-resistant. There is little ‘un perfection’, if you folded it too many times it will crack and takes long to dry after print on.
Tools. The one on the left is a LED with sticker at the back.
Found some high res images from the internet, print them out with 2 copies.
Printed this on the back. Then solid line is for cutting and the dotted line is for folding.
And they will become like these.
These are the sides.
Taped the side from inside, make them matched.
Found some waste cardboard (or carton) to cut a square (same size and bottom), stick the led in the middle, and then shade hem to encase it.
You can put it anywhere.
Even hang it on the wall.
