    Using Baby wipes box for a diffuser on your flash.

    Or use a yogurt container.

    I made something similar and made it a bit more durable with the laminator .

    I wanted to make a more durable bounce card that was also more efficient - in other words one that throws no light backwards when it fires .
    I cut out the shape I wanted , cut out a slightly bigger pattern of aluminium foil and wrapped the edges over - that's to help reflect back any light that tries to escape backwards .
    Put it into a lamination sleeve and run it through the laminator .....



    It looks different the second time if you end up feeding it through at the wrong angle and everything crumples up :redface: then you have to cut another one .
    But once you cut out the laminated finished product it is pretty sturdy and rather neat looking .[ with velcro added to attach to flash head ]...



    This time I wiped the mirror before taking the test shot ......
