Basically it's just a cardboard box with openings cut into it.
Spray painted white inside.
Lined the openings with white tissue paper as a cheap "diffuser" ( I think I did a couple layers of it... delicate but easy to replace)
100watt full spectrum CFL bulbs in those cheap 5" round clamp lights. (CFLs don't get hot enough to burn the tissue paper)
Put some white cardstock in the back as a background.
The results were amazing really. Very happy with it. Cheap as heck; the full spectrum CFL bulbs were easily the most expensive parts.
Here's some more examples using that same light box.
