Soft box light from a plastic container.

Here is the soft box light I made from a large plastic container,  Some utility lights from the feed store, a hot glue gun and vellum.  I cut holes a half inch smaller than the reflectors on my lights and got glued them to the top.  Then I lined the bottom with some white vellum paper to spread the light.  I can get 1/15 sec. at f22 at iso 800 on my canon eos.  I suspended it over a large drafting table.  If I want softer light I lean white poster board up on the sides and the front.  It works great but I want to make a bigger one.  I think I spent less than $40 on it in total.
