LED Light Box Help!


Hey,

I am very new to crafting things using LED's and stuff, but I want to get in to it, and have set myself a project as I need a lightbox for drawing/tracing for work.

I want to make a A3 (29mm7 × 420 mm) sized box, with the aim to keep it as slim as possible. So I know that I need to use LED's because they are small and bright, I have been looking at white ones. I also know that I need some sort of frosted perspex to diffuse the light and keep the coverage of light even. That is important. A switch is necessary too of course! However I know nothing about what I need to connect the LED's together and how I am to power this. I would prefer to power this with power, but don't know how viable this is with LED's. I would just like a bit of advice of what I actually need then I will probably be able to figure the rest out!

Oh also if could keep the cost under £40 that would be perfect because if it was more, I might aswell just buy one from the shop!

Cheers!

Will
