The making is very simple,
1)Take your Chart paper (I used an invitation card lying around) and Mark out your dimensions on it. You can alter it to suit your camera.
My paper was 10 cm wide and 20 cm Tall.
I marked a 2 cm "LIP" and folded the rest into 3-Equidistant folds (6 Cm X 3 = 18 cm).

Step 4: Fold It

3) Mark out the Front Window and cut it out

4) Paste Butter paper (or other translucent material that lets out a nice, Diffused light) onto the front Window.

5) Fold the Paper exactly like a triangle and Glue the "LIP" to maintain shape.

Step 5: Say CheezZZ!

Thats it!
Mount your Freshly made Flash diffuser and Shoot away. No more harsh shadows, No more blinding Glare.
Oh! I am sure your new home-made item will bring on a humble smile to your followers. Time to take a pic!!

But won't it Block too much light? It's quite thick. Also vellum tends to yellow over time.

As an Upgrade, I changed the Butter paper to diffused Translucent Plastic. Very durable and more efficient.

Vellum would make a good filter.

I was sincerely hoping you would have included a "before" and "after" photo to show the results you get with your diffuser. I was especially curious to see how evenly the light spreads and at what distances from the subject. You have me curious, and I may try it, just to see what the results are.
