Take your coffee filter, and along the non ruffled side,
draw two parallel lines that are 2.5 inches long and are connected to the non ruffled side of the coffee filter.
Make sure that after you draw your first line, draw a line that is 3.0 inches long and perpendicular to the first line and will also connect the top of both parallel lines.

*Dimensions will slightly vary based on the size of your cameras flash

After you sketch the dimensions, cut the filter paper on the drawn lines.

Step 3: Glue filter together

I just tried this and I love it! I made it in 30 seconds and used tape instead of glue. The best thing about this diffuser is that if you lose it or anything, you can easily make another one in 30 seconds and it works just fine! Awesome instructable!
