Cover the cardboard endings to make it more durable.

Step 3: Reflector

Cover the inside with the aluminium tape to form a reflector

Stick one side of the Velcro tape to the narrow ending of the softbox, where the flash / strobe would be.
the other side goes on the flash / strobe.

Step 5: Softening Plastic Sheet

Make a slot along the endings of the box where the plastics sheet sits and thread the plastic sheet through

Step 6: Mount

That is it !
Mount it on the flash / strobe using the velcro to secure it and take grate photos.
