Light box for Christmas

Create your own light box for truly magical moments

Light boxes are currently all the rage. Luckily, it’s easy to make one of your very own! Light boxes remind us of cinema ads from the 50s and make a wonderful head-turner in any room. Whether as a special highlight in the hall, in the living room or on the landing, you can easily create your own Christmas light box with festive ambience using the handy permanent markers from edding. The individual words are written on an overhead sheet before being slid into the ready-made rows of the light box. And the best part? You can redesign your light box whenever you like! Bored of your chosen sentiment or want to give guests a really special welcome to your home? No problem! Simply create a new hand-lettered strip.
