Directions and execution of the box are simple, figuring out the lighting using just what's around the house, not so much. The easiest place turned out to be my office desk because it had the most light without having to move every lamp in the house. Here's the set up I ended up with.
There's tissue paper taped on the outside of both sides and the top and I used the matte side of freezer paper for my "roll". This seems to work well and it's all stuff I already had on hand. I moved the heads of the big floor lamp on the right so it pointed in the box but didn't have a balancing light on the right (I later moved in a bedroom lamp, laid on it's side to direct light in from the left).
Here's my SOOC shots:
Better - and pretty evenly lit with only slight shadows, plenty of detail.
