Several years ago I was given several pieces of plate glass, the object was to make a light box for tracing. Well, didn't need one just then, so the project got shelved. But now have need, so was going to make one, simple enough, just a bit time consuming. Then I recalled, google is our friend. So, to keep from reinventing the wheel, decided to give google a shot. And this is what I came up with. DIY Tracing Light Box for Under $20. - All
However, that was still more than I wanted to spend. Then I remembered, awhile back I had to soak my foot, so shopped at the Dollar Tree (everything $1 or less), and got a plastic container, with lid, for $1, plus tax of course. And I've already got a batch of $1 LED flashlights from WallyWorld. Good to go. The one I have is just a tad smaller than a sheet of typing paper, so later I'll go back and get one slightly larger. May eventually put some foil inside, but for now, does what I need.
I'm not cheap, I'm frugal.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
