Self sticking velcro (the half with the little prongs) taped to your soft box, and 2 strips of heavy black felt?

What Ron said, and if you run it all the way around, you can stick the felt wherever you want, so you can change the shape and size of your light opening.

Cheers!

Just remember the light won't be as soft with a mask as it will with a true strip box. You lose a lot of the bounced light and mostly get a direct (but diffused) beam. I tested a strip mask on my 36x48 vs a 16x48 and the 16x48 was softer and threw a bit wider beam. Just something to consider... BTW, I bought the Paterson strip box from B&H for $89 without a speed ring. Pretty cheap and good quality IMHO.

Two trash bags and spring clips. Done it many times. Quick and easy, but not very sexy.
