I cut holes in 3 sides, leaving about 2 inches all the way around (a realy sharp blade - box cutter). Left the bottom and 1 side in tact. Then covered the holes with velum or translucent mylar.

For lighting I used 2 old adjustable desk lamps with softwhite or reveal 60watt bulbs. Sometimes just Reveal other times SoftWhite and yet other times in combinaion. Depends on the look you are going for or the effect you are trying create. I have even used a lower wattage for my highlight and the higher wattage on the side. You can adjust the placement of the laps to achieve similar effect. There are no hard and fast rules, that is why it is called CREAT-ive.

To answer your question, YES, just like the link you posted.
