DIY LightSphere

Don't feel like shelling out $60 for a Gary Fong LightSphere?  Allen Mowery made this simple version from household items that looks like it works pretty well. The best thing about this, besides the price, is that it look rugged. Something that could be folded and stuffed in a pocket of your bag and not take hardly any room. My preferred flash-bouncing solution is the large Rouge FlashBender, which cost less and it more easily packed than the Fong LightSphere, but is still much more expensive than Allen's DIY solution.
