Daylight Wafer 1 Lightbox and cutting mat
A light box can be a great many things to a great many people. One common thread with all of those who love a light box is their need to see just one step further. Today we’re going to talk about the Daylight Wafer 1 Lightbox and Cutting mat.
Light box woes
Before I talk about this new fancy light box, let me share with you a story of my first light box. I was a freshman in college, studying fashion design. On the list of school supplies for my first fashion illustration class was card stock, a mechanical pencil 0.5 and a light box. The only one I could find was this 3 inch think, cream, clunky, heavy box which provided me with a 2 foot of power cord. I was never in love with that box to say the least, but here’s the thing about school supplies – you buy what you’re told. Most times, it’s not until you’ve been using it awhile you realize it isn’t any good.
Fast forward 7 years, I started to manage a sewing shop. We found these light boxes which were an upgrade from my old light box. The issue was still the short cord, it was heavy and the light was just a regular bulb (which at the time was a selling feature). It was still an improvement from the college day light box, but not much.
Recently I was asked to take a look at the Daylight Wafer 1 Lightbox from a few customers and I immediately thought to myself, “I hate light boxes”, but maybe I should give this new one a chance. The size I chose was the Wafer 1 (even though there are a total of three sizes) and I decided to get the cutting mat to go along with it. The cutting mat aspect was pretty intriguing.

Taking the Daylight Wafer 1 Lightbox out of the box was like Christmas morning. The first thing I noticed was how lightweight it was! Can I kist say, love at first sight?! My plan was to use this new Daylight Wafer 1 Lightbox and cutting mat for a new paper piecing project I wanted to work on. For all the details, watch the video below!
