    1) yup, tissue paper secure with rubber band.

    2) cut a piece of panel light diffuser (those used in the office ceilling light), slightly bigger than the front of the flash head, secure with velcro. use it as a wide angle diffuser.

    3) cut a white translucent plastic rectangle that can fit the flash head. use it as a softbox.

    4) cut a rectangle piece of white plastic sheet about size of 2 CD cover, secure with velcro and use it as a bounce card.

    you will need to expt abit to get best performance. happy DIYing.
