Ed, this may put Sto-fen's Omni Bounce line out to pasture! Great practical idea.

Hmmm, now that's an idea. I keep getting frustrated with needing flash, but it's too much. I keep changing the compensation, but I never get it right.

Might have to look into this as I really can't afford the "real" ones for the few times I want to use it.

That's really slick, what did you line the inside of the opening with?

Thanks for sharing your invention.

I just checked the medicine cabinet and I have one just like yours, looks like the toughest part will be peeling off the label.

Goo Gone takes care of everything that has adhesive stuck to it.

I lined the inside with the non-hook side of a stick on velcro strip. Think I bought at Home Depot.
