Not British - But yes I mean Loo as in Toilet Paper rolls..
The box doesn't so much attach to the TV or go over it, but rather just sits in front of it..  The box only needs to be a frame to hold the rolls in..  Our TV sits on a cupboard so I have a couple of glasses that I use as a stand..  You could make legs for the box or whatever if to get it to the right hight so that the box is in front of the screen..
The Rolls just sit in the box, you just stack them in, no attaching or anything.. 
I'll take some pics of it & maybe that'll make things clearer for all..  Post tomorrow..  And maybe some clearer directions..  I've been sick for a week & the brain isn't working to well at the moment..  Sorry guys..

Not the best of renditions - but this is kind of how I'm assuming the whole thing gets put together.
I'm sure you could just tape a lightweight box to the tv as the TP Tubes can't be that heavy and you'd have to have a lightweight enough fabric for the light to show through.

Funky idea...

Sounds like a good way to get rid of your empty wrapping paper tubes - just cut them into sections of the right length.  And making a trippy TV-light display is much more constructive (and less painful) than using them for swords as my brother likes to do...  Roll Eyes

It seems to me that this would make an AWESOME party decoration! Just put on a fast paced movie....mute it...awesome, swirling, fantastical lights!

This is really random and REALLY COOL.

i knew there was a reason i was saving all of those empty tubes.

out of curiosity, what kind of fabric did you use?  it looks like muslin, but i could be wrong  (and if you already mentioned it, i appologize, i didnt see it)

I think this would look too cool with an animated movie behind it.  Animated movies have colors in them that don't exist in the real world.  Cheesy  I'd make one of these, but I don't think my toddler would tolerate it.

just made my own! And I love it...great sexy background lighting.
Someone suggested painting the tubes white, I did and it made no difference at all.
For fabric I cut up an old stained white pillowcase, I just used a regular desk stapler to attach the fabric. Once you have all the tubes (which considering I live in a co-op with 30 people it was no problem) this project is terribly simple..took me about ten minutes but is bringing me hours of joy...makes a nice night light.
