Possibly with a little digital touch-up afterwards too.

I homemade lightbox and maybe a graphics editor (if you don't have enough lighting and need to lighten the image) will do it.

There are some tutorials and/or links to tutorials on Craftster.  Here's the one I remember off the top of my head... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75541.0

To take nice pictures of my crafts I use a white bookcase, like this one http://www.amazon.com/Ameriwood-03213GM-4-Shelf-Bookcase-White/dp/B000F3SCPC/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1203723152&sr=8-3 . I just put my craft in the corner and take a picture, sometimes with flash and sometimes without. If you need to use a flash because the room is too dark make sure to stand a couple feet away and use the zoom, that way the light wont wash out all the color.
