DIY: DSLR Pop-up Flash Diffuser

The problem is these flashes tend to make harsh shadows on your subjects, and to overcome this many people use Gary Fong Puffer Pop-Up Flash Diffuser which available for around $24 at Amazon.

But why spend $24 if you could make your own Pop-up flash diffuser from vacuum bag, a film canister or even a tissue?
