If your stuck then yes use what ever you can, a box will suffice, only use a low power extract fan for drying, and attach ducting from box to your grow tent, a shower fan is perfect for extraction but this depends on the size of the dry room, on the box make a vent at the bottom, attach mosquito net to the vent, this will be a passive intake, duct tape up all corners and along the rims of the box.
If you have room in your grow room you could put it in the corner but the temp inside the dry box should be around 20 degrees so a vent to a fresh air supply would be needed.
Good luck with it mate.

Better to hang them in the dark outside the tent though, perhaps next to your tent's air intake to deal with the smell. Perfect drying conditions are 15-20C and 45-55% RH, try and take as long as possible to dry slowly (two weeks is good) before jarring for curing.

I've had the same problem before now.
I got a big cardboard box and ran strings across the top and hung the plants in there. I then attached the box to the tents passive intake (outside the tent though) so room temp air is drawn through the drying box in to the tent which then deals with the small.
Pretty easy to do and worked just fine for me, guess it depends on how much you were drying.
