Chibitronics Paper Circuit
First, think about
Step 1. Trace the LED Step 2. Trace the battery in the bottom right corner edge Step 3. Fold the corner, and then trace the other side of the battery Step 4. Draw a circuit that connects both sides of the battery to both sides of the LED
Draw it out...
For best results, use a single piece of tape on either side of the LED.
Make sure there's a gap where the LED goes. Without a gap, the current will flow straight through the copper (path of least resistance), ignoring the LED
Add copper first...
GLUE ONE SIDE: Use glue dots to secure 1 side of the battery to the inner circle (avoid glue on copper!)
Make sure the + side of the battery leads to the + side of the LED
Fold to shine!
Glue just the tip of the corner (loosely) on the page to make an "on" button
Keep the light on with a binder clip
