Chibitronics Paper Circuit

First, think about

your design...

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...

TIPS:
  • ​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

Attach battery
& LED

Fold to shine!

CONTROL IDEAS:
  • Glue just the tip of the corner (loosely) on the page to make an "on" button
  • Keep the light on with a binder clip
