MAKE: THINGS THAT LIGHT UP
LED Binder Clip Bling
1. Make your circuit.
Slide 1 LED onto a 3V coin battery. The longer lead goes on the + side. No light? Flip the LED around.
Cut a foam rectangle. Make it large enough to cover the battery when folded in half.
Hold the battery, LED, and foam together with a binder clip.
Test to make sure it works, then take it apart. Time to make it interesting.
2. Decorate your circuit.
Grab a foam sticker to bling your design or cut out a pattern with foam pieces
Push your LED light through your creation. Slide the battery back in. You may need to bend the leads a little to get it into the binder clip or clip with scissors(just dont cut too short).
Hold everything together with a binder clip. Add layers, add colors, and make it your own!
3. Attach your bling.
Use a piece of chenille stem to attach your bling to your hand, clothes, backpack, or anything you like! Or glue it to a pin or barrette for an easy to attach light-up wearable.
