We created a simple box for displaying your LEDs. This box is made of laser cut acrylic but it can easily be made from any clear type of plastic you have laying around.

We also have this box available in a low price kit. 

This box works by placing a CR927 coin battery in the center of the box and you insert two 3mm Leds on both sides. The box is a holder for the LEDs and the glow will illuminate the box.

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make it easier, this guide is based of the kit version of the glow box. You can use any clear plastic to make the top, bottom , and side frames.

The total length of the box is 40mm and the width is about 20mm. The center slot for the battery is 8mm by 3mm.

Materials Needed
  • (2)3mm leds
  • (1) CR927 coin battery
  • Acrylic frame - Top, Bottom , Sides 
  • Super Glue
<p>How hard would it be to add an on/off switch?</p>
very cool, will you post the laser cut files?
