Is it arts and crafts you want? Then it is arts and crafts you will get!
Here is my LED-enhanced popsicle stick picture frame. Just in time for the holidays.
Step 1: Go get stuff.
30 - Popsicle sticks
1 - Photograph of you and your Grandma (or relative of choice)
1 - Micro toggle switch (Electronic Goldmine part #G1827)
8 - LEDS
1 - 3V coin cell battery
1 - Small piece of copper foil
1 - 12" of very thin flexible wire
1 - 12" Magnet tape
- exacto knife
- hot glue gun
- soldering iron
Step 2: Prepare a three layer popsicle stick frame.
Note that the three layers will line up upon the red dot (although the reason for "Layer 3" to be flipped horizontally may yet make sense).
Step 3: Carve the popsicle sticks.
The hollow area should be carved about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way into the popsicle stick. It should be deeper than your wire is high.
