Introduction: Glowing Box

I'll show you how to make glowing box!!!

Step 1: Materials

You need:

scissors
2 paper squares (the fist one with measurement 9 x 9 cm and the second one - 8.5 x 8.5 cm)
a battery
and a LED (it doesn't matter the color)

Step 2: Folding

1. Fold the paper to a half and then to a quarter.
2. Open the paper, and fold the corners to the center.
3. Fold the bottom and the top parts to the center line and unfold.
4. Fold the left and the right parts to the center line and unfold again.
5. Do a reverse fold as shown in the picture and cut the dotted lines (see the pictures).
6. Fold the corners A, B, C and D as shown.
7. Fold corners 1 and 2.
8. The box is ready...now make the same with the other sheet of paper.

Step 3: LED

When you're ready with the box put the LED with the battery in the box and close it.

Step 4: Ready

The box is ready to use.

Enjoy!!!

Radio Shack is great for a single LED. If you want cheaper LEDs and more of them, buy online.
