In this step you attach the LEDs to the batteries using the electrical tape. One method is to put the LEDs in place and then wrap the battery with the tape as shown in the picture.

Step 3: Lighting up the Origami

To light the origami up I simply just stuck the LEDs in the origami figure to illuminate it. Then i used clear tape to seal it closed

Step 4: THE END

You can now use this for whatever you want. You can also light up other figures such as dogs and swans.
