This is a series of Paper Craft Lamps that use LED's. I modeled up a lamp in Blender, and then assigned textures to each of the parts, so if you want to change the look of the lamp there are several ways to do that. One is to use a paint or photo program to modify the blank pattern that I provided. The other is to use the provided .pod file in Pepakura Designer and just apply any texture that you like. I also have provided several different versions that can be mixed and matched to change up the look. Also this tutorial only shows 4 clear LEDs wired into the lamp but there is plenty of room for more than just 4 LEDs.
Step 1: Materials
Gather the materials needed.
These are needed for sure
*Double sided tape
*x-acto knife / razor
*4-LEDs (use High-Output or Ultra-Bright LEDs)
*4-Resistors to protect the LEDs I used 1K
*3ft or thin wire (I used some 28AWG ribbon cable)
*4-sheets of Card Stock 8.5X11in or Heavy Photo Paper
*one on off switch
*DC power supply ~3V or (2AA batteries and battery holder)
These are optional
