You need 6 Origami papers, Cooper Tape, 1 CR016 Battery , 1 Transistor 2N700 NCH MOSFET, 1 LED, 1 Resistor 1k ohm and scissors
Put the origami paper color side down
Fold on the horizontal diagonal. Crease well and unfold.
Fold both top and bottom tips to meet in the center and crease.
Fold the bottom again both sides to the center.
Fold both left and right tips.
Fold each corner towards the center. Each corner to the middle of the opposite side.
Hide each corner into the flap.
Paper over and fold each corner as in the picture.
Fold the six papers exactly the same.
For assembling, use 1 of each color. Insert the tips into the pockets of the other paper.
Insert another tip into the other side of pocket.
Flip the paper over, once you have the top side bring up the tips above and insert them into the pocket of the new paper.
Keep inserting the tips into the pockets. And you will finish assembling it.
To put light on it: take one folded paper, the Cooper Tape, 1 CR016 Battery , 1 Transistor 2N700 NCH MOSFET, 1 LED, 1 Resistor 1k ohm, insulating tape...
Cut about 4 cm of cooper tape and stick it from the left corner diagonal to the center. Cut another piece of cooper tape, about 10 cm. Paper over and ...
Put the battery just above the end of the first tape and stick the second tape on the battery guiding the tape to the left down corner.
Cut a third piece of cooper tape, about 8 cm. Turn over the paper and stick the third tape beside the second tape. Turn over the paper again and conti...
Cut and stick some insulating tape, enough to cover the battery, the first and second cooper tape.
Take the transistor and put it above the black tape, flat side upward. Make sure the first leg is touching the first cooper tape. Cut some cooper tape...
Put the resistor right below the second leg of the transistor, be sure the legs are touching each other and the resistor's bottom is touching the thir...
Take the LED and stick its shortest leg to the third leg of the transistor, with cooper tape also. Stick the shortest leg of the LED to the second coo...
Finally we have the magic. Touch the second and third cooper tape at the same time so the light can be on. To turn it of, touch the third and first co...
You can assemble 5 color papers and fold one transparent paper to be able to see the light.
