In this tutorial we will show you how to make a paper house that lights up as it gets dark. To do this we will use some Bare Paint, a battery, some standard LEDs, an LDR (light dependent resistor), a transistor and a 100K resistor.
To help you complete this project we've made the components and template available to buy in the House Kit available from our shop at www.bareconductive.com.
Otherwise, you can check out the Components section of our House Tutorial to find out where you can get all the components to make these on your own!
At Bare Conductive, we love playing around with Paper Circuitry and enjoy sharing fun projects that we, or our community members have come up with so make sure you check out our website for more great projects!
