I had some leftover LED-stripe lying around and I thought about what I could make out of it. You can cut the stripe into really small pieces so I got the idea to make small lamps "light panels" out of it. This is a suggestion for a useful simple Kit. With this kit you can build 3x3cm large light panels to light up everything you want.

Step 1: The Materials

The materials per panel are 
2x - 3x3cm clear plastic plate (I cut them out of a haribo box)
3x - LED-stripe piece from a stripe with 120 LEDs per meter
1x - 12V DC power supply
Very professional looking result - do you have any trouble with the soft plastic melting from the heat of the LEDs?
I never had any problems like that you can even touch the LEDs while working they are producing very little heat.
