This project was created for YuKonstruct and SMRT Pop Ups' Monster Love craft party. It is a remix of two great instructables:

Our goal was to create an easy date night craft kit that could be assembled while enjoying beer and conversation, and would make a cute little Valentines gift. Who doesn't love a DIY twist on the classic Operation game?

We designed the cardstock box pieces to be cut with our makerspace's Epilog laser cutter, but you could also print out the designs and cut them by hand.

YuKonstruct is the first makerspace in Canada's north. Our mission is to provide access to shared space, quality tools, available expertise, and a collaborative environment to help makers build anything!

Step 1: What you'll need

Parts you'll need to build the game:

  • Cardstock box pieces (template attached)
  • Aluminium foil
  • LED
  • Wire
  • Coin cell battery
  • Hair clip "tweezers"

Other things you'll need:

  • Glue (glue stick, glue dots, hot glue or whatever you have)
  • Tape
  • Markers, crayons, or other tools to decorate the game
  • Scissors and/or a craft knife
  • Something to put in the box: candy, toys, jewelry, etc.
<p>why does it print so small ?</p>
<p>You might need to change your print settings on the pdf. It might be coming out really small because it is shrinking the two pages to fit on one sheet of paper.</p>
<p>that looks great </p>
