just looked through froogle.com goes around $0.50 - $2.00

3. 1-inch wide Strapping Tape:
I'm using duct tape here cuz i don't have any strapping tape... hehe... can be found pretty much anywhere

Would it be ok to make the star bigger so that the battery can be inside the star instead of sticking out?
MastaAzumarek (author)  lhong43 years ago
well the main reason for the light sticking out was so that the magnet would directly come in contact with the metal it's gonna stick on, but if the magnet is strong enough, then I guess it could work, don't know how well the star would glow with the size of the star compared to the LED... I guess try it out and c wat happens :D
