Well... I've looked through instructables here and haven't found this done so... yea... hehe... Below is the final product

Step 1: Two projects combined

Ok... this whole project really is two projects put together...

1. The original LED Throwies tutorial: LED Throwies
2. How to make an origami star: Origami Star

Essentially here are the items you will need:

1. 5mm Super Bright LED:
I got from ebay... 105 of them for $9.99... 7 different colors :D

2. CR2032 3V Lithium Batteries:
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

4. 1/2" Dia x 1/8" Thick NdFeB Disc Magnet, Ni-Cu-Ni plated:
can be found at Amazing Magnets & KJ Magnetics

5. 1.5cm x 18 cm strip of translucent vellum: found in most art stores... got mine from Utrecht
:D ty
<p>Very pretty! Thanks for sharing your hard work.</p><p>sunshiine</p>
Would it be ok to make the star bigger so that the battery can be inside the star instead of sticking out?
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
i just love makin these stars. i never thought about this idea...thanks for the inspiration :D
my pleasure :D
