Introduction: Outlet LED Wallet...

Picture of Outlet LED Wallet...

Make a wallet using 2 wall outlet shells, an LED, some wire, a garage door battery, and ALOT of electrical and clear duct tape...

You will need...
1. Clear Scotch packaging tape...
2. Black electrical tape...
3. 2 Switch outlet covers...
4. A LED... (color doesn't matter whatever suits you best...)
5. An size A23 battery...
6. Two wires like the ones in the picture...

Step 1: Starting Up...

Take the two outlets and use the black electrical tape to tape the short sides of the outlets in a hinge form. (Use the longside of the tape across the hinge area...)

Step 2: Wiring...

Picture of Wiring...

Take the LED and stick it through one of the holes in the outlet... (Where the screws go...) Preferrably one of the ones away from the hinge...

Then take the wires and attach one to one of the LED's wires and the other to the other one...
Using the electrical tape tape the wires down around the inner edge of the outlet to the hinge... (Don't go onto the hinge look at the picture...)

Then take the A23 battery and use the electrical tape to get it to stick near the hinge... (Look at picture for placement...)
Attach the wires to the battery so LED lights up...
Tape one of the wires to the side of the battery and tape the other close to the other side of the battery... (Close enough so that when moved it will touch the battery and power the LED...)

Now the wires should be covered over with black wiring tape... (Look at picture for an idea...)

THE WIRING HATH BEEN FINISHED!!!

Step 3: The Wallet...

Make a wallet out of duct tape... (Make sure that it will fit right when put inside of the two outlet covers...)

What next is you take the packaging tape and cover the rectangular holes in the outlet covers... (Cover the back of them...) Then take small pieces of packaging tape and cover the exposed sticky side of the tape without going onto the edge of the outlet.

Once you have made the covers for the holes then take the packaging tape and make it so that your wallet sticks to the one of the outlet covers... (The inside... The cover without the wiring...)

Step 4: SE MAGNIFIQUE!!!

YOU SHOULD BE DONE!!! Test the wiring to see if that when you press down the wire turns on the LED. If not, then please go back to step 2...
