Introduction: Papercraft Lamp
Hello everyone, I hope you enjoy my instructables. This instructable is made for the papercraft contest 2017. I shall show you how to make wonderful lamps entirely from paper. What are we waiting for, lets get doing...
Step 1: Materials and Tools Needed
Paper (The main ingredient)
Scissors or paper cutter
3.7 - 9v battery
Transparent tape or glue
Step 2: Making the Pattern
Take a paper of any size(I have taken A4). Make sure light passes through the paper. Now, draw any pattern on it(Draw it lightly so that there's no need of erasing it later). In this case,it will be a floral pattern. You may draw a pattern of your choice.
Step 3: Cuttinf the Pattern
Now cut the pattern along the borders carefully using a paper cutter or scissors. Refer the image for cutting instructions. Make sure you don't cut it completely or the paper will get separated. I hope you can understand what I mean. : )
Step 4: Preparing the Structure of the Lamp
Cut many patterns and roll the paper to a cylinder. Tape the end or glue it down.
Now for the LEDs
Tape one LED to the bottom of the lamp and connect one wire to each pin of the LED. Now make sure the lamp stands vertically.
Step 5: Final Assembly
Now connect the terminals of the battery to the appropriate terminals of the LED (wires connected).
Small pin of LED - Negative terminal of battery
Large pin -Positive terminal of battery
And there you go! The lamp glows to give a wonderful look. Make many such lamps and see the beauty.
