I have made and posted a few soft circuit projects but I have often found it difficult to get some of the components needed since there are no stores (that I know of) nearby and shipping to Canada can be overly expensive. So I try to make do
. One problem I've had was finding something to use as an on/off switch. I've improvised
by using switches from LED tealights which are a bit obtrusive in a soft circuit. I've also made some momentary switches
( is that the right term?), which are a bit annoying since the circuit only stays on as long as you press the switch.
So in this instructable I made a switch that stays on without having to keep pressing on it as well as have it look inconspicuous in a soft circuit project. As a bonus it not only turns a circuit on and off it can toggle more than one circuit. In the sample circuit I made to demonstrate you can switch between three LEDs.
