solder the 2 plcc2 leds in series. Add the copper wire to one side and solder it to the longer piece. You need this for strength. Do the same to tge other side with your resistor. Add some hot glue for more strength.

Add some more solder to the bottom of the long pcb for contact points.

Step 4: Testing
