Step 1:

what you`ll need

sharp scissors

solar calculator (preferably old all you need from it is the circuit board and solar panel)

optional:

decoration

Step 2:

this step is purely optional

take your decorations and use an adhesive to make them stick to the back of the circuit board

Step 4:

that`s all there is to it so just leave your comments and your creative ways of destroying the calculator the get the parts
