that glow when you turn them around.
The only thing you need is some simple electronics!
For this project i used a paper template of a diamond,
you can find them here: http://www.minieco.co.uk/paper-gems-new-templates/
Of course you can also create your own paper model.
The project will cost you about $5,
and won't take more than an hour.
Step 1: All you need
These are the things you need:
- paper model
download a template here: http://www.minieco.co.uk/paper-gems-new-templates/
or create one yourself
- tilt switch
preferably one without mercury
- LED light
choose a color of your liking, make sure it works with 3V
- battery CR2032 3V
- battery holder for CR2032
- circuit board (custom or diy)
I fabricated a custom circuit board, send me a message if you want one too!
and possibly a sharp knife to cut out small details
- soldering iron
any kind that works well with the paper you are using
to trim excess material off your finished circuit
- glue gun (optional)
to mount the circuit inside the model
