Tooling an Ammonite in Leather
Not a stupid question at all. Yes, I actually cut the lights with scissors just like I would cut string! I cut them so that the top end would have a couple of inches of wire while the bottom was cut right after the light (and no, I did absolutely nothing to the ends...). By the way, there is no real direction to the lights - I am only referring to top and bottom in reference to how they ended up on the chime.I avoided having to deal with resistors by limiting the power source to 5V, so everything could just get wired directly. To identify ground and power wires I just stripped the end of the wires a little bit and used a 3V button battery. This was really easy so no worries.
Glad you liked it :)Please do post a picture of your bag once it is finished. Have fun with it!
