Chinese Cookie Box



About: I'm an engineer who loves to invent.

As a reminder of the last holiday in China, cookies were brought and eaten.
Since the box was too good to throw away, it was considered what could happen to it.

Enlightenment, a lamp!

  • 30cm LED light set (set includes wiring and power supply)


  • scissors
  • craft knife
  • pencil
  • ruler

    I love how the finished light looks! You should swap out the main photo with one of the lit up ones - they're really eye catching :D
