Step 4: Build the Circuit

Now its time to build this circuit! Follow the schematic I gave you guys and now I will meet you on the next step!

Step 5: Circuit Completed

The circuit is now complete! GREAT!!

Step 6: Add Double Sided Tape

Add double sided tape to the edges so when you put the board and battery on the bottom side of the lid, it is able to stick there. Make sure the LED is pointing to the middle of the container.

Step 7: Put the Cover On

Now put the cover on the lid and make sure everything is secure and neat.

Now cut the shape of a heart out. I just eyeballed my heart, but if you really want to get fancy print out a picture from online and trace it onto your thick paper and cut it out! Now go ahead and tape it onto the container.
