2. Take the coin cell Holder and solder the -ve LED legs to the -ve terminal of the Holder.

3. Fold and solder the +ve leg of one LED over the other LED.

4. Take the vibrator motor and using Hot Glue, attach it over the cell Holder.

5. Take an ON/Off switch and using hot glue paste it on the cell Holder.

Note: Refer to the schematics for making connections.

6. Using a small wire, make connection between the motor and the -ve LED legs.

7. Also, make connection between the switch and the +ve terminal of cell Holder.

8. Take another wire, solder it to the motor and the switch terminal.

9. Now, connect the +ve LED legs and the +ve motor terminals together.

10. Take two hard wires and fold them equally to make legs.
