This instructable is an origami flower that is lit up using LED's. In this instructable I show only a flower but you could do many more things.

Step 1: Materials List

These are the materials
1 Origami Figure
A couple of 3-volt coin-cell batteries
Assorted LED's
1 Roll of electrical tape

Step 2: Testing and Securing the LEDs

In this step you attach the LEDs to the batteries using the electrical tape. One method is to put the LEDs in place and then wrap the battery with the tape as shown in the picture.

Step 3: Lighting Up the Origami

To light the origami up I simply just stuck the LEDs in the origami figure to illuminate it. Then i used clear tape to seal it closed

Step 4: THE END

You can now use this for whatever you want. You can also light up other figures such as dogs and swans.

    Wow, this is awesome! I've made that origami lily in the past, but I never thought of using LEDs to make it glow.

    Nice! Electronics + Origami = Awesome! You should check out my origami that uses conductive paint to sense when someone is near here
