Light up your loved one's life, with a light up Valentines card!!
I put this together in a bit of a rush, but I'm sure someone else can do a nicer job.
And it's my first instructable!!
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Get the following:
3mm Diffused LEDs
A switch (preferably the smallest / thinnest you can find)
A couple of 1.5v button batteries (I used AG-10)
Double sided tape
Step 2: Make the Circuit
Cut out a hole in some rough card for your switch (this is going to be on the inside of the card). I bent the legs a little for a slimmer profile.
Strip some wire and join the batteries together and link them to your switch and to a couple of bits of foil stuck down with double sided tape.
Step 3: Add the LEDs
Tape another bit of card over the top of your circuit with some strips of foil that fold over the edge and touch the foil underneath.
Tape the LEDs to the foil "runners" remembering to check the polarity!
Step 4: Assemble the Card
Attach you circuit assembly to the front of a folded piece if card, remebering to cut a small hole for the switch.
Cut a heart (or anything else you fancy) out of another piece of card, and cut a square of plastic from the clear plastic wallet. Tape this over the front of your card / circuit and enjoy.
Write something nice on the inside and send!!
