I love origami cranes so I wanted to make a small lamp out of the fabrics I have at home.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Fold the Cranes
Fold three cranes with stiff fabric and iron them while folding.
Step 2: Finish the Edges
If the fabric is fraying, use a lighter to burn the fraying edges lightly
Step 3: Make the Base
Cut a square out of the fabric and put cotton filling/ fabric scraps inside, then sew the top together
Step 4: Design the Circuit
I used an Attiny with touch switch for the lights, so I planned how to make the circuit
Step 5: Testing the Circuit
Tape everything down and see if the circuit work okay, then solder the components
Step 6: Sew the Circuit on the Base
Put the circuit on top of the base and sew them together from the center. I added more fabric strips for aesthetic purposes
Step 7: Place the Cranes
Put the cranes on top and adjust them to the ideal positions, then sew them to the base
Step 8: Done!
Turn the lights off and turn the crane lamp on!
