Intro: Personalizing Bookmarks With LEDs and Silhouette
Creating a personalized bookmark using an LED and Silhouette stickers is an easy and exciting introduction to circuits.
Step 1: Create Your Silhouette Stickers
To create the Silhouette stickers, select from your image library or purchase designs from the Silhouette Studio store. For my stickers, I chose to repeat to fill the page after I had sized the design. I printed the design on colored contact paper using a cutting blade depth of 5. The contact paper worked perfectly as an adhesive sticker for the foam bookmarks.
Step 2: Design Your Bookmark

With inexpensive materials, you can create your own original bookmark that can be the first introduction to circuitry for a range of ages.
