Yay! It looks great! I'm so glad the hot glue worked!
Hi there! Thanks for the vote. The back of the pendant is exactly what you see in the circle call-out in Step Four Image 4.6. The Lilypad slides into the groves of the back piece and is exposed for easy access to the on/off switch and battery. Hope this helps! :-)
I actually used a piece of white 2mm thermoplastic between the LEDs and film negative in another version of this with the same results. :-/ There just isn't enough space between the LEDs and the film to create an even glow. I did consider using small flat LEDs (like these: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13902) for this project, which might have left enough space between the film and the LEDs to create more diffusion, but I decided to go with the LEDs I already had on hand in order to simplify the wiring so people who are less savvy with electronics could recreate this project. Also, I kind of like the uneven effect; makes it look more artsy in my opinion. Haha.
Simplified 3D Printed Animatronic Dual Eye Mechanism
You shouldn't have to pick the groves out. Mine printed out on a Creality Ender 3 Pro exactly as you see it in the photos. I'm still a bit of a newbie when it comes to 3D printing, so I'm not the best person to help you troubleshoot. If I had to guess, maybe play around with your infill settings or use a software, like (free) Ultimaker Cura, to slice and prep the .STL before printing.
I like the idea of using slides. The pendant design could even be tweaked so that the slides could be switched out!
Thank you! :-)

Wouldn't you know it? I had to create a version of this activity without the Lilypad battery holders after all, so if your library can't afford to buy the Lilypads in bulk, this is a much less expensive alternative. It was a bit last minute, so for the moment I only have the attached image to provide you with instructions, but if you have any questions feel free to ask. I will say, though, that in execution, this activity is easier for younger kids using the Lilypads. When using the brads to complete the electrical circuit, a few of the kids had trouble getting a secure connection between the brads and the LEDs, which resulted in glasses that either had flickering or non-functioning LEDs. The activity also took about 2 hours to complete.
Thanks for the vote!

It's actually pretty easy to peer over the frame of the glasses. I have no trouble navigating a room while wearing them.

Hmmm...Well, you can buy Lilypads in bulk on Amazon for a significantly better rate (20 for $25 instead of the 2 for $7 I liked to under materials), which is what my library did. If that is still above your budget, there is likely a way create a paper circuit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C88JUVXSzKo) with copper tape that would be more economical, but it would require a little more planning to get the circuit to fit on the frames, especially if you still want to use two LEDs per lens.

Thank you! I'm glad you liked this Instructable. :-)
Glad you liked it! Yeah, I agree that the position of the ramen on the chopsticks is not accurate, but for the purpose of the lamp, I just liked the way it looked showing the tips. :-)
Thanks for the tip! The clay actually pops out of the Kinder Joy wrapper easily because the plastic is flexible and smooth. I mostly brought attention to the "damage" done during the process so people wouldn't spend extra time trying to get the perfect shaped egg when the curved part needed to be cut away after de-molding.

Thank you! And you would be surprised. It seems like a lot of work because there are a lot of steps and individual pieces to construct, but if it were not for having to wait on the resin and glue to cure, it is a project that could be completed in a day. :-)

Thank you! I initially planned on using resin, but I decided as I was making the necklace to test out how well the Bake and Bond adhered to the metal. Turns out, it attaches well, and as an added bonus it made the necklace easier for others to recreate. :-)

To add the rainbow on the back I first rolled out a thin layer of white polymer clay and cut it to the size and shape of the resin piece. After baking the clay oval, I painted the rainbow on top, and then I super glued the clay oval and resin piece into a store bought pendant. Hope that helps!
