Light up stars using Chibitronics LED Stickers and a Reed Switch

Hi Everyone, Melissa here.

Today I am sharing a 4 light circuit which uses a ‘Reed Switch‘ and the ‘Craft with Lights Kit‘ from Chibitronics. This card also features the ‘A star is born‘ stamp set from Colorado Craft Company.

For more details, please keep reading …..

The images have been stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers.

The background has been created using Distress Oxide Inks and splattered with water then white Amsterdam Ink.

The Circuit has been created using the ‘Craft with Lights kit’ . This circuit is powered by a 2032 battery as it is a thicker battery and will have a permanent connection to the circuit. The lights will turn on by the ‘Reed Switch’, when a magnet (attached to the back of a star) touches the top of the switch.

Here is a close up of the circuit:

Check out the video below for the step by step instructions on how to create the circuit/lights for this card.
