How to make light up popping out toast card. (easy pull tab switch)

Hi, crafty friends!

This is Eiko and I make light up popping out toast card using Chibitronics and Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

When you pull the tab, the toast pops out of the toaster and the hearts glow.

Using Lawn Fawn’s let’s toast pull tab add-on, you can make a pull tab switch very easily.

I will make the parts referring to the picture below.

  • 4 1/4 x 11 inches kraft cardstock.
  • 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches pattern paper and white cardstock. Die cut these papers using notch and straight slit dies. Die cut pattern paper using heart die.
  • Stamp the sentiment onto small pattern paper. (Size 7/8 x 3 1/2 inches)
  • Two pull tab parts.
  • Stamp the toaster onto white cardstock and pattern paper. Die cut the top of the toaster with curved slit die.
  • Stamp the toast onto the white cardstock and die cut it.
  • Color the toast and toaster with Copic markers.
  • Die cut the paper using small tab and sleeve dies.
  • 7/16 x 7/8 inch white cardstock.
  • Stamp the heart onto white vellum.

  • Stick the sentiment part on the cover panel.
  • Put the cover panel on white cardstock and mark the lights with a pencil.

  • Mark the position of the Chibitronics and the battery.
  • Draw the circuit with a pencil.
  • Apply the double-sided tape on the battery place.
  • Stick the copper tape on the pre-drawn path.
  • At the battery place, peel off the release paper, stick the negative side copper tape, fold it back and cut it.
  • Stick the positive side copper tape.
  • At the position of the battery leave the positive side copper tape about 1 inch and cut it.
  • Place the battery on the copper tape with positive side facing up and stick the positive side copper tape on the battery.
  • Attach the red LED to the copper tape, over the outline.
  • Stick short copper tape on the edges of the LED to reinforce.

  • Cut off the flap one of the pull tab parts and make it T-shape.
  • Make a switch with T-shaped pull tab part.

  • Fold the flap along the crease.

  • Insert the flap into the slit and place the switch at the top end of the slit.

  • Mark the position of the copper tape.

  • Remove the switch part from the slit and stick the copper tape on the mark.

  • Fold the flap along the crease.

  • Re-insert the switch part into the slit and test the LEDs turn on.

  • Make the cover panel.
  • Stick vellum paper on the back of the cover panel.
  • Insert the switch part from the back of the slit of the cover panel.

  • Stick the toast part on the flap.
  • Apply the foam tape to the back side of the toaster part.
  • Stick the foam tape on the edge of the toaster part.
  • Pass the top of the toast part through the slit of the toaster part.

  • Assemble the sleeve.
  • Fold the sleeve along the crease.
  • Attach tape glue to the center of the back side of the sleeve.
  • Pass the sleeve through the back side of the pull tab and stick it on the cover panel.
  • Attach tape glue to another pull tab part.
  • Stick two pull tab parts together.
  • Attach the tape glue inside the tab of the sleeve.
  • Stick them together so as to wrap around the pull tab.

  • Stick the foam tape around the entire edge of the back side of the cover panel.
  • Insert the switch part into the slit of the card base.
  • Stick the cover panel to the card base.
  • Stick small rectangular part on the flap.
  • Place the pull tab on the bottom of the slit and trim off any of the excess.
  • Stick the small part on top of the pull tab.
