Hi, crafty friends!

This is Eiko and I make light up see-through circuit potbelly tag using Chibitronics and Papertrey Ink stamps and dies.

You can see the inside circuit from the outside.

I will make the parts referring to the picture below.

  • Die cut brown cardstock with reindeer die.
  • Die cut red cardstock with nose die.
  • Die cut cream cardstock with muzzle, antlers and ears dies.
  • Die cut black cardstock with front and back hooves dies.

  • Two acetate pull tab parts size 2.25 x 0.5 inches.
  • Two acetate switch parts size 0.5 inch square.
  • Two clear bubbles.
  • Die cut double-sided adhesive sheet using the 3.25 and 2.75 inches circle dies.

  • Adhere the die cut parts on the reindeer body.
  • Stamp the eyes using Memento tuxedo black ink.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Versamark and heat embossing with white embossing powder.

~Make the circuit~

    • Die cut the copy paper using 3.25 inches circle die.
  • Fold in half and make a crease. Repeat this process three times.
  • Place the copy paper on the back of the reindeer body and mark the outline of the circle window.
  • Place the heart shaped paper on the copy paper, mark the outline of the heart.
  • Mark the position of the battery on the outline of the heart.
  • Mark the position of the Chibitronics in the upper right.
  • Draw a line at the lower right crease and draw three lines at 1/4 inch intervals.
  • Draw a line at the center of the circle and slightly outside the heart outline.

  • Put the acetate sheet on the copy paper with washi tape.
  • Cut the 1 mm width slit between the two lines with a craft knife.
  • Put the double-sided tape on the position of the battery.
  • Adhere the copper tape on the drawing path.
  • At the position of the battery, peel off the release paper, adhere the negative side copper tape, turn it back and cut it.
  • Place the battery on the copper tape with the positive side up.
  • Adhere the positive side copper tape on the battery and drawing path.
  • Adhere the red Chibitronics on the mark.
  • Adhere copper tape on the Chibitronics to reinforce.

  • Remove the acetate sheet from the copy paper.
  • Adhere the copper tape to the back through a slit.

~Make the switch part~

  • Fold square parts in half.
  • Insert the switch part into the slit.
  • Place the switch part on the right end of the slit and adhere the copper tape.
  • Pull the switch part out of the slit and adhere copper tape around it.
  • Insert the switch part into the slit and confirm that the LED turns on.

  • Put the double-sided tape on the switch part.
  • Adhere the pull tab parts from the front and back.
  • Adhere two pull tab parts together with clear foam tape.

  • Place the clear bubble on the acetate sheet, mark the position of the pull tab.
  • Cut along the mark with scissors.
  • Put the double-sided tape ring on the clear bubble and cut along the notch.

  • Adhere the clear bubble to the reindeer body.
  • Adhere two reindeer body together.

It is wonderful to make it with wood sheet instead of cardstock.
