Make and Take for advanced at Creativation 2019

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 gray cardstock with penguin die. Stamp the sentiment and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Die cut yellow cardstock with beak and foot dies.
  • Die cut white cardstock with face die.
  • Stick the die cut parts on the penguin body.
  • Die cut acetate sheet with 3.25 inches circle die.
  • Two acetate pull tab parts size 2.25 x 0.5 inches.
  • Two acetate switch parts size 0.5 inch square.
  • Two clear bubbles. Place the clear bubble on the acetate sheet, mark the position of the pull tab and cut along the mark with scissors.
  • Die cut double-sided adhesive sheet using the 3.25 and 2.75 inches circle dies and stick it on the clear bubbles.

~Make the circuit~

How to make the template is here.

  • Draw circles with diameters of 3.25 and 2.75 inches on paper.
  • Draw the heart on the paper.
  • 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 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 circular acetate sheet on the 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.

  • Stick the copper tape on the pre-drawn path.
  • At the position of the battery, peel off the release paper, stick the negative side copper tape, fold it back and cut it.

  • Place the battery on the copper tape with the positive side up.

  • Stick the positive side copper tape on the battery and following the pre-drawn path.
  • At the position of the slit leave about 1 inch of positive side copper tape and cut it.
  • Then starting from LED position, go back to the slit and do the same on the other side of the slit.

  • Attach the LED to the copper tape, over the outline.
  • Press down the LED, and make sure the copper tape is smooth with bone folder.

  • Stick the short copper tape on the LED to reinforce.
  • Remove the circular acetate sheet from the paper.
  • Pass both copper tape through the slit.

  • Stick the copper tape to the backside of the acetate sheet.

~Make the switch part~

  • Fold square parts in half.
  • Insert the switch parts into the slit, on both sides.
  • Place the switch parts at the right end of the slit and stick the copper tape to the flat surface.
  • Then remove the switch parts from the slit and stick the copper tape around the other side of the switch.
  • Put a double layer of the copper tape in this way.

Re-insert the switch parts into the slit and test the LED turns on.

Apply the double-sided tape to both sides of the switch parts.

  • Apply the double-sided tape to both sides of  the switch parts.

  • Stick the pull tab parts on the front and back.
  • Stick two pull tab parts together with double-sided clear foam tape.

  • Aligning the gap with the pull tab.
  • Stick the front side clear bubble to the acetate sheet.

  • Empty the sparkly jewels into the back side clear bubble.

  • Stick the back side clear bubble to the acetate sheet.

  • Stamp or draw the eyes.
  • Stick the penguin body on the clear bubble with double-sided tape and adhesive tape runner.
  • Stick two penguin pieces together.

I finished it!
