“3V coin cell battery”(CR2016 or CR2032)
5mm wide Copper tape

I’m die cutting a pink cardstock with a scalloped rectangle die and die cutting kraft and white cardstock with a square frame die.
And die cutting a 3mm thick foam sheet with two square dies as in the upper right.
And die cutting two white cardstocks with a coffee love die.

 

 

Please do not throw away eyes, lip and hands parts.

 

 

I’m stamping a sentiment stamp with black ink.

 

 

I’m using Tsukineko memento tuxedo black ink.

 

 

With coffee cup parts in place, I’m drawing heart marks using a pencil.

 

 

I’m cutting out into the shape of hearts.

 

 

It will be like this.

 

 

Place the cover panel on the card base, I’m marking my lights.

 

 

I’m also marking a battery.

 

 

The size of the switch is 7/8 inch square.

 

 

Leave a space for the width of the form sheet.

 

 

I’m using a small rectangular paper to make switch.
The size is 1 3/4 inch x 7/8 inch.

 

 

I’m drawing the circuit with a pencil.
To turn on multiple LEDs with one battery, I can make a parallel circuit.

 

 

I’m adhering the copper tape on the drawing path.

 

 

I’m using bone folder to smooth all the copper path.

 

 

I’m adhering a red Chibitronics LED sticker on the left side and a pink Chibitronics LED sticker on the right side.

 

 

Take a look at the battery’s signs and place it in the swtich.
I’m using a 3V coin cell batery. (CR2016 or CR2032)

 

 

The lights turns on!

 

 

I’m adhering 3mm thick foam frame on the base card.

 

 

To keep in place the battery, I’m adhering foam tape all around it.
Adjust the height of the foam tape is higher than the battery.
I’m using “1/8″ Thick Foam Tape“.

 

 

I’m going to color with Copic markers.

 

 

I’m adhering a vellum paper on the back of the coffee cup parts.

 

 

I’m adhering eyes, lip and hands parts.

 

 

I’m cutting out along the coffee cup shape.

 

 

The parts of the coffee cup was completed.

 

 

Adhering the cover panel to the card base.

 

 

I’m adhering coffee cup parts on the cover panel.

 

 

Finally, adhering the cover panel to the pink cardstock.

 

 

I finished it!

When you make a parallel circuit, you can add as many LEDs as you want.
