L.E.D Reindeer Greeting Card
I thought I would add a little “geek” to our greeting cards this year, and add a simple circuit to create a light-up reindeer!
- recycled card blanks and envelopes
- 1.6V red l.e.d
- 3V button battery
- self adhesive copper tape (I used the type sold in garden centres, as a slug repellent)
- electrical tape
- recycled card in light brown, brown and white
- glue stick
- additional decorative elements such as ink pad, stamps, glitter etc. (optional)
Cut out your reindeer template from the light brown (body) and brown (antlers) recycled card
Put slider in place (copper side facing down), cut another piece of card (make sure to add the cut out) and glue to the side and end stops. Tape it down with electrical tape.
Now you have a very ‘flashy’ reindeer greeting card to give to friends and family! Happy Holidays!!
