LED Origami Tutorial & Video

Make your origami glow! It’s easy to make a simple circuit illuminating any origami form. This tutorial will show you how to make a paper lotus flower and frog, and two ways to light them up. You can either affix a coincell battery on the underside of the form or install LEDs to use with a piece of a clear, conductive material called ITO. By powering up the whole plane with a battery pack and alligator clips, you can play out scenes with your flowers and frogs by arranging them on this clear “pond” to switch them on. This is a great project to do at a workshop or with kids!
