Light Up Pop Up Box Card Tutorial

Light Up Pop Up Box Card
        Hi friends, with nature's forces playing havoc at many parts of the world including Mumbai ,in India....I would like to share a card which echoes the sentiment "May the Sun shine brightly and bring cheer".
Light Up Pop Up Box Card
           This Pop Up Card has multiple layers of sparkling clouds, cheerful hot-air balloons floating up in the sky [on acetate strips] and a gorgeous sparkling rainbow! I went an extra bit in this one and made the Sun light up on pressing one cloudy corner!

I wanted to convey that no matter how cloudy and gloomy the scene is , the sun always comes up!

How to make a Light Up Card
The easiest way to make a light up card is using Chibitronics supplies. You can buy Chibitronics starter kits if you like but it's more economical to pick up just the essential components separately which are
Chibitronics Kit
  1. LED Lights - I used Chibitronics  sticker LED lights as these are adhesive backed, tiny ,lightweight, come in various colors . If you dont get these in your country you can always use regular LEDs but they will be bulky and trickier to use. The Chibitronics LEDs being fairly flat and tiny make them ideal for paper-crafters and you can even use a couple to light up a card or layout!
  2. Conductive tape - I used Copper tape by Chibitronics  as I decided that other electrical conductor options like aluminium foil and bare wire would be too tricky to use though technically they would work! This particular copper tape is adhesive on one side so ideal to use in paper-crafts and can be cut with a scissors or even be torn with your hands!

  3. Battery for the LED - I used a Micro Lithium 3V cell battery I picked up from my local electrical shop.
I have a video Tutorial showing the basic steps on how I made the card. It is not as detailed a Tutorial as I usually do as it was very tricky to photograph the circuit making steps  so do forgive me !

The Pop Up Card folds flat for mailing but I think I would rather hand deliver this special card as I would love to see the recipient's reaction!!

 I would like to especially thank all my crafty blogger and social media friends who without knowing have helped me see the sunshine on many a cloudy day! Thank you !!
