How to Create Your Own Light Up Card

I've had a few questions on how I do my light up cards, so I figured I'd so a video tutorial. They really aren't that hard and once you get the hang of them they are quite fun to make. Again, my voice over is probably as awkward as I feel doing it. 😅 So forgive my rambling ways.

These run a bit more than when I purchased my original supplies in 2020, but they still aren't over a dollar a card in the end. The batteries are the most expensive and depending on the number you go with you can get them at around 20-30 cents a piece. The LED's are around 5 cents or so a piece and the copper tape will last for many many paper circuits. So initial supplies will run a bit, but overall if you love doing light up cards this is the most bang for your buck.

Supplies Used:

Lawn Fawn Fortune Teller Tabby, Mice from various Lawn Fawn sets.

Stencil is from an assortment I picked up a long time ago...sorry.

Stencil paste is purple glitter paste from Brutus Monroe

Inks: Distress Prize Ribbon, Aged Mahogany, Lawn Fawn Jet Black, VersaMark watermark, and Staz-on Black

Copper tape, Button style LED, Wired LED, and CR2032 batteries- Amazon (These should be linked below...if it worked.)

Keep getting inky,
