Update: I’ve been accepted! See you in Providence on Saturday, October 11th!! If you’re in the area, stop by my table and say, “Hi!”
Having submitted and been accepted (yay!) to the MIT Mini Maker Faire, I’ve updated my projects, and this is my submission for the RI Faire.
The projects that I’m submitting are:
Tissue Paper & Gift Box Nightlights tutorial, now in 2 versions:
A simpler pattern, still using an LED tea light “candle” for the light source
The original design, now with 10mm LED, battery pack, and on/off switch.
No October submission would be complete without Creepy, Glowing Barbie!
The supplies for this project were a little more involved and included: a thrift store barbie, brown fabric, a green 5mm LED, one CR 2032 battery, translucent polymer clay, and lamp cord. The tools I used were a hot glue gun, scissors, and a pair of wire cutters/ strippers.
When you press Creepy Glowing Barbie’s back, her globe lights up. This project wasn’t as easy, but might have been even more fun to design and implement.
Making Jewelry Out of Recycled Take-Out Containers tutorial, or how to make your own Shrinky Dinks out of recyclable materials and Sharpies:

Thank you for your consideration. I hope to see you at the RI Mini Maker Faire!
