How to make light up pop-up sphere card.

Hi crafty friend!

Today I make light up pop-up sphere card using Chibitronics.


When you open the card, the sphere pops up.

When you pull the pull tab, the rabbits glow.


I'm using these stamps and dies.

What you need to make a light up card is like this.


I'm using these papers and acetate sheet.
I'm using white, pink, light green cardstock and vellum paper.
"Hot off the press heat resistant acetate"


I'm using this ink.
"StazOn Opaque fava green"

~How to make the notch~

Draw three lines at 5/8 inch intervals on copy paper.
Adhere the ring parts on the copy paper with masking tape and mark the notches.

  • Mark the 1mm width notch along the line of copy paper.
  • Draw a line from the outside of the ring to half the width of the ring.

~Assemble the sphere~


  • Combine the central notch of pink ring and large acetate ring.
  • Combine the central notch of small ring and the side notch of large ring.
  • All rings combine in a grid pattern.
Combining everything correctly makes it possible to fold flatly.

Pull out the thread diagonally.






~Make the card base~

Put two pink cardstock 1.5 mm apart with washi tape and draw the circuit with a pencil.

Cut the slit with 1 mm width with a craft knife.


Adhere the double-sided tape on the position of the battery.

Adhere the copper tape on the drawing path.

  • At the position of the battery, peel off the release paper, adhere the negative side copper tape, turn it back and cut it.
  • At the position of the battery leave about 1 inch of positive side copper tape and cut it.

Make the switch parts.

  • Fold square parts in half.
  • Insert the switch part into the slit.
  • Place the switch part on the right end of the slit and adhere the copper tape.
  • Pull the switch part out of the slit and adhere copper tape around it.

Apply the double-sided tape on the switch part and adhere the pull tab parts from the front and back.


  • Adhere two parts together with thin foam tape.
  • Place the battery on the copper tape with the positive side up and adhere the positive side copper tape on the battery.
  • Attach the conductive fabric tape for reinforcement on the copper foil tape on the fold line of the card.

Mark at 7/8 inch from the center of the card and make a hole at the mark.

Put white cardstock on pink cardstock and mark the position of the copper tape on the pink cardstock.


Adhere the copper tape on the drawing path on the white cardstock.

At the center of the card leave about 1/2 inch copper tape and cut it.

Pull the left and right thread evenly to raise the sphere.

  • Pass the thread from hole to copper tape and adhere copper tape on the thread.
  • At the copper tape, place the thread on the copper tape and adhere another copper tape on the thread.

Adhere a thin foam tape on the lower half of the card.


Adhere a double-sided tape on the upper half of the card.
