Chibitronics card for beginners ~Light up cactus card with a replaceable battery box~

Hi, crafty friends!

Today I make light up cactus card for beginners using Chibitronics and Sizzix cactus die.


When you push the flower pot, the cactus and heart glow.
And this card has a replaceable battery box.


I'm using these stamps and dies.


"Mariko Brown bold thank you"


What you need to make a light up card is like this.
"Chibitronics Pink, Orange, and Green LED Sticker Pack"
"Chibitronics Red, Yellow, and Blue LED Sticker Pack"
"3V coin cell battery (CR2016)"
"5mm wide Copper tape"


I will make the parts referring to the picture below.


  • 5.5 x 8.5 inch light brown cardstock
  • 4 x 5.25 inch white cardstock for circuit
  • vellum paper
  • 1 x 1.5 inch four cardboards for the battery box
  • 1 x 2 inch switch part
  • 1 x 1 inch white cardstock for the lid of battery box
  • Die cut cream cardstock with flower pot, cactus and heart dies and stamp the sentiment onto the cream cardstock.
  • three flower pot parts and three cactus parts
Put the cream cardstock on white cardstock and mark the lights and switch.


Mark the position of the Chibitronics. Fold 1 x 2 inch rectangular part in half and put it on the position of the switch. Draw the circuit with a pencil.


The “-” point of the Chibitronics needs to connect to the “-” side of the battery.
The “+” side of the Chibitronics needs to connect to the “+” side of the battery.
Adhere the copper tape on the drawing path.


Adhere the green and red Chibitronics on the mark.


Place the battery in the switch with the positive side up. Adhere copper tape on the Chibitronics to reinforce.


Make the battery box.

Place the battery onto the cardboard, and draw the outline with a pencil. Cut along the line with a craft knife.


Glue each of four cardboards together and glue the lid on the battery box.


Make cardboard and battery the same thickness.


Adhere vellum paper on the back of the cover panel.


Adhere the die cut parts on the cover panel.


Put the 3mm thick foam tape around the card base.


Adjust so that the thickness of the foam tape around the switch will be thicker than the thickness of the battery.

Adhere the cover panel on the card base.


Put the double-sided tape on the back of the card base.


Adhere the finished parts on two folded light brown cardstock.


Looking from the side, it is like this.


Stamp the sentiment on the washi tape using StazOn Jet Black ink.
I'm using this stamp.
"Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours Stamp Set"


Put 3 mm wide washi tape so that the battery box will not fall.


I finished it!


You can enjoy a long time by replacing the batteries.
