Father’s Day is just around the corner and we created this project with pop’s day in mind, but we think it’s perfect for any occasion where a dash of DIY is just the right ingredient. So check it out - the Light-Up, Pop-Up Greeting Card!

Creative Technologist Nick made this project by building a classic pop-up card and adding just a touch of geekery - some copper tape and a handful of LilyPad components. Specifically, here are the parts he used:

The results are pretty cool and certainly (we think) better than the sickeningly sweet poetry you might find in a standard grocery store greeting card. So this Father’s Day (or birthday - or graduation day) build your loved ones a card they’ll proudly display!

  • Very cool, great job! Is that an additional LilyPad slide switch towards the front of the card? Makes more sense than just the switch on the battery holder.

    I’m thinking I may make a simple slide switch with the copper tape, similar to those used in the commercial cards with sound chips. Thanks so much for the idea and inspiration!

  • sickingly => sickeningly

    But cool card and cool idea.

  • I like it and wanna build it.
