A paper circuit is a functioning electronic circuit built on a paper surface. Projects can range from greeting cards, to origami, to traditional art such as paintings or drawings. What makes them unique is the use of traditional fine art techniques to create a circuit that is combines aesthetics and functionality. Paper circuits can be built with a variety of arts and crafts materials and electronic components. Try one of our kits to get started or check out some of SparkFun’s resources and spare parts.
