Description: We designed this board to give the user a low profile button without any sharp edges. Button closes when you push it and opens when you release (momentary push button).
LilyPad is a wearable e-textile technology developed by Leah Buechley and cooperatively designed by Leah and SparkFun. Each LilyPad was creatively designed to have large connecting pads to allow them to be sewn into clothing. Various input, output, power, and sensor boards are available. They’re even washable!
Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles.

Used these to create light up pop ups with my middle school students. Easy directions and successful outcome!
We used these for some light-up Valentine Cards, used the tutorial from the tutorial sections. All the participants had a blast, especially when they got their LED’s to light up by pressing their LilyPad Button!
Mahalo! (Thank you!)
Please make more enjoyable craft projects that we can share in our library!
I’ve used these LilyPad button boards with 2nd through 6th graders. We use them to make paper circuit greeting cards with copper tape and LEDs. They are a huge success with all age groups!
I love the LilyPad Button, and that’s saying something, since I’m a total novice to this whole circuitry thing. Very easy to install, and it’s been completely reliable. Would definitely recommend!
It’s small, easily incorporated into your projects and it works, enough said.
Bought a bunch for an elementary school technology club project. They work great with copper tape for paper circuits, and the low profile makes them perfect to use in greeting cards. Kids had a blast!
Very simple to install using copper tape. Reasonable pricing. Great little gadget.
