How To Make It
: Paper Flowers
Orange Heart Boxes
Make different paper craft flowers - we made three different flowers: orange hearts (technically not a flower, but we loved the little box), purple hyacinths and a yellow daffodil.
: Add littleBits Electronics
Paper Flowers with electronics
Make each paper flower do something different.
We made the heart boxes to light up, with the the Long LED. Secure into two of the heart boxes with sticky tape.
Added the vibration motor to make our third heart box buzz.
The hyacinth was asking to spin around, so we made it using a straw to fit onto the DC Motor.
The pinwheel daffodil was attached to the Servo to swing this way and that way.
: Build a Display
Secure littleBits to LEGO
Duplo LEGO is a perfect building material for a stand. We used a base and built the card between two short LEGO towers. We used sticky tack to secure the littleBits to the Duplo.
