Duration: 45 Minutes
How To Make It
Build your circuit.
Press adhesive shoes onto your circuit.
With power on, test your circuit by opening the littleBits Invent app and selecting the "SLIDER" from the "BIT CONTROLS" menu. The bargraph should light up as you slide the purple circle back and forth on your screen.
Use scissors to trim off of the bottom of your brown paper bag.
Draw your favorite Disney Tangled lantern design on the front of your brown paper bag.
Cut out your design.
Cut an unfolded napkin (preferably brown) so that it is the same size and shape as the front of your brown paper bag.
Attach your trimmed napkin to the front of your brown paper bag placing one Glue Dot on each corner.
Cut out a piece cardboard that has a width equal to your brown paper bag and a length equal to the front and top combined.
Create a loop with your battery cable and secure it using a rubber band.
Cut a small hole in the center of the rectangle that corresponds to the top of your brown paper bag.
Remove adhesive shoe stickers and attach your circuit to your piece of cardboard as shown. Use Glue Dots to attach your battery to the cardboard.
Turn power on.
Fold up the rectangle that corresponds to the top of your brown paper bag and pull the battery cable loop through the hole.
Cut a small hole in the top of your brown paper bag, that's the same size as the hole you cut in your piece of cardboard.
Slide your folded piece of cardboard into your brown paper bag and pull your battery cable loop through the hole.
Hang your lantern up in a dark place and control by selecting the "SLIDER" from the "BIT CONTROLS" menu on the littleBits Invent app.
