Here is my DT card:

This is a interactive pop up card featuring Happy Dance stamp set from Winnie and Walter.
The party balloons light up while opeing the card! How fun is it ?

For this card, I added four LED stickers behind the balloons.
I didn't use copper tape but use copper threads from wire which is unuseful. I think this make good use of waste material.

I make copper threads pass throung the tiny holes on the LED stickers and adhered with copper tape. 

Next, I created the circuit on another card, and then connected the copper threads and circuit with fabric tape patches. 

For the switch, I started off cutting the slit with an exacto knife. I also cut a sheet paper which function just like "pull-tab" . 

The mechanics attached underneath the "pull-tab" is the thing that two squares folded in half, butting up against each other and wrapped with copper tape. That will bridge the gap in the circuit to turn the lights on.

As this photo shows, when the card is closed, the "pull-tab" can not bridge the gap in the circuit. On the contrary, when the card is opened, the "pull-tab" can bridge the gap, and the LEDs light up.

You can check out a tutorial here that shows you how to make this card, or click my youtube channel.

The supplies I used are:
