You light me up

Hi everyone and welcome to Pear Blossom Press's Power Pack Mega Hop. 

The Power Pack is an amazing little creation.  It uses the basic science experiment we all done as kids at school.  As long as you have the basic electronic circuit you have a lit light!

I love this little pack.  Besides giving us light in our project, it comes in a cute little pack like this.  And it is reasonably priced to boot!

This is all you need for one project ( unless you want two lights then you will need double. 

to watch a video on this go here to Pear Blossom's blog.  It is so easy to follow and on top of that it is so quick to do.  And that is a bonus, quick and easy project that has a WOW factor!

This photo shows you the circuit I completed.  I placed the images I wanted on the bookmark and placed the battery pack and light under these images.  I removed images and traced around the pack and light so I knew the position of them.  Then I cut around them with a craft knife.  This way the whole circuit can be in the middle of my sandwich (front and back panels of the bookmark). 

And this photo shows you when you press on the spot the light works.  Always test this before putting your project together.  That way you know it works.  And adjust if you need to. 

My youngest has been bugging me to make her another bookmark.  So this is what I came up with. 
Then when we dim the lights and press on the chair......

It works!  She was so excited to get this.  I showed the son and now he wants one too!  LOL.  A clever little invention. 

OK. There will be a few blogs here you can visit to see how to use this product.  Grab yourself a cuppa first so you can take your time and enjoy.
