LED Origami Flower and Frog

Becky Stern and Risa Rose of Adafruit explain how to make an LED origami flower and frog in this instructional video. After all the folding you have to affix LED lights. One method explained is to use a clear, conductive plastic material called ITO. Another option is to use a small coin cell battery (which should be kept away from small children). You can find step-by-step instructions here on Adafruit. The lotus flowers are very pretty. This idea could also be used to make a cool Christmas bow that lights up. The little frog gets a green LED light. Take a look:
