Build It

While your parts are printing, solder a few LED sequins together in parallel using silicone coated wire according to the circuit diagram.

Nestle the sequins in the 3D printed plate-- you can use a nail file to adjust the tolerances for a snug fit.

Use some E6000 glue to stick the sequin plate in place. This stuff takes a little while to dry, but it makes your pendant a lot more durable than plain old hot glue.

Once your illuminated base is complete, you can build on the rest of the TARDIS! Just snap on the translucent box, then carefully glue on the outer walls and top.Once your illuminated base is complete, you can build on the rest of the TARDIS! Just snap on the translucent box, then carefully glue on the outer walls and top.

You can clean up excess glue with rubbing alcohol.

Use painter's tape to clamp the pieces in place while they dry, and place on a flat surface.

After the walls are dry enough not to slide around (45 min), you can glue on the top.

Assembly does not require a sonic screwdriver-- a regular phillips head will do just fine to attach the battery holder to the base plate.
